Starbucks coffee creamers
Nestlé and Starbucks coffee alliance set to unveil Starbucks creamers

Nestlé and Starbucks recently announced the launch of Starbucks creamers, allowing the Starbucks brand to enter the refrigerated creamer category for the first time, which is projected to top US$ 7.8 billion (Rs 53773 crore) by 2023 in the US.

The products were said to be developed by combining Starbucks’ well-loved flavors with Nestlé’s expertise and leadership in the creamer category to give consumers a new way to enjoy their Starbucks coffee at home.

Earlier this year, as a part of the global coffee alliance, Nestlé launched a range of 24 Starbucks products across various platforms. Nestlé and Starbucks claim to drive strong momentum and bring a premium coffee experience to consumers in the grocery aisle and via the Foodservice channels.

David Rennie, head of Beverages Strategic Business Unit, Nestlé SA said, “The global coffee alliance has allowed us to develop and launch new Starbucks products at an unprecedented speed. We are very pleased to expand the Starbucks brand into the creamer’s category less than a year after we closed the deal. We will continue to move fast to deliver great Starbucks coffee experiences to our consumers around the world.”

Starbucks creamers claim to offer a great taste and creamy texture that celebrates the coffee in the finished cup. The creamers will be available in three flavors such as caramel, white chocolate and cinnamon dolce. They are said to be inspired by customer-favorite handcrafted beverages served at Starbucks cafés such as Caramel Macchiato, White Chocolate Mocha and Cinnamon Dolce Latte. According to a press statement, these products will be available in the US groceries stores and at selected online retailers from August.

“We know that Starbucks customers are passionate about their coffee, and with Starbucks creamers, we are delighted to give them another way to enjoy their favorite Starbucks experience and flavors at home and outside our cafes,” said Duncan Moir, president – Global Channel Development at Starbucks.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!

  1. Why is the packaging looking like it is made of plastic? When dairy and cream products have traditionally been sold in cartons including gable top cartons, is it not possible to carry out this kind of brand extension without using plastic packaging?
