Trends at Naturally Good 2024

At Unique, we keep our finger on the pulse of the latest trends and products locally and globally. It’s exciting for us to be part of the conversation at Naturally Good to affirm our insights and share them with our retailers and suppliers.

Protein

In major grocery, protein powder sales are up 44%, and protein and energy bars are up 18.7%.1,2 This was affirmed at Naturally Good with a huge demand for protein products.

At the Unique stand, we were joined by leading protein brands, including Macro Mike, Happy Way, CLIF, Switch Nutrition and Protein Supplies Australia. At the expo, we also launched the Nutry Nuts Protein Nut Butter Cups, a new arrival in Australia and exclusive to Unique.

From protein balls to energy bars, protein water, and protein powders, each brand offers a clean protein alternative for health-conscious consumers seeking a protein boost.

Hydration

Daily per capita consumption of electrolyte drinks in Australia has increased by 18.5% – the second-largest growth in the beverage category. Consumers are seeking healthier, natural alternatives to quench their thirst.

Switch Nutrition and Happy Way offer premium electrolyte solutions designed for hydrating and replenishing. At the Unique stand, we saw a great deal of hype around both of these products with retailers keen to get their hands on quality, natural alternatives for their customers.

Better-for-you

Compared to three years ago, Australians are buying more better-for-you products. Not limited to food, they’re seeking better-for-you alternatives across a range of categories, including cleaning products, beauty and personal care.

Once again, Unique brands were capturing retailer interest, including scientific green beauty brand Antipodes, chuu Nutrition ACV gummies, iconic Australian Buderim Ginger and better-for-you spices and sauces from Mingle.

The better-for-you trend has been building for a number of years and will only continue to do so alongside the rise of more health-conscious consumer attitudes.
