Sip on South Africa’s first plant-based lattes from NESCAFÉ

Nestlé’s new premium NESCAFÉ GOLD plant-based, non-dairy lattes are now available in South Africa.

Crafted with plant-based ingredients, these are non-dairy coffee lattes for people following a vegan diet, those wishing to live a healthier, sustainable lifestyle and everyone with a taste for exceptional coffee.

Curated using a blend of the highest quality Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, almond, oat and coconut, the new lattes are delectably smooth and creamy while being vegan–friendly and dairy-free. The innovative soluble lattes complement the favoured NESCAFÉ GOLD range to bring home the taste of café-quality, plant-based lattes.

Nicole Roos, Business Executive Officer: Beverages at Nestlé South Africa says: “We keep our fingers on the pulse of consumer desires.  Worldwide, there is growing consumer consciousness of health, wellness and longevity which has inspired a move towards natural, plant-based products.”

“Until now, there has been no one-cup soluble cappuccino treat for consumers who do not consume dairy products ; whether it is a lifestyle choice or because they must avoid dairy due to allergies or health reasons.  With the new NESCAFÉ GOLD plant-based mixes range, we are the first food and beverage manufacturer in South Africa to introduce an offering that invites them to enjoy a premium, frothy cappuccino experience at home,” added Roos.

There will be three variants, each with its own discerning flavour. The vegan-friendly flavours are Coconut Latte, Almond Latte and Oat Latte. The one-cup milk-alternative latte sachets are easy to prepare. Simply add hot water, stir vigorously and savour sensory experience of coffee crafted with the best quality ingredients. 

Roos concludes: “Not only are our new mixes leading the way with dairy-free convenient coffee solutions but are also undoubtedly the most delicious plant-based lattes you will ever make at home. They are also part of an ever-growing repertoire of exciting innovations and experiences from NESCAFÉ for diverse and discerning consumers.”

Introduced first in the United Kingdom, the NESCAFÉ GOLD Dairy Alternative range took home the 2020 Product of the Year Award in the dairy alternatives category*! The convenient vegan-friendly sachets were voted for by over 10,000 consumers via independent research conducted by global research group, Kantar.
