Market overview

Juices , Smoothies and Dairy

The UK juice and smoothies market has seen a 12%  increase in value per litre demonstrating the successful “premiumisation” of the sector in the last 5 years. Whilst total quantity consumed has fallen the quality and inventiveness of blends means the value of the sector is circa £1.7bn. 55% of juices sold are orange, and carton remains the most prevalent pack format. PET is associated with premium brands and currently delivers in excess of 20% the products on shelf.

With increasing awareness of nutrition, in particular the migration of protein from gymnasiums to mainstream retailer, dairy based drinks have been developing momentum. Esterform PET bottles has traditionally supported fresh flavoured milk, and now we are packaging exciting new indulgence milk shake products as well as high performance nutritional supplements.
