Polarized Hot Drinks Market Costa Rica: Flavour-Innovation & Globalisation lead growth

Costa Rica is a famous paradise in Central America, mainly among scenery and escapade lovers. It has vast magnitude of national parks and private reserves that cover around 25% of its territory. It is located in a privileged region of the world that allows it to have a large concentration of animal species native to other countries in northern Central America and some from South America.

According to "Hot Drinks in Costa Rica", the demand for hot drinks reflects a polarised environment, where high-end indulgent products gained additional momentum among economically advantaged consumers, while value for money set the pace with many others who looked for lower-end alternatives. Within such a context specific brand loyalty lost relevance to more innovative proposals, capable of offering better unit prices or higher quality to buyers according to their budgets.

At maturity levels for these hot beverages, the main manufacturers continue to opt for increasing the differentiation of their products, using different types of quality certificates (in the case of fresh coffee varieties), and using flavour innovation and preparation convenience to promote more incipient categories such as instant coffee mixes and coffee pods. Same is the case for tea and other hot drinks, which tend to focus on the promotion of the functional properties of their ingredients to promote additional consumption amongst a broader range of local buyers from all socioeconomic groups.

In a globalised commercial context where international brands benefit from free trade agreement incentives to compete in Costa Rica, the emergence of imported products grew across most hot drinks including other hot drinks, tea, coffee pods and instant coffee, where their point-of-sale presence and pricing levels gained relevance. The only exception was fresh coffee, which remained dominated by local brands that continued to benefit from historic consumer preferences due to the strong coffee culture that prevails in Costa Rica. However, more local roasters and domestic coffee players continued to import cheaper coffee from neighbouring countries to decrease manufacturing costs and become more price-orientated.

While manufacturers in more mature categories such as fresh coffee focused on increasing the availability of value for money proposals, product specialisation influenced less developed categories, particularly in the case of instant coffee and tea. A premiumisation inclination developed among upper-income buyers (such as in the case of speciality teas and herbal infusion mixes), while flavour innovation and indulgence claims opened up new opportunities for incipient categories such as instant coffee mixes and higher-end powder cocoa drinks.

In spite of the uncertain macroeconomic environment that will probably continue to dictate mass consumption dynamics over the forecast period, it is expected that stable volume and value growth will be seen in hot drinks, moving in line with population growth and the rising demand for value-added proposals from a wider base of middle-income consumers. Therefore, it is expected that most categories will continue making efforts to improve their value for buyers, by increasing product quality or by expanding the offer of value-orientated proposals targeting lower-end consumers.

Mercure Hyderabad KCP Pledges Support Rally for Rivers

Conducts a bicycle ride to participate in the drive to protect our Rivers, RallyforRivers

Mercure Hyderabad KCP in association with Isha Foundation organized a bicycle Ride to pledge their support for “Rally for Rivers” campaign.  Employees from Mercure Hyderabad KCP along with Volunteers from Isha Foundation took part in the ride which was aimed at spreading awareness about the importance of rivers in our life and steps to be taken to save them. The Ride which was flagged off from Mercure Hyderabad KCP covered a distance of 10 Kms. The staff and volunteers participated with full enthusiasm and were seen enjoying the ride in the city.  

In the last few decades, rivers in India have undergone a drastic change due to population and development. Many of the rivers have already vanished. Rally for Rivers is a campaign launched by Isha Foundation to create awareness on protecting rivers. Ganga, Krishna, Narmada, Kaveri rivers are some of the focus rivers which are facing pollution and other environmental hazards. Isha Foundation has also collaborated with the Ministry of Environment and a lot of people from all walks of life have come forward to extend their support for the cause 

The campaign is to raise awareness that our rivers are depleting. 65% of our water needs are met by rivers, 2 out of 3 major Indian cities already deal with daily water shortage. As we all know many urban residents pay ten times the normal amount for a can of water. According to the recent study, each person’s average water requirement is 1.1 million liters a year. Today we have 75% less water per person than in 1947. 25% of India is turning to desert. By 2030 we will have only 50% of the water we need for our survival.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Dinesh Rai, General Manager, Mercure Hyderabad KCP said, “We are proud to associate with Isha Foundation and support their initiative ‘Rally for Rivers’.Rivers are the largest source of fresh water for everyone, with the depletion of rivers, we are moving to a crisis.

A terribly grown up East+West democracy: Germany’s far-right gains while Socially Left Greens win

A terribly grown up democracy, a perfectly shaken & stirred East West cocktail. Germany's democracy looks far ahead compared to rest of the west and the close to home developing ones.. Germany decides Markel in Bundestag fighting dangerous growth of hyper nationalism & populism? Germany has a proportional representation system and therefore often a coalition government, to counter its black history of chaos or dictatorship, a generally good and mature government. Some analysts call the win a personal victory for the 59 year old Merkel, who is now on track to overtake Margaret Thatcher as Europe's longest-serving female leader.

