La Vida Vegan

The original La Vida Vegan range was introduced worldwide in 2017 and its popularity has since taken a flight as it seems La Vida Vegan is exactly what consumers have been waiting for. The combination of a product that is 100% organic and vegan, palm oil-free, gluten-free and soy-free is one that is close to the heart of end users from varying segments, with varying beliefs and lifestyles. With La Vida Vegan Protein Brinkers takes it a step further, meeting the demands of the consumer who is also conscious about their sugar and protein-intake.

La Vida Vegan Protein

La Vida Vegan Protein will be available at retailers in three variants. For consumers who enjoy the popular taste of hazelnut spread, the Crunchy Hazelnut is a winner. With at least 5% of crunchy hazelnut pieces, this tasty variant offers a classical chocolate spread experience with a bite.

Coconut & Chocolate is an exciting mix of creamy chocolate and 5% coconut pieces and the Caramel variant is a smooth and creamy spread. All variants contain a minimum of 20% protein and have no added sugar.

Danny Schuwer, managing director at Brinkers, is looking forward to introducing the La Vida Vegan Protein range at the SIAL exhibition in Paris: “As an innovative producer of chocolate spread we are defining innovations in the chocolate spreads category, whilst continuing to discern hypes from trends. I am convinced that our consumers’ desire to make conscious choices about their food intake and lifestyle is part of a development that is here to stay. La Vida Vegan Protein meets their demands in every way as an alternative without added sugar, high in protein, organic, vegan, palm oil-free, soy-free and gluten-free. Quite the list!”
