Nestlé to launch vegan version of KitKat in 15 European countries

Made from sustainably sourced cocoa through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan

Fans of KitKat across Europe will soon be able to take a plant-based break. That’s because KitKat V, the vegan version of the iconic treat, is launching now in 15 European countries.

The new KitKat V was developed by chocolate experts at Nestlé’s confectionery research and development center in York, UK, the original home of KitKat. Combining Nestlé’s expertise in chocolate innovation and non-dairy alternatives, they managed to perfectly blend the smooth chocolate with plant-based ingredients.

KitKat V is certified vegan and made from sustainably sourced cocoa through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan, with Rainforest Alliance certification. The milk in the original KitKat is replaced with a rice-based alternative, which gives the perfect texture and flavour.

The new vegan KitKat will be produced at Nestlé’s confectionery site in Hamburg, Germany. It will be sold in 15 countries across Europe including Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Greece, Portugal, Poland, Hungary, and the Netherlands.

Over its full lifecycle from farm to consumer, KitKat V has an 18% lower carbon footprint compared to a standard milk chocolate KitKat.
