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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
