Growing Popularity for Functional RTD Coffee

Healthy eating and drinking is a major trend engaging the global population. RTD coffee is also one of the functional drinks that is available with proven health benefits.

Marked by health concerns, consumers are increasingly growing aware of the available functional drinks, thus driving the market for RTD coffee in the hot segment.
