260 Brands Launches Plant-Based Milk
In 2022, 260 Brands’ Nutramilk was awarded Product of the Year for Large Enterprises at the Zambia Association of Manufacturers 2022 Gala Awards and was recently recognised alongside Seba’s Thobwa as New Products of the Year at the African Food Awards held in Nairobi, Kenya in June 2023.
A First for Zambia
Introducing Zambia’s first plant-based milk product, Nutramilk – the ideal choice for those who want to live a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle. This protein-rich dairy alternative is a game-changer for the local beverage industry. With its delicious taste, impressive nutritional benefits, and environmentally friendly production process, it is no wonder it is quickly becoming the go-to choice for the health-conscious.
Zambia is taking bold and active steps towards promoting environmental sustainability, and the private sector is taking the initiative and rising to the challenge. 260 Brands have recently added Nutramilk, Zambia’s first soy milk, to their product portfolio. Nutramilk is made from non-GMO soybeans, contains no preservatives, and is cholesterol-free.
Nutramilk is a protein-rich dairy alternative fortified with essential vitamins (A, B9, B12, D2), calcium, iron and zinc. It is a prime example of the innovative solutions being developed to reduce the inevitable environmental impact of industrialisation in the country. Nutramilk’s primary input, soya beans, is locally sourced through farmers managed directly by an out-grower scheme within the country, truly making this a proudly Zambian product.
What Makes Nutramilk So Unique?
Firstly, 9g of protein per serving provides a convenient and delicious way to get the protein you need to support your active lifestyle. Another exciting benefit of Nutramilk is that it is cholesterolfree, making it an ideal choice for those concerned about their heart health. This is particularly important in Zambia, where heart disease is a growing concern, and high cholesterol is a major contributor to the development of this condition.
In Nutramilk, lactose-intolerant individuals have an affordable yet delicious nutritional drink without the uncomfortable symptoms associated with lactose intolerance.
Nutramilk is processed through UHT (ultra-high temperature) processing, giving it a longer shelf-life and making it easily accessible to everyone without the hassle of storing it in refrigerators. Nutramilk is widely available at supermarkets and convenience stores countrywide and comes in various flavours and sizes, namely Sweetened, Unsweetened, Chocolate, and Strawberry flavours. Each flavour is available in 200ml or 500ml sachets, and a Barista and Organic certified variant is available in one-litre cartons. Its smooth, creamy texture makes it perfect for drinking alone or in your favourite recipes.
