The Sector of Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic Beverages

In Colombia, the beverages sector is the most dynamic one with USD$29.4 million exported to 29 countries around the world. A significant contribution for the growth of the domestic industry.

Therefore, the sector of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages is one of the most important for the country. A market that also has a long history and has developed thanks to large companies that have spent years offering products that reflect the Colombian culture.

Products that reach buyers in different parts of the world, such as the United States with USD$6 million (20.4% share), Spain with USD$5.3 million (17.9%), Dominican Republic with USD$2.8 million (9.4%), Ecuador with USD$2.6 million (8.8%), and Panama with USD$2.5 million (8.4%).

Due to the high level of industrial concentration, differentiation in products, and the exploitation of economies of scale, national companies are innovating; and they have developed beverages with special features such as flavored beverages without sugar, without any sweeteners or preservatives.
