China's First Plant-based Yogurt Product

Not only is this Nongfu’s debut yogurt product, but it is also plant-based, making it the first plant-based yogurt product to go mainstream in China. 
This mainstream plant-based yogurt brand may be the start of a completely new category of yogurt in the industry. This new product comes at the height of what could be considered the plant-based revolution. 

According to Innova Market Insights, plant-based products increased 62% globally in just four years from 2013 to 2017. 

During a press release, Lu Ann Williams, director of innovation at Innova, said that alternatives to dairy products are especially high in demand, including non-dairy yogurt, which saw a growth of 48% in sales during the same four-year period.

This product mainly targets health-conscious consumers, as well as the lactose intolerant (up to 90% of East Asians in some communities), and those looking for a healthy, low-fat alternative.

Nongfu plans on releasing three different yogurt products including walnut, coconut and almond.
