Canadians are drinking less juice than they used to. Different factors contribute to this challenging growth environment, such as an aging population in Canada and concerns around sugar. Based on predicted category trends juice companies will need to maintain or grow their share of a shrinking pie to achieve growth and will need to respond nimbly to category trends and evolving areas of consumer demand.
