Popular UK juice and smoothie brand, Innocent Drinks, is releasing three plant based milks - with super simple ingredients.
The new offerings include oat, almond, and hazelnut milk, which come in resealable plastic bottles - as opposed to the tetra packs or cartons most dairy alternatives come in.
Known for making juices and smoothies with minimal ingredients, the brand's new vegan milks follow suit.
The almond and oat milk have just three ingredients - the only additions are water and salt.
The hazelnut milk has water, salt, and organic rice, which is added to achieve a creamy consistency.
Innocent Drinks' UK and Ireland managing director, Nick Canney told The Grocer the dairy alternatives market is one of the company’s 'top priorities for 2018', saying the new milks are 'just the beginning'.
The bottles are at least 30 percent recycled, nontoxic plastic - and can be recycled after use.
Canney said: "We set ourselves a huge challenge to produce a great tasting and great looking product in a PET bottle without using any artificial additives.
"We're really proud of what we produced."
