Nestlé has launched a range of Nescafé Gold lattes crafted with plant-based ingredients. The new Nescafé Gold non-dairy lattes are made with almond, oat and coconut, blended with Arabica beans. The Swiss-based multinational says these are the first-ever non-dairy soluble coffee lattes and certified by the Vegan Society as suitable for people following a vegan diet. Neil Stephens, Head of the Nescafé business in the UK and Ireland, says the range will help meet the growing consumer demand for plant-based and non-dairy products. “Our new premium Nescafé Gold frothy coffees bring the plant-based, non-dairy trend out of the coffee shop and into the home. The three delicious flavours, oat, almond and coconut are also vegan friendly as well as being a source of calcium. “[Nescafé is] 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 range will see an initial launch in the United Kingdom and Ireland before being rolled out in several markets across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Oceania. The Nescafé Gold lattes are available exclusively from British grocery chain Tesco until February 2020, after which they will also be available in other retailers across the UK and Ireland. “We are delighted to bring new coffee experiences with the launch of our premium Nescafé Gold non-dairy lattes,” says David Rennie, Head of Beverages Strategic Business Unit at Nestlé. “Our iconic Nescafé brand continues to lead and embrace new coffee trends with this innovation.” Follow Global Coffee Report on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter for up-to-date news and analysis of the global coffee industry.
