The Fresh Plant-Based almond milks from Amazon have 50% more calcium than dairy milk.
From protein-packed meat alternatives to dairy-free milk options, Amazon has expanded its Fresh food brand to offer a new Fresh Plant-Based product line that’s now available online and in-store at Amazon Fresh.
According to the company, the Fresh Plant-Based line offers customers a variety of affordable favorites free from animal products but still full of flavor.
Besides filling shoppers’ need for more affordable options, consumers are also turning to plant-based foods for heathier alternatives to animal-based products. As a result, Bloomberg Intelligence recently reported that the plant-based food market could make up as much as 7.7% of the global protein market by 2030, with a value of more than $162 billion, up from $29.4 billion in 2020. A recent report from the firm, “Plant-Based Foods Poised for Explosive Growth,” also pointed out that meat and dairy alternatives could even obtain 5% and 10% of their respective global market shares in the next decade.
Amazon Fresh is taking notice of this increased interest in animal-free protein with its new Fresh Plant-Based line. It currently offers a selection of 15 healthy plant-based products, including patties that have 21 grams of protein per serving; Italian meatballs that have 17 grams of protein per serving;Chick’n Nuggets that have 12 grams of protein per serving; and almond milks that have 50% more calcium than dairy milk. To guarantee quality, Amazon said that every product is rigorously taste-tested to exceed customers’ expectations.
Amazon intends to continue to expand the Fresh Plant-Based product line this year to bring customers more healthy, affordable plant-based products.
To celebrate the launch of the new offerings, all Fresh Plant-Based meat alternatives will be 20% off for Amazon Fresh customers throughout the month of March in stores and online.
Amazon Fresh is rapidly growing its brick-and-mortar grocery stores, with its latest opening located in Naperville, Ill. This large western suburb of Chicago is the second store in the region. However, the new 35,000-square-foot store at 1351 East Ogden Avenue is the only site in the area to offer Just Walk Out cashier-less technology.
