USA – Califia Farms, US plant-based company, has announced the nationwide distribution of its line of Plant Butters, as it looks to capitalise on consumer demand for vegan butter alternatives.
The plant-based alternative to dairy butter is the first product outside the company’s current beverage portfolio of plant-based milk, creamers, drinkable yogurts and cold brew coffee.
The cashew and tiger nut-based butters are available in two flavours: sea salt with avocado oil, and sea salt with olive oil. They contain no canola or palm oil, soy or GMOs.
Califia Farms launched the range earlier this summer but both varieties are now available nationally at Whole Foods Market, Kroger and Target, among other retailers. Each 8oz tub retails at US$4.99.
