Nestlé’s new premium Nescafé Gold plant-based, non-dairy lattes are now available in South Africa. Crafted with plant-based ingredients, these are non-dairy coffee lattes for people following a vegan diet, those wishing to live a healthier, sustainable lifestyle and everyone with a taste for exceptional coffee.

Curated using a blend of the highest quality Arabica and Robusta coffee beans, almond, oat and coconut, the new lattes are delectably smooth and creamy while being vegan–friendly and dairy-free. The innovative soluble lattes complement the favoured Nescafé Gold range to bring home the taste of café-quality, plant-based lattes.

Nicole Roos, the business executive officer for beverages at Nestlé South Africa, says: "We keep our fingers on the pulse of consumer desires. Worldwide, there is growing consumer consciousness of health, wellness and longevity which has inspired a move towards natural, plant-based products." 

"Until now, there has been no one-cup soluble cappuccino treat for consumers who do not consume dairy products, whether it is a lifestyle choice or because they must avoid dairy due to allergies or health reasons. With the new Nescafé Gold plant-based mixes range, we are the first food and beverage manufacturer in South Africa to introduce an offering that invites them to enjoy a premium, frothy cappuccino experience at home,” says Roos.

There will be three variants, each with its own discerning flavour. The vegan-friendly flavours are Coconut Latte, Almond Latte and Oat Latte. The one-cup milk-alternative latte sachets are easy to prepare. Simply add hot water, stir vigorously and savour the sensory experience of coffee crafted with the best-quality ingredients. 

Roos concludes: “Not only are our new mixes leading the way with dairy-free convenient coffee solutions but are also undoubtedly the most delicious plant-based lattes you will ever make at home. They are also part of an ever-growing repertoire of exciting innovations and experiences from Nescafé for diverse and discerning consumers.” The Nescafé Gold Vegan Lattes are available at all leading retailers in South Africa.

Sir Fruit launches all-new Gingerade+ to join its healthy juice family

People are increasingly becoming aware of the great health benefits of ginger. South Africa’s favourite premium juice company, Sir Fruit, has developed a mouth-watering ginger recipe to join its juice family: introducing Gingerade+.

The combination of lemon and ginger has traditionally been used to soothe the digestive system, settle the stomach and relieve nausea with immune-boosting support. So the masterminds at Sir Fruit decided to blend ginger with lemon and apple juices to create the perfect flavour balance and, for an extra boost, incorporated added vitamins to the recipe.

Packed with a good dose of wellness in a bottle, Gingerade+ includes 100% of the recommended daily allowance of added vitamins such as: B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E (ALL of the good stuff!)

“A strong immune system is so important right now and our aim was to play our part in helping people stay healthy. Creating healthy and delicious drinks are at the core of who we are and we’re very excited with the end result!” says head of marketing Roanne Goldsmith.

Sir Fruit’s Gingerade+ is available in 500ml and 1.5L and will be available at top grocers nationwide and to shop online at www.sirfresh.co.za.
