Summary Sales of sugary drinks are banned at schools as of 1 January 2016. This negatively impacted on the consumption volumes of drinks like carbonates, still drinks and energy drinks. The price of dairy products continues to go down so consumption volumes gone up as more Latvians can afford to purchase dairy drinks. The excise duty on alcoholic drinks has increased for the second time since August 2015. Beer and FABs were affected the most and experienced big declines. Healthy living is becoming a dominant trend. As a result, more consumers have switched from consuming sugary drinks, like carbonates, to healthier products such as packaged water, sports drinks and enhanced water. Key Findings -Latvian consumers are becoming more active and health-conscious which led to the increase in consumption of packaged water as it is a healthy alternative to other soft drinks. -Q1-16's consumption volume of alcoholic drinks fell as compared to Q1-15 due to the big declines in FABs and beer consumptions. Ciders and wine were able to gain positive sales results. -The consumption volume growth was driven by declining prices of dairy products. The dairy market still has not stabilized after the Russia milk embargo so the price of dairy products continues to fall. -During Q1-16, the hot beverages category grew positively when compared to Q1-15. Hot coffee also grew while hot tea category showed very similar results to those of Q1-15.
