Plant based milks are now a fantastic alternative to cow’s milk and definitely feature in our ‘Sustainable Swaps.’ In the UK, almost a quarter of adults consume non-dairy milk, especially those in younger demographics. Between 2019 and 2022, sales grew by 19% in comparison to animal-based milk. A switch to plant-based milks is not only popular but important for the environment as they require less land and water to produce.
Some plant-based alternatives are long-life and can be kept out of the fridge which reduces waste and reduces fridge energy expenditure.
As well as being good for environment, they’re often lower in fat, calories and sugar content, although you need to ensure that they’ve not been processed with unhealthy oils and sugar.
Our e2b client Califia Farms offers a wide range of almond, oat and coconut milks.
