Industry reports show consistent growth in organic food and beverages and PacificÂ® Natural Foods is responding to this high demand for organic beverages by converting its entire all-natural non-dairy Almond Beverage line to organic, becoming the only brand in the marketplace with a full line of organic non-dairy almond beverages.
The complete line includes: Organic Almond Original, Organic Almond Vanilla, Organic Almond Unsweetened Original and Organic Almond Unsweetened Vanilla in 32oz aseptic containers; and Organic Almond Chocolate and Organic Almond Vanilla in 8 oz. four packs. The suggested retail prices for the 8 oz. four packs are $3.49-$3.99 and the 32 oz. beverages are priced at $2.49-$2.99.
Kevin Tisdale, director of marketing at Pacific Natural Foods, said the new Organic Almond Beverages are a natural progression for the company â a leading manufacturer of non-dairy, alternative beverages.
âOur customers are seeking not only alternatives to dairy, but they want products made with quality organic ingredients,â Tisdale said. âSeveral industry studies support our commitment to offering innovative products that taste great and are healthier, Certified to the Sourceâ¢ and organic.
For example, the Organic Trade Association reported that the U.S. organic industry grew 21 percent to $17.7 billion in consumer sales in 2006. Last year, sales increased for food and beverages to $20 billion. A recent Mintel consumer survey also found that just more than half of all Americans said they have purchased organic foods in the past year, while more than a quarter bought organic beverages.
All of Pacific Natural Foodsâ products are made with fresh, wholesome, all-natural and organic ingredients that are Certified to the Sourceâ¢; ensuring that all ingredients meet the highest standards for safety, health and quality. The proprietary Certified to the Sourceâ¢ certification program guarantees those standards by working with suppliers to identify ingredient sources and track the history of each ingredient from seed to shelf.
