How can the wave of dividends be captured by the rise of the ＂sugar-free＂ and ＂high-fiber＂ beverage market?

The successful sales strategy and highlights the health, is generally welcomed when it goes on the market. In Japan, the United States and other markets, consumer demand is growing 10% every year, also gradually emerging a boom in "high-fiber" beverages in the market.

The "Healthy China Action (2019-2030)" proposes to speed up the revision of the general principles of prepackaged food nutrition labeling, encourage companies to make claims of "low sugar" or "sugar free", and actively promote the use of "package positive labeling" information on food packaging , To help consumers choose healthy food.
