We’ve written in the past about the technology we have to offer the beverage industry. We’ve also talked a bit about what’s changing in the beverage industry of the future. Those future changes just got quite a surprise when researchers uncovered the fact that bottled water is outselling soda for the first time in decades.
It is thought the changes come from two major shifts in American thinking. First, many are switching from carbonated beverages due to the increased focus on health and the obesity crisis in the United States. That shift has been growing, quite expectedly, over the past few years. The other change, though, is something a bit less positive, the terrifying focus on crumbling municipal water infrastructures that have led to problems like lead contamination and big scandals in places like Flint, Michigan, Washington D.C., and Newark, New Jersey. It is thought that more than $384 billion in improvements will be needed to maintain the country’s water infrastructure in upcoming years.
Fortunately, this shift hasn’t hurt many soda makers, because most of them are producing both bottled water and soda. Even smaller names are often selling both to help cash in on the two different markets. Fortunately, those companies are cashing in because people feel so unsafe about drinking water today.
