The high cost of organic products including soft drinks acts as a hindrance to the organic soft drinks markets. The cost of organic soft drinks is high when compared with that of conventional soft drinks. For example, the cost of Galvanina – Cola sparkling soda 350ml is $82.99 for 12 bottles, whereas the cost of 15 bottles of coco-cola 330ml cost around $27. Some of the factors which contribute to the high price of organic soft drinks are that these have no chemicals and need more labor, the gap between demand and supply, post-harvest handling cost, organic certification, cost of covering higher loss, organic food grows more slowly, all of which are a cost to the company that eventually leads to an increase in the product cost. Consequently, the high cost is causing a hindrance to the growth of the organic soft drinks market.

According to the survey of 230 natural brands by New Hope Network in January 2019, 65% of the respondents reckon to launch a new CBD product within a span of 1 to 2 years. Organic soft drink companies are coming up with new CBD drinks especially in the USA, owing to the USA farm bill in 2018 that supports the companies to sell CBD beverages. Sati organics is selling CBD infused soda in 3 flavors. There will be a rise in the CBD drinks in the forecast period.
