Nestlé has recently launched three plant-based frothy coffees under its iconic Nescafé Gold brand. The almond, oat and coconut lattes are all certified by the Vegan Society as suitable for people following a vegan diet and carry the sunflower trademark on the pack.

The premium Nescafé Gold lattes are said to be 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 and Ireland.

As per the press statement, blends of 100% Arabica coffees have been specially crafted to mix perfectly with the plant-based ingredients to create smooth creamy tasting lattes and each mug contains a source of calcium.

This latest frothy coffee innovation from Nestlé aims to help meet the growing consumer demand for plant-based and non-dairy products. Neil Stephens, head of the Nescafé business in the UK and Ireland, said, “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 flavors, oat, almond and coconut are also vegan-friendly as well as being a source of calcium. Nescafé is the world’s favorite 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.

Coffee is one of Nestlé’s high-growth categories. The company continues to invest to lead in the business, create more value for its brands and make a difference for consumers with innovative high-quality coffee products. Last month its premium Nescafé Azera brand launched roast and ground coffee bags in the UK and Ireland, which are the first coffee bags specially formulated to be enjoyed as a hot or cold brew, the press statement says.

Last year the Nescafé brand entered the growing ‘Origins’ arena with the launch of its Nescafé Gold Origins range, which allows consumers to explore authentic and exciting coffees originating from different parts of the world. The new vegan lattes will complement the existing range of 17 Nescafé Gold frothy coffees.

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 grown 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!
