Quench your thirst while counting your profits

The South African Juice Industry Landscape Report 2022 forecasted that the South African Juice industry will grow at a CAGR of 6.30%. In 2021 the forecast was R13 437 Million, with 2026 expected to be R18 052 Million – which proves that this is a thriving industry.

One thing that the report highlighted is the change in consumer trends, with them being more mindful and conscious of what they consume as well as the environmental impact the brands have. This shift has created a need for innovative and healthier options that don’t compromise on taste, quality, and pricing.

However, the upside is that it has created room for new players to enter this competitive industry. With a 3.4% growth year-on-year growth in South Africa, this is a favorable market for entrepreneurs to explore and offer products that meet consumer demands.

Fortunately, platforms such as Ourlives Marketplace, feature locally-made soft drinks & juices brands that are just as good as the big brands.
