Accelerated connectivity, a greater focus on health and well-being, increased sustainability concerns, the need to ‘be’ together… Pernod Ricard explores the evolving needs of consumers and the opportunities for the Group. The Covid‑19 crisis has accelerated already existing trends and with them a new world is emerging. Here are six major trends that are already shaping conviviality into the future.
Consumers are looking for healthier and more balanced lifestyles. Younger generations are ever more concerned about well-being and keen to share convivial moments and treat themselves while drinking moderately.
Expanding our portfolio in the low/no alcohol and low sugar and calorie categories. Communicating clearly on product contents. Educating our customers on moderate drinking and encouraging them to favour quality over quantity. Developing products with ingredients from sustainable agriculture.
How can we support more mindful alcohol consumption and adapt our portfolio to respond to these new trends?

Being transparent about origin and sourcing of ingredients, sustainable production and responsible distribution. Using packaging to reassure and educate about nutrition, alcohol content, sustainability and recyclability. Leading change with our suppliers and hospitality partners.

The Covid-19 crisis has increased the importance of coming together physically, with family, friends or neighbours. With the wearing of masks and physical distancing, people are more than ever longing for convivial moments and to return to their favourite venues, which are also having to adapt. New ways of socialising are appearing, that reinforce a sense of solidarity within one’s local community.
Post-pandemic, consumers will value real life interactions. Bars, events and brands will reinforce their role as social connectors to develop conviviality, community collaboration and meet lifestyle aspirations.
How do we support our trade and hospitality partners to ensure there will still be the spaces needed to connect people and provide convivial occasions?
