The demand for dairy-free alternatives has never been higher. Since 2014, the number of vegan consumers has risen an astonishing 500 percent, and nearly 50 million American Adults are lactose intolerant. To help operators respond to the changing needs of their customers, Danone North America—the world’s largest Certified B Corporation—launched Silk Dairy-Free Vanilla Creamer Singles, the first-ever plant-based coffee creamer in a single-serving format.

“For a long time, we’ve heard the call for a convenient, on-the-go, plant-based creamer,” said Tara Hintz, Director of Innovation & Strategy at Danone North America. “When we connect with operators, it’s the first thing they ask about—because their customers want to see a dairy-free option at coffee stations. Silk is the No. 1 plant-based beverage brand—with 95 percent brand awareness—so patrons will definitely take notice.”

Last year, plant-based foods accounted for $3 billion in sales and dairy-free creamers saw an 85 percent increase. “We anticipate the rapidly-growing, health-conscious millennial population will continue to drive that growth well into 2019,” added Hintz.

The New Silk Dairy-Free Creamer Singles are Non-GMO Project Verified, Vegan Certified, Kosher, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Carrageenan-Free, Cholesterol-Free and contain no artificial colors or flavors. The creamer singles have a slightly nutty, smooth vanilla flavor and are available in 9mL cups in a 192 count display box.
