Identifying new opportunities in the fast-growing sports nutrition category

Formulating for success in sports nutrition

With positive lifestyle associations that appeal to health-aware consumers, sports nutrition is well positioned to cross over successfully into more mainstream food and beverage categories.

Category boundaries are blurring. This is creating new opportunities as well as new challenges in meeting the demand for better tasting sports drinks, as consumers expect the same great eating and drinking experience in sports nutrition as they do in wider food and beverage products.
