Innova Market Insights has identified 10 key trends to impact the food and beverage market through 2012 and beyond. The top trends relate to purity, authenticity, and sustainability, as consumers continue to look for products with added value, despite the ongoing economic uncertainty.
With incredible growth rates off a low base in the early 2000s, the energy drink industry has slowed down its pace over the five years to 2011.
