Nestlé Launches Vegan Coffee Mixes In The UK And Ireland
Food giant Nestlé has launched a new range of dairy-free Nescafé Gold lattes, developed from plant-based ingredients, in the UK and Ireland.
The coffee mix range, available in three variants, combines Arabica coffee beans with almond, oats, and coconut to create smooth and creamy coffees.
The food giant has claimed that it is the world's first-ever plant-based coffee mix.
The range has been certified by the Vegan Society as being suitable for people following a vegan diet, Nestlé said.
'Fast-Moving Coffee Trends'
Head of the Nescafé business in the UK and Ireland, Neil Stephens, said, "Our new premium Nescafé Gold frothy coffees bring the plant-based latte trend out of the coffee shop and into the home.
"We are quick to spot and embrace fast-moving coffee trends and tastes in this highly competitive and innovative market," he added.
The range will be exclusively available in Tesco until February 2020, after which it will be sold by other retailers.
Nestlé also plans to launch the product in several markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania.
