Quarterly Beverage Tracker First Quarter 2016: Norway; Comprehensive Quarterly Analysis of Year on Year Performance for All Commercial Beverages

Published: May 2016
No. of Pages: 22


Earlier Easter than usual this year, falling in Q1-16 compared with Q2-16, giving a welcome boost to carbonated beverages, sports and energy drinks. Energy drinks was the category winner in terms of growth with a very strong double digit growth although sports drinks also delivered a modest growth. The dairy category saw modest growth for flavoured milk but white milk continued to edge back as did drinking yoghurts. Traditional fermented milk showed modest growth as did soymilk and grain, nut, rice and seed milk alternatives. Beer and FABs showed good growth boosted by the Easter festive season but wine, spirits and fortified wine saw falling consumption.

Key Findings

  • Consumption of packaged water fell in Q1-16 due to the cold winter weather at the beginning of the quarter in spite of the early Easter that bolstered other categories.
  • Higher prices caused by excise duty increases are also dampening demand in both the on-premise and off-premise consumption of spirits.
  • White milk consumption was fairly flat with a drop in Q1-16, with the winter weather helping to prevent a bigger drop in consumption.
  • Specialty hot tea continues to show the most growth within the hot tea category as it appeals to health conscious consumers.
