Look for the Next "Lemon"

Year 2021 saw lemon prevail tea drinks. At certain points of time lemon-based drinks fueled 400% growth by sold units and revenue. Lemon Republic, Ningji Tea, LINLEE ... challenger start-ups swiftly seized the opportunity and rode the waves of consumers craving for a new category. With some giants joining the game—Coca-Cola, Nongfu Spring, Xiang Piao Piao—the "second growth curve" is taking shape.

Grabbing a trend is grabbing an opportunity of building a new business. What is the next big thing? What could be the next "lemon" for the food and beverages sector?
