Industry Analysis & Industry Trends
The Juice and Smoothie Bars industry has performed well over the past decade, driven by the emphatic embrace of the health and wellbeing movement in Australia.
Industry operators enjoyed dramatic growth in demand for their products as increased awareness of unhealthy eating and its relation to obesity and heart disease resulted in consumers making consumption choices based on health and nutritional factors.
The industry's dominant player, Boost Juice, entered the market in 2000 and has since made fruit and smoothie bars a staple of shopping malls, high streets and densely populated urban centres around the country. Juices and smoothies were shot into the mainstream, with many consumers looking to them as viable and healthy alternatives to fast foods or as meal replacements.
