Fruit-filled food products are in great demand

There is no denying that fruit is having its day in the sun at the moment as more consumers are demanding healthier options when buying food, and are actively seeking out food products with high fruit content for their health and immune-boosting properties.

The demand for 'fruit-filled everything' from consumers is creeping into all sectors of the food and drink industry, even with popular ready to drink milkshake brands seeing sales of fruit-flavoured milkshakes outperforming best-selling flavours such as chocolate and vanilla.

Sales of immune-boosting shot drinks that are packed with fruit and herbs such as ginger, echinacea and turmeric are going through the roof too, so if you were looking to get in on this market, David Berryman Ltd. can also help you with sourcing the best quality fresh fruit juices, juice concentrates and fruit purees you need to develop your fruit-based shot-drinks range.

The bakery sector is also seeing sales skyrocket for immune-boosting fruit bars that contain a tasty combination of cereals and fruit that people can carry with them wherever they go and pull out of their handbag or pocket for a healthy snack when they need it.

Sales of fruit-filled bars, cakes and pastries are increasing while sales of traditional chocolate bars and biscuits are declining as people are seeking out healthier snacks that contain fruit.

Even meal replacement drinks are getting an overhaul. Traditionally, these drinks are made from a blend of oats, nuts, fruit and veg, but consumers are now asking the manufacturers for more fruit-based drink sachets for the extra vitamin and mineral boost.

Sports drink sales boost

With a population now with an increased focus on their health, more people than ever have been taking up regular exercise, and along with it, a demand for sports drinks has risen in line. However, what we are seeing is that almost a third of people (29%) are consuming more functional foods and beverages in 2020 than in previous years.

The increased demand for healthy sports drinks that contain more fruit and less added sugar is thought to be in response to heightened fears around people's health and wellness in the current climate.

Now what people are reaching for pre and post-workout are sports drinks that offer immune-boosting benefits. The sports drinks industry is seeing a spike in demand for drinks that contain immune-boosting natural ingredients, such as fruits with added herbs and spices such as turmeric, ginger and apple cider vinegar.

A consumer report from The Hartman Group found that consumers were choosing food and drinks that contained ingredients for immunity and general prevention with more natural products being used in the formulation rather than being overloaded with sugar.

High quality prepared fruit suppliers

With a predicted long-term trajectory of immune-boosting food and drinks as an area of interest for consumers, food and drink manufacturers need to rely on a source of ingredients for their products that will meet with their customer's high expectations.
