Coffee mate is getting in on the plant-based movement. The iconic coffee creamer brand recently announced the launch of their own plant-based coffee creamers for the first time in their 50-year history with the new Almond and Oat Milk creamers in two flavors, French Vanilla, and Caramel. Both new flavors will be available at select Walmart locations starting in October and will be available at grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide in January 2023.
According to Coffee mate, the new creamers combine flavors that fans already love with a smooth, blended base of oat and almond milk. The demand for plant-based creamers has been steadily growing in recent years and in 2022 represented 15 percent of the overall coffee creamer category.
"As creamer fans continue to seek variety, both in flavor and ingredients, it was only natural for Coffee mate to step into the plant space," said Leonardo Aizpuru, Nestlé Senior Director of Brand Marketing and Leader of the Creamer Business Unit. "Now everyone can have the best of both worlds – the delicious taste of Coffee mate, featuring plant-based ingredients."
