Health and wellness drive global product development in the consumer products industry. Fruits and Superfruits are at the forefront of this industry trend. Products from fruits such as pomegranate, blueberry, acai, and baobab, command a premium price for their reputed beneficial effects. There are several tropical fruits that hold potential interest for the soft drinks industry. Most of these are not available commercially, due to demand and supply issues. Soft drink manufacturers are unlikely to introduce new products unless they are certain that supplies of the raw material and derived ingredients are going to be available. At the same time, procurement functions cannot guarantee contracts until launching the product and ascertaining demand. In addition, the ingredient producer has little incentive to make the necessary investment to guarantee such supplies until assured that there will be a revenue guarantee.
