Biotiful Dairy has released a range of kefir drinks in the UK made with oats instead of dairy.
Described by Biotiful as a world first, the new drinks are a plant-based alternative to kefir, a fermented beverage that is traditionally made with milk. Three flavours are available – Mango, Strawberry and Original.
Each 25cl bottle contains live cultures as well as vitamins B12 and B2 to help support immunity, said Biotiful, which also produces dairy-based kefir drinks.
An above-the-line marketing campaign will support the new launch, including sampling across the UK and a broadcast advertising campaign through October and November.
“We know that consumers are actively seeking delicious plant-based products and want added benefits, especially gut health and immunity support, and we are best placed to lead the market in this highly relevant space,” said Biotiful co-founder Natasha Bowes.
