In a world characterised by political, economic, social and environmental turbulence, the firm believes that activism is the new the buzzword in drinks advertising.

“Our extensive research and analysis led us to coin the phrase “The Activeist Consumer” for a new generation which is incredibly aware of its collective consumer power and its ability to drive change at scale and pace,” said UK marketing boss Caspar McRae.

“With a very real level of expectation, brands and organisations will need to continuously innovate and adapt their experiences, ingredients and communications to ensure they meet the needs of this very discerning and powerful group.”
