Re: [sharechat] Competition for FRU ?

  There is more competition as you would expect from a growing
market
 
 The market for functional beverages — drinks
 that promise health benefits beyond their inherent
 nutritional value — has nearly doubled in the last
 four years, from $2.68 billion in 1997 to $4.7 billion
 in 2000, according to Frost & Sullivan, a market
 research firm. Sales of functional foods have followed
 suit, rising from $11.91 billion in 1995 to $23.4 billion
 last year. Both categories are expected to grow by
 at least 20 percent this year, according to Frost,
offering a serious lift to a food industry that has been
 a bit listless of late.
