Emmi has announced the launch of its new plant-based dairy alternative brand, Beleaf

A major dairy company from Switzerland, Emmi, is branching out into the world of dairy alternatives with the launch of its first plant-based brand, Beleaf.

The Beleaf range, which is certified vegan, encompasses a range of plant-based drinks, yoghurt alternatives and cultured shots made with almonds and oats.

There are three flavours of almond-based yoghurts to choose from including berries, mango & passionfruit and plain almond variants.

The yoghurts are available in individual-sized pots as well as larger 350g-sized pots.

As well as yoghurts, the Beleaf range also includes gut-friendly almond-based cultured shots in strawberry and plain which contain live active cultures and added vitamins.

Finally, the range will also see the launch of an almond-based unsweetened drink and an oat-based unsweetened drink.

According to Emmi, the brand is targeted at the rising number of flexitarians with a focus on “great taste, clean ingredients, minimal processing, and sustainable packaging.”

Retail launch 

The Beleaf range was rolled out to stores in Switzerland in March and will be introduced at UK retailers later this month.

The drinks will be available to purchase from wholesale and convenience channels from 17 June and the brand’s 350g yoghurt alternatives will appear in Tesco on 6 July.

Asda stores will be stocking both sizes of the yoghurt alternatives and the shots from 22 July.
