Danone North America has become the first company to introduce a plant-based coffee creamer, in response to consumer demand for a dairy-free alternative. Silk® dairy-free portioned vanilla coffee creamer is vegan, gluten-free, soya-free, cholesterol-free and made without artificial colors or flavors. It has a nutty vanilla taste and is available in 9 ml cups.
Tara Hintz, Director of Innovation & Strategy at Danone North America, commented on the new product: “For a long time, we’ve heard the call for a convenient, on-the-go, plant-based creamer.When we connect with operators, it’s the first thing they ask about – because their customers want to see a dairy-free option at coffee stations. Silk is the #1 plant-based beverage brand – with 95 percent brand awareness – so patrons will definitely take notice.”
