Spritzd Sales Increase Case Study

Spritzd manages to increase sales by 126% with shelf promotion

The younger generations are focusing more on their health and that’s why they are no longer drinking as much alcohol as the older generations. However, there are a few low-alcohol beverages that even Millennials and Gen Z are enjoying. Hard seltzer, cider, and other ready-to-drink beverages like Spritz are great options. 

In this case study, you will find out how AB InBev managed to increase sales for its Spritzd products. Before we dig deeper into the case study, let’s take a brief look at some stats regarding this product’s market.
