Pacific Natural Foods Adds Hemp to its Nut and Grain Line of Non-Dairy Beverages

Pacific® Natural Foods, one of the fastest growing brands in the non-dairy category (excluding soy and rice), adds All Natural Hemp Milk to its lineup of shelf-stable non-dairy beverages.

The All Natural Hemp Milk is available in Original and Vanilla flavors. The milks offer 50 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance of calcium, 4 grams of fiber and 10 essential amino acids. The milks are free of Trans fat; they are lactose free, cholesterol free and gluten free. Vitamins in the new product include: A, D, B12, E, Riboflavin and Folic Acid.

A Prevention article in the March issue, “Eat to Live Longer,” quoted The Biggest Loser nutritionist Cheryl Forberg, RD, who suggested eating “a daily dose of omega-3s. I like to call them the anti-aging fat.”

Organic Unsweetened Almond Non-Dairy Beverages are now being sold in a 64 oz. family size. The low fat drinks are made with organic almonds and offered in vanilla and original flavors. Pacific Natural Foods’ Organic Unsweetened Almond Beverages grew 345 percent – eight times faster than the category (excluding soy and rice) during the last 52 weeks.*

Pacific Natural Foods is adding All Natural Hazelnut Chocolate Non-Dairy Beverage to the 32 oz. and 8 oz. 4-pack beverage offerings. The new chocolate flavor joins the popular All Natural Original Hazelnut 32 oz. non-dairy beverage. The new hazelnut drink is made with real chocolate and Oregon hazelnuts. The 8 oz. 4-packs are conveniently packaged for lunches or an on-the-go treat. They are also an excellent source of calcium, Vitamin D and Riboflavin.

Kevin Tisdale, director of marketing at Pacific Natural Foods, said the new non-dairy beverages meet the growing and unique needs of consumers.

“Our intention is to give our consumers what works best for their active, healthy lifestyle and these new options meet a variety of those specific needs and requests,” Tisdale said. “We are also pleased to offer a brand new offering with the new hemp beverages.”

The suggested retail prices for the drinks are: 32 oz. $2.29-$2.99; 64 oz. $3.99; and 8 oz. 4-packs $3.49-$3.99.
