Nestlé launches plant-based coffee lattes in Japan

Nestlé Japan has launched a range of Nescafé lattes crafted with plant-based ingredients to keep up with the growing trend of plant-based food in Japan.

The plant-based latte range in Japan includes ready-to-drink beverages, soluble mixes that are made by adding hot water and capsules for the Nescafé Dolce Gusto system.

The two varieties are oat latte and almond latte, blended with Nescafé coffee.

The launch in Japan follows earlier launches of the plant-based coffee mixes across several countries in Europe, Latin America and Oceania.

Nestlé said it hopes to help people embrace a more plant-based diet, with options across its wide range of food and beverages.

The company has already launched plant-based alternatives to dairy made from rice, oat, soy, coconut, pea and almonds across categories.

Examples include non-dairy ice cream, coffee creamers, rice- and oat-based drinks, pea-based beverages, plant-based cappuccinos and lattes, a vegan condensed milk alternative, as well as a range of non-dairy cheese to complement its plant-based burgers.

Plant-based foods continues to be one of the defining trends in the food and beverage industry this year as more consumers look for healthier and ethical food options.
