Internationally acclaimed premium chocolate producer, Lindt & Sprüngli is launching Lindt Classic Recipe Vegan Caramel Sea Salt bars just in time for Veganuary, in Tesco and Sainsbury's nationwide this January 2023 (RRP £3.00 per 100g bar). To celebrate World Vegan Day on 1st November, Lindt pre-launched the new bars exclusively in Lindt chocolate shops and online (www.lindt.co.uk/shop) which have already proved popular with those opting for a tempting plant-based treat.
Following the successful launch of Lindt Classic Recipe Vegan Smooth and Lindt Classic Recipe Vegan Hazelnut last year, the Lindt Master Chocolatiers have extended the range and introduced new Lindt Classic Recipe Vegan Caramel Sea Salt, a non-dairy alternative to the UK's number two bestselling chocolate bar flavour, Caramel.
Expertly crafted by the innovative Lindt Master Chocolatiers according to traditional Swiss recipes, the exceptionally smooth Classic Recipe Vegan Caramel Sea Salt bar only uses the finest quality ingredients. Discover an exquisite combination of high-quality cocoa blended with gluten free oat drink, smooth almond paste and crisp caramel pieces with sea salt.
Appealing to not just vegans, Lindt's new vegan bars are safe to eat for Coeliacs and those who choose a gluten free diet using the UK's number one dairy alternative*, gluten free oat drink. With a record one in three Brits now drinking plant-based milk, new Lindt Classic Recipe Vegan Caramel Sea Salt bars will be a tempting treat throughout the year for those choosing a vegan based diet.
The launch is well timed, according to 'Sainsbury's Future of Food report', vegetarians and vegans will make up a quarter of the population by 2025. In addition, they reported a 24 per cent increase in customers searching for vegan products online and a 65 per cent increase in sales of plant-based products year-on-year.
Responding to customer demand, this exciting new vegan range is testament to Lindt's innovative new product development, with a no compromise approach on quality. Market research company 'Meticulous Research', states that the plant-based food market in Europe is expected to grow by 10 per cent a year from 2022 to 2029 to reach 16.7 billion US dollars by 2029 – more than the entire global vegan food market in 2021.
Whether you're vegan, gluten free or would like to try a plant-based option, Lindt guarantees the same taste sensation and quality with the Lindt Vegan CLASSIC RECIPE bars that is delivered throughout the entire range.
