Made without milk


Made without milk

In the last four years, the number of new products launched that can be labelled as made without milk has grown by 3%, demonstrating a steady increase in demand (Mintel, 2017). With almost half of these launches being accredited to plant based milks, it’s clear that consumers are seeking products which act as an alternative to traditional dairy products such as milk, yogurt and cheese.


What do we mean by made without milk?

Equivalent to dairy free – foods which do not contain milk or any derivative. This includes all mammal milk based produce and therefore excludes goat, sheep, cow and buffalo milk. All own brand products will use the term “milk free” when making a claim and is the preferred terminology for branded suppliers.


Claims that can be used when referring to products that are made without milk:

√ Dairy free
√ Milk free
√ Lactose free


Made without milk-style products

With nearly 1 in 3 households now buying plant based products (Nielson 2017), Alpro has launched a range of plant based milks to cater to this demand. Their ‘For Professionals’ range, for example, has been specifically developed for use in coffee with impressive workability and a rich, glossy microfoam. They also have key flavours such as coconut, almond and cashew which taste fantastic in porridge, smoothies and hot beverages. Check out page 43 of the brochure for the full range of made without Alpro products.


Alternatives to cheese

You customers who are seeking made without milk options don’t have to miss out on well-loved menu classics. We’ve sourced a range of vegan cheeses from Nature & Moi as a replacement for traditional Cheddar, Parmesan and Mozzarella. Whether it’s sliced or grated, they offer great flexibility, allowing you to create your magic. For our full range of vegan cheeses take a look at page 42 of the brochure.


Ice cream

With ice cream continuing to be a firm favourite throughout the year, we’re excited to offer a range of made without milk ice cream-style products. They come in 900g tubs so will take up limited freezer space and really pack a punch when it comes to flavour. They come in four mouth-watering flavours; raspberry, vanilla, blueberry and chocolate and also have the added benefit of being vegan friendly!
