Within the plant-based food trends, we have seen an increase in new milk trends. There are new alternative milk options rapidly coming to market as well as innovation within the conventional space.

Alternative Milk & Conventional Milk Trends:

  • Milkadamia: Macadamia milk that is deliciously free of dairy, soy, GMO’s and gluten.
  • Oatly Barista Milk: Fully foamable putting you in total control over the density and performance of your foam so you can showcase your latte art.
  • Non-Dairy Chobani: A delicious, non-dairy coconut-based blend packed with probiotics and made with 25% less sugar* than other non-dairy alternatives.
  • Organic Valley Grass Fed Certification: To ensure open and transparent labeling, the seal is owned and administered by a third party called the Organic Plus Trust (OPT), Inc. Now, when you want organic dairy from cows that eat all grass and no grains, you can look for one sea.
