Report Description

"Mintel forecasts the nutritional and performance drink category to continue modest growth into 2021. While the category benefits from consumers’ focus on a healthy lifestyle, a wide array of food and drink categories are stepping up the pressure by adding similar functional and health elements. The category may benefit by doubling down on the promise of function, convenience, and advanced nutrition and health benefits.
