Swiss food and drink company Nestlé has expanded its products offering in the UK and Irish markets with the launch of three plant-based coffees under its Nescafé Gold brand.

The three new latte variants including almond, oat and coconut, are certified by the Vegan Society. Therefore, the products can be used by consumers following a vegan diet.

Nescafé UK and Ireland business head Neil Stephens 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 flavours, oat, almond and coconut are also vegan-friendly as well as being a source of calcium.

“Nescafé is the world’s favourite 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.”

Initially, the company will be distributing its new latte range across Tesco until February 2020. They will be rolling out the products to other retailers in the UK and Ireland thereafter.

The new Nescafé Gold latte range is produced using blends of 100% Arabica coffees, which have been crafted to mix with the plant based ingredients to create smooth creamy tasting lattes and each mug contains a source of calcium.

With this latest launch, the company aims to meet the consumers growing demand for plant-based and non-dairy products.

Nescafé Gold Almond Latte, Nescafé Gold Oat Latte and Nescafé Gold Coconut Latte will be retailed in a pack of six for a recommended retail price (RRP) of £2.98.

The plant-based coffee products will be making their debut in the UK and Ireland before being distributed to other parts of the globe including Asia, Europe, Latin America and Oceania.
