Irish consumers show a desire for more sugar-free options for non-carbonated types of drinks. 34% of RoI consumers would be interested in trying more carbonated drinks containing natural sweeteners such as honey instead of sugar (Mintel, 2015). Taking the research results from the carbonated drinks, we can infer that consumers have an overall distaste to sugar and thus apply this research to our non-carbonated coffee drink.

The Irish population is also aging with the middle aged and older segment doubling by 2046, therefore we can position our product in a market that has significant potential for growth (Passport, 2016).

Product-related attributes associated with packaging, pricing and brand awareness, inter alia, tend to create and reinforce the relationship between the consumer and the brand (Suresh et al. 2012). Consumers respond to packaging based on a set of prejudices, learned reactions and individual preferences that help to catapult certain products to dominance in today’s dynamic markets (Aaker 2010). Certain shapes, colours, sizes and textures naturally influence consumers to respond positively, whilst others evoke negative reactions (Aaker 2011).
