The Changing Landscape for Energy

From an ingredient supply perspective, we have noticed more recent inquiries about our natural energy division than anything else. The changing landscape of energy drink consumers has a lot to do with this demand for our PurCaf® organic caffeine and other novel energy ingredients. The rate of inquiries is a response to consumers seeking cleaner, better-for-you, more natural ingredients on their product labels.

Natural beverages occupied more than 40% of total beverage dollar gains and organic beverages grew by 25% in dollar gains (source: SPINS 2016).

Today one in four U.S. consumers say they would be more comfortable drinking energy drinks or shots made with all-natural ingredients (source: Mintel, 2016).
