Summary
Commercial beverages saw a small gain across West Europe for Q2-15, with both soft and alcoholic beverages growing. Greece's debt woes continued to dominate the news, and the Euro subsequently weakened. Low inflation across the region helped consumers overcome this however, encouraging higher spend on refreshment. Despite the region's economy remaining relatively stagnant, consumer confidence levels are reporting at the same, or better, in most of West Europe. Discount retailers continue to capitalise on the evolving consumer preferences since the financial crisis, with new stores opening across Europe. The main stories aside from economics have been an increasing 'war on sugar' spearheaded by Tesco committing to a 5% year on year reduction in sugar from its soft drinks range with brands such as Lucozade, Ribena and Coca-Cola responding accordingly. Finally several brands have committed to introducing more environmentally friendly packaging in light of intensifying criticism.

Key Findings
- Commercial beverages rise in quarter 2 with modest growth expected for the full year

- Impact of possible Grexit not as pronounced as some had feared

- Sugar debate gains momentum in many markets

- Discounters continue to raise their presence and invest