She has also bucked the European trend by becoming the only leader in the euro-zone, whether from left or right, to be re-elected since the snowballing of the euro crisis in 2010. Out of 17 countries in the euro, 12 governments have fallen, indicating how protected under Merkel's leadership Germans feel from the crisis. The scientist and pastor's daughter who grew up in communist East Germany appeared to her party faithful in Berlin just 45 minutes after the first exit polls were released, a clear indication of the confidence there was in the win.

After thanking her campaign team in a rare emotional moment, she then turned to her husband, the chemistry professor Joachim Sauer, who was standing among the crowd, and said: "And of course my husband, standing on the sidelines, who has had to put up with quite a lot." Sauer smiled shyly back at her.

The Germanic attitudes to work, and the importance they attach to completing tasks, hitting targets, and generally doing what they say they will do, may sound like boring qualities but they explain why they are more successful than nearly everyone else. In times of crisis, were the once great leaders of the nations are getting replaced (Blair, Berlusconi, Sarkozy) one after the other and even their followers are more than just unpopular or are already replaced (Cameron, Monti, Hollande), its really astonishing to see such a victory for a leader that has been in power for so long.

In some newly nationalism driven nations of 21st century, compromise and discussion is seen as "weakness" rather than a route to better policies. In my view there are clear similarities between the personal image and political strengths of hyper-bhakts and the so-called branded nationalists. They thrive on personal images of "strength" and policies of pure populism and nationalist assertion - "I am Great" and that's all.

Final results gave the CDU / CSU 311 seats, the Social Democrats 192, the Left party 64 and the Greens 63. The historical dimensions of the election were clear, with Merkel set to become just the third postwar chancellor to secure three election wins, after Adenauer and Helmut Kohl, who brought her into the party as an inexperienced and gauche 35-year-old.

North American Vertical Farming Market to Expand With Ameliorating Economic Conditions

Increasing urbanization and continuous rise in population have resulted in the growing demand for food around the globe. Governments all around the globe have started grasping the importance of food security for their respective nations. Due to limited arable land availability and land being an exhaustive resource, while the population is rising meteorically every moment, it is imperative that new sources of food production (that is new ways of farming) are devised.

This problem of increasing demand for food and limited land availability can be solved with the help of vertical farming, which acts as a substitute for traditional farming, produces more yields and removes dependency on land, pesticides, fertilizers and other chemicals. The need for vertical farming has become more imminent by growing concern over declining water levels and growing severity of drought problem. By producing 70% more crop despite using around 90% less water as compared to conventional farming, vertical farming has reiterated its importance. Independence from usage of chemicals to increase productivity due to vertical farming has also led to alleviating concerns of people regarding harmful effects of chemicals used and meeting increased demand for organic farm produce.

However, there are several market growth deterrents present as well, such as the technology used to set up a vertical farm is still in the developmental phase and there is high initial investment which is needed to set up even a single farm. This has restrained the market from growing at its full potential. Further, at present not all crops can be grown by this method and thus it is needed that investment is done in research and development in this market to find out innovative ways to grow all crops by vertical farming.

The report titled “North America Vertical Farming Market by Manufacturers, Countries, Type and Application, Forecast to 2022” focuses on the Vertical Farming Market in USA, Canada and Mexico. It predicts the trajectory of the market in the near future while identifying the key sectors that are driving the growth in the market. Studying the market from various angles by categorizing it on the basis of manufacturers, types, applications and countries, the report provides a detailed and layered outlook to the North American Vertical Farming market.

Some of the leading manufacturers in this market are namely- AeroFarms, Gotham Greens, Bright Farms, Vertical Harvest, Home Town Farms, Infinite Harvest, Lufa Farms, Beijing IEDA Protected Horticulture, Farmed Here, Garden Fresh Farms, Metro Farms, Green Sense Farms, Mirai, Green Spirit Farms, Indoor Harvest, and Sky Vegetables.

With the help of strong R&D established there, sound technical expertises, ample availability of capital through venture capitalists; North America provides ample opportunities for the Vertical Farming market to grow. North America, especially the United States, is already known to invest heavily in food production and agriculture to remain self-sufficient in food availability. The advancement in Vertical Farming has offered ample opportunities for the North American countries to shift their focus from traditional farming and divert their investments in the field of vertical farming in order to develop new and innovative ways to cultivate all kinds of crops. Whatever be the case, the necessity of food security is going to ensure that there is tremendous growth in Vertical Farming Market in the future years.
