Danone North America releases two dairy-free Stok cold brews

Danone North America has expanded its Stok Cold Brew portfolio with two new dairy-free creamed coffees.

Stok Oatmilk Latte and Stok Almondmilk Mocha are brewed using a ten-hour process that results in a “smooth, coffee-forward experience”.

The oat milk variant is said to add a layer of creaminess while allowing the coffee flavour to shine through. It contains 135mg of caffeine per 12oz serving.

Meanwhile, the almond milk cold brew features 130mg of caffeine and 15g of sugar per 12oz serving and is complemented by chocolate.

Lindsey Morgan, marketing director for Stok Cold Brew, said: “At Stok, we take the craft of cold brew coffee seriously – but we also like to tinker with our recipes and have some fun.

“Our new Oatmilk Latte and Almondmilk Mocha Cold Brews offer coffee fans a delicious, creamy and ready-to-drink brew that they can enjoy whenever the need for a pick-me-up strikes.”

Dairy-free, gluten-free and certified vegan, both cold brews are available in the US in 48oz multi-serve bottles with a suggested retail price of $5.49.

Last year, Danone North America launched Stok Protein Cold Brew Coffee, which contains 16g of protein per serving.

Last October, Danone revealed plans to triple the size of its plant-based business by 2025, aiming to grow plant-based sales from €1.7 billion to around €5 billion.

Its Danone North America subsidiary has since opened a new building at its DuBois, Pennsylvania, facility to increase production of its plant-based foods.

Following a multi-million-dollar investment, the site will now produce Vega yogurt alternatives and nutritional powders, as well as Silk yogurt alternatives and So Delicious Dairy Free yogurt alternatives and dairy-free cheese shreds.
