With 100% natural ingredients, the new Nesquik is a source of plant-based protein
Nestlé is expanding its range of dairy alternatives with the launch of a plant-based Nesquik drink in Europe.
The new ready-to-drink beverage will be launched first in Spain, Portugal and Hungary and then in other European countries. It combines the goodness of oats and peas with sustainably sourced cocoa and is lower in sugar than regular milk-based Nesquik.
With 100% natural ingredients, the new Nesquik is a source of plant-based protein, naturally lactose free and certified by the Vegan Society.
Yasser AbdulMalak, head of dairy products for Europe, Middle East and North Africa at Nestlé, said: “What better way to bring more plant-based products into people’s everyday lives than with much-loved brands like Nesquik. We’re really proud of this new drink – it really hits the spot with that familiar Nesquik cocoa taste.”
The launch in Europe follows the introduction of Nesquik GoodNes in the United States this January, also based on oats and peas.
Nestlé also launched its first dairy alternative drink formulated for children this year, under its Ninho brand in Brazil. The plant-based Ninho Forti+ is a ready-to-drink beverage based on oats. It comes in strawberry & banana and apple & banana flavors with fruit pulp.
