Consumers have become highly opinionated and well-educated about what they eat and drink. While millennials crave creativity, they also care about natural and organic products. Beverages in both premium and ultra-premium ranges are doing well in terms of sales, and when associated with a social cause, they turn out to be the preferred choice of consumers.

Business owners can also create products such as biodegradable packaging solutions or edible straws or cups.

Growth: Reports say that the global nonalcoholic beverage market will reach $1.60 trillion by 2025.
