Consumer purchasing habits saw a drastic shift as neighbourhood stores and supermarkets were shut down during 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. Such closures and heightened precautions to avoid contact pushed consumers towards shopping online for groceries and essential items.
As the situation has stabilised, the Australian Beverages Council has been focusing on the non-alcoholic drinks industry's post-COVID-19 recovery, which includes enforcing container deposit schemes across the country, incentivising key groups to meet sustainability goals, expanding recycling infrastructure, reforming the tax system, simplifying the industrial relations system and improving energy policy.
