India Launches A Government Supported Vegan Ice Cream
India, well known for its vegan and vegetarian dishes – has debuted two new dairy-free vegan ice cream flavors this month.
Indian based company, Hangyo announced the released on the 90th Foundation Day celebration of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) in New Delhi.
The company entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with ICAR and its Central Plantation Crops Research Institute to develop the product last year.
“We have been successful in manufacturing and expanding a new product range of the Hangyo brand,”
Hangyo’s Managing Director Pradeep G. Pai said. “This is made on the lines of the Prime Minister’s slogan, ‘Make in India.’” The coconut milk-based ice cream is available in Coconut Delicacy and Choconut Delicacy flavors. “In India, the ice cream sector is growing,” Pai said, “and we at Hangyo are constantly working to bring better and new products to our customers.”
Hangyo wasn’t always a dairy-free vegan ice cream company, they originally started out as a milk marketing company, and then made the switch over ten years ago, as they noticed that profit was much higher in the plant-based business. As their demand grew for vegan products, they knew that there was an opening for vegan ice cream.
“In India, the ice cream sector is growing, and we at Hangyo Ice Creams Pvt. Ltd, are constantly working to bring better and new products to our customers.”
