Nestle debuts a spin-off version of two of their classic drinks, Milo & Nescafe with a dairy-free twist as a part of their new range of dairy-free drinks. In favor of fans who are lactose intolerant and to those who are looking for plant or dairy-free based options, they too can now enjoy Malaysia’s beloved drinks.
Nestle’s newly launched dairy-free drinks are made with plant-based ingredients and contain no animal-sourced ingredients. The milky goodness is replaced with plant-based proteins such as soy, almond, pea, and oat. Plant-based proteins make a great alternative and are a good source of healthy fats, dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins; these proteins are also lower in saturated fat and cholesterol-free.
“We are excited to unveil our very first all-new dairy-free drinks range in Malaysia to complement our product innovation drive to deliver plant-based food that is tasty, nutritious, and also environment-friendly. As more and more consumers seek healthier variety in their diets and discover new ways of enjoying food that is good for them as well as the planet, we turn to Malaysia’s all-time favorite MILO and NESCAFÉ drinks to innovate its dairy-free versions respectively in supporting them on their plant-based journey towards a more sustainable – yet tasty – future,” says Juan Aranols, Chief Executive Officer, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad.
Nestle has made a pledge to achieve zero net emissions by the year 2050 and as a step to propel them into their desired achievement, sets in motion their revolutionary launch of dairy-free drinks. April Wong, Business Executive Officer – Ready-to-Drink, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad says that Nestle takes pride in leading the way with their line of dairy-free drinks and intends on blazing the path with more products being added to the range.
MILO Dairy Free Almond is available in UHT 1l and PET bottle 225ml while NESCAFÉ Dairy Free Almond Latte and NESCAFÉ Dairy Free Oat Latte are available in PET bottle 225ml. These drinks meet the Healthier Choice Logo criteria by the Ministry of Health Malaysia as they are lower in sugar and fat when compared to others within the same product category without the Healthier Choice Logo.
Milo and Nescafe fanatics can now opt for a healthier, plant-based, and lactose-free option of their favorite drink at any Jaya Grocer or other leading supermarkets, retailers, convenience stores, and e-commerce sites.
