Kite Hill Expands Into Coconut Milk Yogurt and Dairy-Free Sour Cream
Leading non-dairy cheese and yogurt brand Kite Hill is expanding its offerings with a dairy-free sour cream and more yogurt.
Known for its almond base, which the sour cream is made from, the California brand is also venturing into another non-dairy category. The new Blissful Yogurt line is made from coconut milk.
Kite Hill also veers into a more decadent direction with the new “Blissful” flavors. The yogurts come in: Decadent Vanilla Bean, Strawberries and Crème, Blueberry Limoncello, Salted Caramel, Café Macchiato, and Peaches and Crème.
“Kite Hill is an amazing brand with a really strong and loyal following that continues to grow every day,” Robert Leibowitz, chief executive officer of Kite Hill, said in a statement. “Our passionate consumers and retail partners were asking us to satisfy emerging yogurt snacking needs, and to continue to expand Kite Hill into adjacent segments beyond yogurt where there weren’t enough great tasting plant-based alternatives.”
According to the company, the coconut milk yogurts are “thick, creamy and indulgent with a distinctly artisanal touch.” The new sour cream is made from California almonds, “responsibly sourced” coconut milk, and chickpea protein.
“Demand for variety, superior taste, and simple ingredients in the non-dairy plant-based market continues to accelerate as consumers actively seek food options that they can feel great about,” said Shannon Toyos, Kite Hill’s senior vice-president of marketing. “We are constantly looking for ways to surprise and delight our current and future consumers with tasty artisanal plant-based foods and the launch of our two new product platforms together represent the largest single slate of innovation in the company’s history.”
