Cadbury To Launch Vegan Version Of Dairy Milk Chocolate

by | February 24, 2020

International confectionary giant Cadbury is working to produce a vegan version of its popular Dairy Milk chocolate bar.

The company — which has been making chocolate with cow’s milk since 1897 — has been working on a vegan alternative for the last two years.

Cadbury was rumored to be launching dairy-free chocolate in time for Veganuary this year. The confectionary giant is said to be experiencing delays in the search for the perfect nut-free milk alternative.

“Plant-Based Cadbury”

“We’re always listening to our consumers so we can develop and provide people with greater choice,” said a spokesperson for the company.

“This includes looking at a plant-based Cadbury Dairy Milk bar.”

“We are only interested in launching a new vegan product that retains the texture and taste that our consumers expect and love.”

Cadbury is not the only confectionary company to be embracing the plant-based trend.

In November last year, Mars launched three vegan chocolate bars in the UK as part of its popular Galaxy line.

The 100g bars cost £3 each and are available in three flavors — smooth orange, caramel and sea salt, and caramelised hazelnut. 

Mars has impressed eco-conscious consumers by ensuring all of the packaging for its new Galaxy chocolate bars is compostable or recyclable.
