Quarterly Beverage Tracker Fourth Quarter 2016: France
In France, the consistently excellent performances for packaged water, flavored water and iced/RTD tea drinks in Q4-16 reflect the consumer demand for products that have natural, healthy and low-calorie attributes. Private Label continued to decline in all soft drinks categories except for energy drinks where volumes were flat compared to Q4-15. Energy drinks continued to perform well, which has been driven by innovation and price promotions.

Our Q4 special focus update on the latest trends in functional and flavored waters
Packaged water grew in Q4-16 was mainly driven by the rather mild and sunny weather in December as well as the continuing price promotions.
The negative media exposure and consequent unfavorable perception towards carbonated drinks led the category to its decline in Q4-16.
Flavored water remains very popular as consumer preference is to drink natural soft drinks with little/no sugar content, hence resulting in massive growth in the category.
