Amatil X: On the Lookout for the Future

Coca-Cola Amatil has announced the launch of Amatil X, a new platform for emerging possibilities to power growth beyond Coca-Cola Amatil’s core business.

The new venture will support the development of concepts, start-ups and early-stage businesses that anticipate and address customer needs, and is a way for Coca-Cola Amatil to find new avenues of growth. Group managing director Alison Watkins says the world of customers is changing quickly, with increasing expectations driven by technology. “While remaining focused on our core is critical, we need to find new avenues of growth. We want to continue to challenge ourselves to provide our customers with ‘Only at Amatil’ experiences,” she says. At the core is AX Ventures, a multi-million dollar corporate venturing programme that has been set up to invest in future revenue growth opportunities outside of Amatil’s current business – and beyond innovation in beverages which sit within the core business. Investment opportunities will be identified via two avenues:

  • Xcelerate – a corporate accelerator programme to operate in New Zealand and Australia powered by leading start-up accelerator BlueChilli. Xcelerate will seek applications from entrepreneurs and early-stage companies, gaining first-hand access to emerging technologies and trends; building a pipeline of investible businesses; and supporting the overall start-up ecosystem in New Zealand and Australia. Applications for Xcelerate opened last month.
  • Xponential – an employee venturing programme. Xponential will leverage Amatil’s existing innovation programmes and other initiatives to identify internal opportunities for AX Ventures to invest.

Importantly, the programmes within AmatilX are not open to proposals for new beverages, and do not compete with existing innovation pipelines provided by brand partners including The Coca-Cola Company, Watkins says. Instead, there are three broad themes:

  • Millions  of moments of impact: concepts for creating a sustainable future
  • One step ahead: concepts for redefining the customer experience; and
  • Route to me: concepts for exploring alternative ways of getting customers what they want, when and where they want it.

The programmes will leverage Coca-Cola Amatil’s ability to rapidly test and validate relevant ideas and prototype solutions which improve the customer experience or create potential revenue streams.

At the end of the programme, AX Ventures will review participants for further investment. “Our team has been examining rapidly evolving companies across various sectors in Australia and overseas for the past six months,” Watkins says. “The result is Amatil X. Our aspiration is for Amatil X to set the benchmark for how to bridge the gap between large established corporations and the agility and innovation of start-up businesses, so that we leverage entrepreneurs to help fuel our growth agenda. We are investing today for tomorrow’s growth. We want the start-up community to know we’re open for business and supporting both the start-up community ecosystem, and the New Zealand and Australian economies.” www.ccamatil.com

The Rise Of The Millennial

millennialsIf your Millennial offspring have stayed living at home pleading poverty, yet waste what ‘little’ they have on copious takeaway flat whites and smashed avocado, are you forgiven for being miffed? Kiwi consumer spending specialist Marketview managing director Stephen Bridle says yeah, nuh, maybe.

Millennial consumers in New Zealand have been labelled as big spenders, wasting their money on smashed avocado and takeaway coffee. And there’s more than a bit of truth to the epitaph.

In a report analysing spending behaviour by consumers aged 25-29, Marketview found that over the past eight years, these consumers have increased their spending by 56%, outstripping their growth in population.

Much of Millennial’s spending growth is due to a growing interest in eating out… whether it be cafes, restaurants, bars or fast food, Millennials really are dining out much more than previous generations.

With their preoccupation with convenience, takeaways are an increasingly popular purchase for this age group – our spending figures revealed that in 2017, Millennials spent more on takeaways than they did at clothing, footwear, health, beauty, pharmacy and cosmetic stores combined.

We also identified that Millennials have a strong preference for online shopping, with spending growth for nearly all online categories outstripping their bricks and mortar equivalents.

Figures show that since 2009, these consumers have more than tripled the amount they spend online, now allocating 10% of their spending budgets to online purchases. Popular online categories for Millennials are fashion, accommodation and, increasingly, groceries and food, encouraged by convenience and growing availability.

While many industries both on and offline are benefitting from Millennial money, figures from Marketview identified an emerging trend with potential to impact the wider retail landscape… younger consumers are increasingly spending their money outside the central cities.

In the past eight years, spending by Millennials in non-metro areas increased by more than 50%, while the CBDs of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch combined only saw a 14% increase in spending from these consumers.

As young people increasingly turn to online options for their everyday shopping needs, the concept of the CBD and ‘High Street’ is becoming somewhat redundant, at least to Millennials. As they no longer need to head out to the shops in the city every weekend, Millennials are breathing life back into the ‘local village’, bringing business back to their communities as they go out for coffee, drinks and dinner in their local neighbourhoods – a phenomenon we are only seeing increase as this group grows.

Millennials are not to be underestimated in their spending power and ability to alter the retail environment. Retailers need to pay attention to the preferences and spending patterns of this generation if they want to profit from what is a highly valuable group of consumers, and not be left behind.

Wellington-based Marketview (https://marketview.co.nz/) analyses consumer spending patterns from reliable sources across all categories, enabling a deeper understanding of how consumers behave and helping clients across a range of industries to understand what is driving their sales growth or decline.
