As the temperature is getting higher in Yangon, the consumption of cold drinks has surged and some cold beverage shops report that sales become almost double compared to previous months, according to shops selling cold beverages.
The temperature has begun rising in Myanmar since last month, and the population who take cold drinks has increased now and the sales of cold drink shops have gone up nearly double recently.
“I don’t want to have hot foods because the weather is too hot. When I eat something, I have cold drink too,” said a young man who works at a private company.
There are dine-in customers and takeaways too.
“We sell various kinds of juices, such as strawberry juice, avocado juice, pineapple juice, papaya juice, lime juice, watermelon juice, orange juce and carrot juice, at our shop. Different kinds of cold drinks are also available. Now the weather is extremely hot, many people prefer cold foods rather than warm foods. This is the season when all kinds of cold beverages are sold well,” said a cold beverages seller in Yangon.
Currently, the price of ice cubes per bag (containing 10 pyi) is K2,500. Price of fruit juices ranges from K2,000 to K3,000 while instant cold drink bottle starts from at least K800.
“A big juice bottle is priced about K4,700 per one, and depending on it, cold beverage shops have to price their selling items. Recently, there are more customers who take fruit juices,” said Daw Myint, owner of Sedanar cold beverages shop in Bago. At present, orders for cold drinks online have climbed up, according to delivery services in Tamway township. — MT/ZS
