Sales of soft drinks declined very marginally, with losses across most major categories again off-set by gains in packaged water, driven in particular by the strong performance of still variants in modern retail. In Q1-16 alcoholic drinks declined suffering from a fall in consumer confidence in response to the slowdown in economic recovery. Q1-16 has seen a continued disaffection towards standard white milk, with progressive switch towards special milks and alternative dairy drinks.

Key Findings
  • In soft drinks, PL brands lost shares within modern retail principally driven by a significant reduction in promotional support by the retailers.
  • The shift towards off-premise continues, with beer in particular benefiting from the growing trend towards less structured meals at home, owing to its perception as a more versatile and informal beverage choice.
  • Price promotions continued to drive sales within ambient standard milk - which still accounts for at least two thirds of dairy drinks volume sales in Italy
  • Extensive advertising support by the leading players, also contributed to the positive development of the hot beverage category.
