Nestlé launches plant-based coffee lattes
Nestlé has launched three plant-based coffees under its Nescafé Gold brand. The almond, oat and coconut lattes are all certified by the Vegan Society.
The Nescafé Gold lattes are reportedly the world’s first plant-based soluble coffees mixes and are available exclusively from Tesco until February 2020, after which they will also be available in other retailers across the UK.
This latest coffee innovation from Nestlé will help meet the growing consumer demand for plant-based and non-dairy in the UK.
Neil Stephens, head of the Nescafé business in the UK and Ireland, said: “Our new Nescafé Gold frothy coffees bring the plant-based latte trend out of the coffee shop and into the home. The three delicious flavours, oat, almond and coconut are vegan friendly.
“Nescafé is the world’s favourite coffee, but we do not take our position for granted. We are quick to spot and embrace fast moving coffee trends and tastes in this highly competitive and innovative market. Our new plant based vegan latte mixes are the latest in a long list of innovations to bring new and exciting sensory experiences to our loyal Nescafé consumers.”
The plant-based lattes are being launched first in the UK and Ireland before being rolled out in several markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America and Oceania.
The new vegan lattes will complement the existing range of 17 Nescafé Gold frothy coffees.
