The Future Is Functional
In 2022, Non-Alc spirits are more mainstream than ever, and following six years of innovation, distinct zero proof categories have emerged that offer distinct drinks occasions. In this session, we’ll take a closer look at these emerging categories, examine how the consumer approach to Non-Alc has evolved (from the notion of drinks ‘without’ alcohol to drinks ‘with’ added flavor and ingredient benefits) and hear firsthand from entrepreneurs within the functional drinks as we explore whether the future of Non-Alc innovation lies within this space.
