The brand has also secured a new listing for the ‘Snowconut’ frozen range, rolling out nationwide with Co-op.

James Averdieck, the company’s co-founder said: “We launched this new variant as we noticed a growing appetite for almond milk with free-from and health-conscious consumers.

“Not only is this new variant dairy-free but it also harnesses the dual nutritional benefits of both coconut and almond milk, whilst delivering exceptionally on taste and texture. “The popularity of our ‘Snowconut’ range has blown us away since we launched and this is a significant new listing to have secured.”

The addition of Almond means there are now five flavours in the yogurt range: Natural, Blueberry, Mango & Passionfruit and Raspberry.
