Quarterly Beverage Tracker Fourth Quarter 2016: Serbia
Soft drinks saw a slightly positive performance in Q4-16. The soft drinks market gained share from the stable ACB categories. Poor performance for juice, nectars and iced/RTD tea drinks categories was driven by less shelf space and poor margins which reduced interest to invest among leading players. ACB was stable, as though beer suffered losses it was more than compensated by fast growing hot tea where additional volumes came from a much greater flu and cold season.
