Improving a worldwide favorite

Carbonated soft drinks are still a popular go-to beverage in a market that is continuously reinventing itself. These beverages are evolving as a result of consumers searching for more natural and premium products that are lower in sugar, refreshing and have more authentic taste experiences.

These next generation CSDs are going to be big on flavor and additional health benefits.

How can we help? We can partner with you to identify areas of growth and helping you build your innovation pipeline with products that your consumers prefer and feel better about.

Naturally refreshing

flavored waters have exploded onto the scene becoming the go-to beverage and natural alternative to consumers looking for healthier solutions. With the strong healthy halo surrounding water, flavored water is helping to drive this category with its ever growing amount of flavors in both still and sparkling formats.

This category does take advantage of adding a touch of sweetness through natural high intensity sweeteners such as Stevia and with that there is an opportunity to leverage Kerry’s taste modulations portfolio which optimizes the overall taste by masking undesirable flavors associated with natural sweeteners and healthy ingredients like vitamins.

Juice – refreshed

Consumers expect fresh, authentic taste throughout the shelf life of their products. We understand that maintaining that 'fresh' taste poses a challenge since citrus flavor is affected by external factors such as light, temperature, packaging and acidity.

Kerry is reinventing the freshness factor of juice by using stable, authentic and natural citrus technology. In the process, we're also meeting increasing customer expectations for cleaner labels – without compromising on taste.

We offer:

  • clean-label taste solutions for 100% juices and nectars, including 100% FTNF and FTNJ restoration aromas (citrus, apple, pear)
  • citrus technology that provides consistent taste through the shelf life of the product
  • citrus add backs to restore the freshness and authenticity lost during processing

Fuelling active lifestyles

Today’s consumers are much more aware of the need to hydrate before, during and after exercise. Many consumers are now also seeking options that are lower in sugar and contain more functional ingredients to boost the ability of their bodies to recover from activities.

With these newer desires they also look for more natural flavors and ingredients that support their active lifestyles. 

The growth of social media means that consumers are well-informed about the negativity surrounding ingredients that are seen as artificial or bad for you, whether that information comes from credible sources or not.
