Black consumers are estimated to spend $10.9 billion dollars on non-alcoholic beverages in 2017, a 2.3% increase vs 2016. Carbonated beverages rank first in sales among Black households, even while these consumers switch to healthier as well as naturally sweet beverages to quench their thirst and please their palate. Black consumers like to see a wide breadth of new and innovative beverages where they usually shop, and are willing to try them, if they are familiar with the brand and product flavors. Black consumers are a prime prospect to showcase natural flavors and sweeteners that taste just as good, but are healthier options for them and their families to drink.
