"Netherlands Food & Drink Report Q1 2015" now available at Fast Market Research

The Dutch economy will grow just above the eurozone average over 2015 and 2016. However, high levels of household debt combined with persistently weak external demand will prevent the economy reaching escape velocity. While we believe that the worst is over for the Dutch consumer, we do not envisage a significant spike in household spending any time soon. With household debt remaining extremely high this will cap disposable income and private consumption growth in the near and longer term. Consequently, we do not expect much dynamism in the country's food and drink market in the short term, with discounted goods remaining popular amid high unemployment and rising inflation.

Heineken Shifts Focus to Lesser Known Brands : In November 2014 it was announced that Dutch-based brewer Heineken is looking to expand some of its lesser-known brands globally, while also launching new varieties in domestic markets. The effort is a bid to boost the company's growth and profit, in response to struggling sales in Europe and the US. Heineken first launched its innovation strategy in 2010, which has aimed to increase sales of products in the market for less than three years from 2.6% of total sales to 6% by 2020.
