Nestlé continues to excite Malaysians by growing its Dairy Free Drinks range which now includes NESCAFÉ Dairy Free Almond Latte in UHT 1L packs for ease of consumption at home. Introduced last year, the Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks range saw two of Nestlé’s iconic beverage brands, MILO and NESCAFÉ being given the dairy free twist, much to the delight of its consumers.
Made with plant-based ingredients, Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks do not contain ingredients sourced from animals. The milk is replaced with plant-based proteins such as almond, oat, soy and pea. They are suitable for all, including those with lactose intolerance.
Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks are low fat as well as they are cholesterol free. They are also Healthier Choice products, which means they are lower in sugar and fat compared to others within the same product category without the Healthier Choice Logo.
Consumer’s views of plant-based diet have evolved from what was once considered a niche or luxury to the norm of a varied, balanced lifestyle as part of the wider sustainability movement. The demand for plant-based products has increased in recent years, particularly during the pandemic, as more and more Malaysians continue to seek variety in their diets and discover new ways of enjoying food that is not only good for them but also for the planet.
“We launched the Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks range last year to meet the growing demand for plant-based products to overwhelming response. We are pleased that consumers appreciate the signature taste of MILO and NESCAFÉ in its dairy free version, which inspired us to continue innovating and making it easier for our consumers to embrace plant-based alternatives,” said April Wong, Business Executive Officer – Ready-to-Drink, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad.
She added, “With almond being ranked a top three most popular plant-based alternative, we are delighted to upsize NESCAFÉ Almond Latte into UHT 1L packs so that consumers may enjoy it at home more frequently as well as share the goodness with their family and loved ones.
Going one step further, Nestlé is committed to making its Dairy Free Drinks range accessible and affordable to Malaysians. “The Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks range is produced entirely in Malaysia. By bringing our global research and development expertise into our shores and capitalizing on our strong homegrown manufacturing capabilities, we are able to deliver the goodness of plant-based offerings that are tasty to our consumers at affordable prices,” she concluded.
The Nestlé Dairy Free Drinks range now comes in the following variants and formats: MILO Dairy Free Almond (UHT 1L and PET 225ml), NESCAFÉ Dairy Free Almond Latte (UHT 1L and PET 225ml) and NESCAFÉ Dairy Free Oat Latte (PET 225ml).
