Analysis of the juice market in Ukraine. Production and consumption from the marketing agency FINE Development Company: AI, Blockchain, IoT, Kyiv, Lviv, Odessa, Dnipro, Vinnitsa, Ukraine

 

The fruit juice market is an important segment of fruit production in Ukraine. In the early 1990s, the Ukrainian fruit juice and beverage market was poorly developed and had a limited range of products compared to the current supply. There were expensive juices on the market, mostly imported, mostly of low quality.

At that time, Ukrainian consumers mainly consumed compotes and home-made drinks. In subsequent years, the juice market developed dynamically thanks to the improvement of production technology and expansion of the range, popularization of convenient cardboard packaging, development of marketing and branding skills of companies, and, above all, as a result of changes in the consumption structure and an increase in the number of processed fruits and vegetables, especially juices, nectars ...

 

Currently, the juice market in Ukraine is a mature market. The consumer has at his disposal a large selection of juices, nectars and drinks, recently fresh (pasteurized and unpasteurized) juices have become more and more popular.

 

In addition to fruit juices and fruit nectars, various types of beverages are available on the market for which no specific requirements or quality definitions are specified. Thus, the fruit drink or fruit and vegetable drink can be any liquid food product other than juice or nectar.

 

In Ukraine, consumers are increasingly interested in the nutritional value and ecological origin of food products, especially fruits and vegetables.

Vegetables and fruits are low-energy foods with high nutritional value. They are a very good source of fiber, vitamins, minerals, as well as organic acids and other substances with biological effects. Low energy value of vegetables and fruits in the range of 25-60 kcal / 100 g and high fiber content make them especially important in the diet of every person. Adequate intake of fruits and vegetables is also important for the prevention and treatment of cancers, especially those found in the digestive tract.
