Why is Demand for 3-in-1 Beverage Rising Steadily across the World?

“Increasing Consumption of Coffee & Tea to Elevate sales of 3-in-1 Beverages”

Traditional coffee and tea are the most enjoyed beverages among users across regions. With technological advancements introduced in the market, manufacturers are bringing these traditional drinks to consumers at their fingertips along with some additional features, namely, ready-to-go drinks (3-in-1) with simple packaging (sachets).

Changing lifestyles along with increased consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea, malted drinks, etc., are being witnessed due to the endless styles and varieties provided by manufacturers in their products. Therefore, in this fast-moving world, 3-in-1 beverages are gaining the high attention of consumers, mainly because they save time during preparation.

“Longer Shelf life of 3-in-1 Beverages”

In reality, 3-in-1 beverages don’t expire since they are devoid of any moisture content. If stored properly, preventing them from exposure to moisture, 3-in-1 beverages can be consumed within 12 to 18 months after they are manufactured. This enables consumers to make beverages at home or offices within no time without the fear of expiry.

  • For instance, Nestle manufactures 3-in-1 cereal drinks under the brand name Nestum, which have a shelf life of up to 12 months.

This characteristic has helped 3-in-beverages gain popularity among consumers, thereby having a positive impact on market growth.
