Sample Brandy Pro Trends

Each Brandy PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online brandy articles, videos and images. Examples:

Flatpack Food The beverage and edibles industry is given a single-serve, foldable overhaul Implications - Flatpacking, a.k.a RTA or KD, is a method conceived in the furniture industry that, because of its eco-friendliness, portability and efficiency, is leaking its way into other industries. Most recently, it has permeated the edibles industry by making foods and beverages easier to consume on the go. The idea lends to the consumer preference for efficiency in goods consumption and carting.

Curated Beverage Subscription services offer an easy introduction to alcoholic beverages Implications - Consumers without the time to educate themselves on the nuances of different beverages are turning to subscription services to streamline the process. This shift reveals two things; that consumers are interested in experimentation, but often don't have the time to carry it through themselves, and that they appreciate and rely on the advice of those whom they consider to be experts.

Display Escapism Retail moves further away from the mundane to satisfy wanderlust Implications - Post-recession, consumers who are reminded of what economic downturn looks like become preoccupied with life-changing experiences such as travel; however the credit crunch has also had an effect on the wallet, making travel less feasible. Satiating this unfulfilled need, companies are incorporating travel-inspired elements into retail displays.

Cross-Confection Dessert flavoring crosses food forms and preconceived flavors Implications - A subsection of flavor reversal, cross-confection is a pattern based in permissible indulgence. Previously, sweets were consumed in a more typically heavy format. Consumers looking to merge indulgence with smaller portions, as well as the novel experience all foodies crave, can satiate all needs with products flavored like classic confections.

Aerial Shipping Demand for flexible shipping solutions sees drone technology become utilized Implications - The surge of online shoppers has helped to reinvigorate the shipping industry, which is now turning to drone technology for a quick, efficient method to ship goods on a domestic -- and in some cases -- international level. This economical method expands traditional boundaries for shipping and enables brands to become more self-sufficient.

Brand Deconstruction Organizations appear more approachable by reverting to simplicity Implications - It's not uncommon for a brand to reinvent itself, however in recent times, it seems most rebranding initiatives opt for something less flashy and more approachable. This reversion to simplicity may be counter-intuitive in a time when brands are battling for consumers' attention through various channels. However, this is where the appeal lies: simplicity is now uncommon and a way to separate oneself from the crowd.

Seasonal Customization Consumers opt for DIY techniques to add personal touches to holiday decor Implications - Moving away from the typical aesthetics found in store-bought products, consumers are turning to DIY activities to add individuality to holiday decor. Making Christmas trees and gift wrapping using unexpected materials, consumers are heightening seasonal experiences with greater sentimental features. This reflects a need to maintain tradition in a more creative and personalized manner.

Experimental Caffeine Coffee is brewed with unexpected ingredients to heighten taste buds Implications - Moving beyond the energy benefits of caffeinated products, brands are turning to unexpected flavor enhancements for heightened appeal.
