When it comes to their health, U.S. consumers have their share of concerns. According to Bellevue, Wash.-based The Hartman Group’s “Health and Wellness 2015” report, on average consumers are actively treating 3.4 health conditions and proactively preventing 6.2 health conditions. The No. 1 health condition — weight management — has 58 percent of consumers treating the condition and 26 percent preventing it, the report notes.
This is just one of the factors driving the demand for high-quality, healthy food and beverages, the market research firm notes. However, as more beverage manufacturers look to satiate these consumer trends, they are turning to experts in the contract packaging and manufacturing industry to help provide solutions.
