New chocolate flavoured almond milk
Following the launch in Australia in 2012 of dairy-free almond milk, Almond Breeze, the brand is expanding its range with a low-fat chocolate version.
Hitting the shelves in the lead up to Easter, the Company said the chocolate version has just 120 calories per 250ml serving.
“Since the launch of Original and Unsweetened Almond Breeze, our Australian customers were asking us to introduce our flavoured versions, which are a big hit in the USA,” said Roger Ringwood, Australian director for Almond Breeze.
The Company says the product, which is made from almonds, is also a good source of calcium, is low in saturated fat and is free from cholesterol, soy and gluten.
Chocolate Almond Breeze is produced in Sydney and will be distributed by ‘allergen-free’ food distributor Freedom Foods. Initially, the product will be available through Coles and independent retailers such as IGA supermarkets. The Company says it has plans to expand into other grocery outlets over the coming months.
