We are incredibly excited to formally introduce Alpro to the South African coffee market! The brand has long been on the supermarket shelves and is well known the world over, but as the demand for delicious and nutritious plant-based alternatives grows, so has Alpro's range and quality. And the application when it comes to coffee is very exciting.
This International brand is a market leader in Europe and all around the world in plant-based products and we are thrilled to see them becoming more active in South Africa and investing particularly in the coffee community.
We first heard about Alpro two years ago at the Coffee Leaders Summit in Cape Town, where it was clear that trends towards healthy, plant-based alternatives was a huge trend overseas and it would be a matter of time before the same trends hit our shores. Well that time is here!
We are also thrilled to announce that not only is Alpro helping South Africans to take the first steps towards a healthy, alternative and more sustainable diet but baristas are also at the core of their focus. The brand has done amazing work overseas during COVID-19 helping cafes and baristas get back to work, and the local team here in SA headed up by Danone, has committed to do it's part by offering Alpro product to help cafes get back in business!
