Gone are the days of a corner water cooler and stale coffee burning in a pot all day at work…thankfully! Today’s workforce enjoys beverage selections that rival choices at the trendiest supermarkets.
At GlobalConnect®, we share trends we see within the industry so you can apply them in your breakroom. Below, check out four trends we’re seeing in office beverage preferences this year.
Coffee will always be a morning staple, but cold brews have now claimed a spot as an all-day favorite.
Ready-to-drink coffees have quickly become a leader in at-work refreshment. Choices frequently include black, nitro, or flavored and attributes like low-sugar, gluten-free, sugar-free, and keto.
Water choices are exploding, and do more than just hydrate! Functional waters include still or sparkling waters and herb-infused waters, plus additives like minerals, vitamins, herbs, acids, and fruits.
From energy drinks to sparkling waters, and sodas we’re seeing mashups of flavors and enhancements. Energy drink options are now sporting higher electrolytes and hydration boosters as well as flavor combinations. Sparkling waters are sporting additives such as natural caffeine from tea and juice flavors.
|No sugar and reduced sugar beverages|
Almost all manufacturers now provide either reduced sugar or no sugar options for their most popular products. Among the most notable are options for existing popular drinks by top brands such as Red Bull (Red Bull Sugar-Free), Dr. Pepper (Dr. Pepper Zero Sugar), and Monster Energy (Monster Energy Zero).
