Coronavirus impact on sales - update
After the stockpiling, what has happened since?
Beverage Digest has kept us up to date with sales in the US retail sector for a range of beverages.
The growth in powdered milk and orange juice has continued.
Carbonated soft drinks, packaged coffee and cow’s milk appear to be benefiting from extra time being spent at home.
Energy drinks, sports drinks and water have fallen back and may return to trend once high household stocks have been depleted.
Unfortunately, the corresponding figures for away from home sales would present an altogether gloomier picture.
