UK alcohol sales: last orders called on happy hour

Although calling time on happy hour promotions should help alleviate the worrying prevalence of antisocial drinking in the UK, its potential impact on industry revenues is less easy to ascertain.

InBev: drinking distribution

InBev's call for the distribution of alcoholic drinks in retail outlets such as fast food chains, coffee bars or cinemas is not wholly unsurprising. While the idea is likely to provoke considerable debate over the UK's drinking culture, brewers would benefit from seeing their brands given greater exposure, while a more open attitude to alcohol in the UK could bring social benefits too.

Britons are continuing to abandon traditional sit down family meals in favor of snacks. Rigid and structured mealtimes have become more informal, fragmented and less important than ever. However, even though consumers are increasing their snack consumption, choosing 'pit-stop' dining and eating on-the-go, health concerns are still weighing on their minds.

'Experimental' Brits splash the cash on premium

This is reflected by the growth of the specialty products such as hand-made, origin specific food, drink and personal care products.

Convenience retail: alcohol on the forecourt equals money in the bank

Greene King: a purchase riddled with potential

Although Greene King's purchase of Ridley's strengthens its position as both a UK brewer and pub owner, the two activities may not prove complementary in the longer term. Indeed, achieving the brewing units' full growth potential will require investments that a company the size of Greene King can scarcely afford.

BakeMark: multiple megatrends make for spicy combination

BakeMark has launched Spicy Naans, a snack product that the company hopes will capitalize on the on-the-go and ethnic snack trends. With this move, BakeMark will be well placed to gain a share of the UK's $15 billion plus snack market. Furthermore, it underscores the need for new food offerings to be aligned with at least one current megatrend, especially in congested markets.
