Always innovating within the coffee space, we were at the forefront amongst national coffee chains with the introduction of dairy milk alternatives to complement our coffee offering. With an ongoing vida e mundo, sustainability journey, we are committed to finding milk alternatives to meet your ethical needs and progress on our journey of caring for our planet.
Soy milk was first made available to consumers in 2009, almond milk in 2015 and coconut milk in 2017 – all of which have been a huge success. In May 2019, we were the first national coffee chain to move to a new non-dairy barista milk range for espresso-based coffee sourced from the award winning MILKLAB – developed for baristas by baristas. MILKLAB is designed to texture and stretch with any coffee type offering a smooth drinking experience, while perfectly complimenting the intensity of espresso. As well as being free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.
Now, we are very excited to announce the launch of okja oat m*lk into select vida stores. okja is rich and creamy, creating a delectable foam for silky flat-whites, frothy cappuccinos or anywhere else that luscious plant-based foam is required. Containing the highest quality ingredients, okja is made using a delicate blend of Italian oats, unrefined cold-pressed sunflower oil for natural emulsification, calcium for alkalinity and a touch of sea salt to balance the sweetness of the oats.
Why should you make the switch to this delicious alternative?
1. It’s dairy-free and vegan to suit your nutritional and ethical needs.
2. Perfect for those with allergies. It’s naturally free of lactose, nuts, and soy.
3. An excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, as well as fibre.
