Nestlé is rivaling plant-based milk brand Oatly with the launch of its new pea milk products branded as Wunda.
The plant-based milk is made from yellow peas enriched with calcium vitamins D, B2, and B12.
The Wunda beverages are also carbon neutral and certified by the Carbon Trust, the company says they achieved through several measures along the supply chain like using renewable energy in production while reducing emissions during distribution.
Wunda pea milk will debut in France, Holland, and Portugal. Initially, it will be produced in 3 flavors, Natural, unsweetened, and chocolate versions.
“This truly versatile, delicious pea-based beverage is an excellent source of protein and fiber. Its great neutral taste, the ability to use it for different applications, and the fact that it is carbon neutral make it an ideal plant-based alternative to milk. Our young intrapreneurs created this great product based on their own consumer needs by leveraging our longstanding expertise in plant-proteins and dairy.”Stefan Palzer, Chief Technology Officer at Nestlé
