Nestlé Launches Plant-Based Frothy Coffee In UK

1 Minutes Read

Nestlé has launched three plant-based frothy coffees in the UK.

The drinks, which fall under the Nescafé Gold brand, are all certified by The Vegan Society.

The range, which the company describes as the world’s first plant-based soluble coffee mixes, includes almond, oat, and coconut lattes. It will be available exclusively from Tesco until February 2020 before rolling out to other retailers.

Non-dairy

“Our new premium Nescafé Gold frothy coffees bring the plant-based, non –dairy trend out of the coffee shop and into the home,” Neil Stephens, Head of the Nescafé business in the UK and Ireland, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“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.”

Vegans and Nestlé

Although the products are free-from animal products, Nestlé is a brand many vegans boycott due to its chequered history when it comes to various business practices.

These include a major scandal in the 1970s, when many boycotted the conglomerate due to its aggressive promotion of its formula milk over breastmilk to women in developing countries.

Following an internal investigation, Nestlé admitted that forced labor practices were taking place in its supply chain. It has also faced accusations of child labor, unethical water mining, and deforestation among others.
