Non-dairy creamers stir up manufacturer sales

Technomic’s Volumix captures operator purchase data for 100+ categories, including beverage creamers

CHICAGO, Mar. 9, 2017—As more operators look for ways to address their guests’ dietary needs, manufacturers are seeing a growing demand for dairy-free creamers made with soy, almond or rice milk. In fact, manufacturer sales of plant-based alternative creamers grew 14.2% year over year, according to data from Technomic’s latest Volumix Beverage Creamer Report, while total volume increased 13.0%. This is in contrast to the decline in total sales and nearly flat total volume growth for dairy-based creamers.
