        Costa takes


        to a new level

        As consumer demand for vegan options and
        freefrom products continues to grow, Costa Coffee
        has added two new milk flavours to its milk range,
        which now comprises seven variants.
          The new Semi-Skimmed Lactofree Milk and
        Almond Drink join the lineup that comprises Coconut,
        Soya, Semi-Skimmed, Skimmed and Whole Milk.
          Russell Braterman, Innovations Director at Costa
        Coffee said: “We know our customers want more
        choice when it comes to coffee customisation and
        have witnessed a growing demand for ‘free-from’ and
        vegan options. Given the popularity of the Coconut
        alternative drink, which we introduced last year, our
        Lactofree and Almond options are the next logical
        step. Our seven-strong range means we can now
        cater to our customers unique preferences, without
        compromising on the great taste they love.’’
