The report finds the aggregated sales value of these categories grew by a meager 4% versus one year ago. Interestingly, while strong growth was seen in soy-based drinks (31%), drinkable yogurts (19%) and eggs (16%), a few categories showed declines. Of the 24 fastest-growing categories, however, 75% of them are related to diet and health.
As such, ACNielsen's study has identified three key trends common around the globe: a continued focus on health, the need for convenience and the growing impact of private label.
