Wednesday 7 August - Opportunity in the fast-growing CBD food and drinks market
CBD. It's the industry buzz word of the moment with products infused with the compound being added to the global F&B market weekly. Even brand favourites such as Ben & Jerry's and Mondelēz International intend to jump on the bandwagon once the ingredient is legalised as a food additive by the US federal government.
The market is expected to rapidly achieve mass-market appeal and in the US drinks market alone, it is projected that consumption will surge to over $1.4 billion by 2023, even with some regulatory restrictions remaining. In the case of a loosening regulatory landscape, value sales are projected to be even higher at around $2.6 billion.

Thursday 1 August - The rise of zero-alcohol / "nolo" beverages
Zero alcohol drinks have moved from reluctant compromise to positive engagement, as last week's reception to Sainsbury's 'Clean Vic' - the UK's first no and low alcohol pub - showed.
Consumption habits are shifting, with European sales of zero alcohol beverages projected to grow almost 10% per annum to 2023 to achieve a value of €9.3 billion. The UK is forecast to achieve the highest growth rate of 30% a year.
Zero alcohol drinks offer a major market opportunity, both in countries where they are already established and in regions where they have yet to become significant. This is especially the case in markets where alcohol consumption volumes have been static.
Zenith Global's European Zero Alcohol Drinks Report 2019 examines the current trends shaping the burgeoning zero alcohol drinks market, highlights future opportunities and provides insights on market trends across the FMCG spectrum.

An industry trend to watch - our latest research into the European zero alcohol drinks market estimates a 2018 market value of €5.9 billion, with value projected to rise to €9.3 billion by 2023.

Wednesday 29 May - European fermented drinks
Three new reports from Zenith Global find strikingly different characteristics and opportunities in the fermented drinks categories of kefir, kombucha and apple cider vinegar in Europe.
- Kefir is a long-established market in East Europe and now growing fast in West Europe as a probiotic dairy drink to benefit gut health and the immune system. Russia is the dominant country, with 67% of the 1,291 million litre market in 2018.
- Zenith Global values the kombucha European market at €66 million in 2018, mainly in West Europe, achieving growth of 35% in 2017 and 38% in 2018. Continuing volume growth of 35-40% a year is forecast up to 2023.
- The European market for ready to drink apple cider vinegar is far smaller at under €1 million, led by the United Kingdom and Denmark. 2018 volume growth was close to 50%, indicating this could become another fermented drink market segment of potential.

Tuesday 09 April 2019 - Contributing towards a more sustainable world
2.5 billion plastic coated coffee cups are used in the UK each year, less than 1 in 400 of which (0.25%) are recycled. Approximately 500,000 are littered every day, with the remaining 95.75% going to landfill sites - creating enough waste to stretch around the planet roughly five and a half times each year.
Contrary to belief, disposable cups are not widely recyclable in most local recycling centres due to their bonded plastic lining, and most compostable alternatives also end up in landfill as there aren't enough accessible facilities in the UK to compost them. By 2025, usage is anticipated to surpass 3.75 billion units, indicating an escalating threat to the environment.
As a food and beverage consultancy, we are delighted to see an increased commitment to #sustainability across the industry. However, we recognise that as consumers we must also play our part in contributing to #sustainable practices.
Zenith Global is proud to support Boston Tea Party, which in 2018 became the first coffee shop chain in the UK to ban single-use cups. Today, in partnership with Boston Tea Party, we have provided all of our staff members with re-usable Ecoffee Cups as we fortify our commitment to #NoExcuseForSingleUse. We hope you'll do your part too!
