What is generally an age group of people who drink fruit juices in Poland? Do you think it is mostly male or female?

mixed carrot fruit juices are served to little children

then there are younger and mid-age generation who are used to this kind of stuff
(and not into colas, sodas and other) but they are minority

there has been a brand in pure fruit bottled juices - some exotic mixtures - namely Frugo - the stuff was quite good but at the same time a bit too expensive I guess and the brand has fallen out of use - must be the sales weren't that good - don't know the exact fate of the makers

anyway I think that juice making buisness in Poland is pretty competitive - though the quality of some major brands in recent year has fallen dramatically (maybe it is the competition pressure and people buying the cheaper stuff rather the better - for whatever reasons) - so maybe it is a field to explore - but it sort of would have to be somewhat elitist product that would catch on with not so many - so the problem is the business scale - but you see Polish youth (many of them/especially educated) are quite susceptible to mind forming when you know how to address them (must be self-worth deficit)

then juices are bought for hospital patients as well so they have something to drink at hand - but it is a minor thing in sales I guess

older generations usually don't buy that stuff (our grandmas used to make fruit juices on their own and many people still do now - my mom does)

Thank you so much for the answers. After reading several answers in different sources we started concentrating on "Night drink" idea. Do you think it is mostly females or males, who mix alcohol, beer and juices? Or both?

I think that fruit juices will be drunk more and more by the younger generation. Coca-Cola have Cappy here and I've just discovered that Pepsi have Toma. These add to an already impressive list of fruit juice drunk by young/active people.

Mostly females mix.

Beetroot as juice? Dude, what gives? I know cranberry is for women with cystitis but does beetroot improve virility? It's likely good for blood circulation.

I'll try it out. Barszcz czerwony is pretty tasty so I'll just be changing salt for sugar :)

Hortex make some really good stuff. They go beyond Poland, I saw them in one of the Baltic countries too.

Polish kids seem more open to trying carrot juice and healthy drinks in general. Kubus is very popular, the carrot and raspberry flavour aint too bad.

I grew up on carrot juice, rarely got sick, very high in magnesium and anti cancerous. Very healthy. Best made from organic carrots.

Two brands come to my mind first. Polish brands of course. I like them both.
Tymbark and Hortex.

4 companies hold most of this market in Poland: Maspex, Hortex, Agros and Sokpol. You may find their websites and check the brands there.
