Responding to the growing demand for indulgent options for the health-conscious customer, Luker’s innovative products using oat milk and coconut sugar include new chocolate couvertures in the functional category, with added benefits such as high fibre and antioxidants.
When done right, chocolate can be the perfect bridge between health and pleasure. While chocolate is certainly an indulgent treat, it also claims several nutritional benefits which are central to the products in the Balance line, the company said in a statement.
The Balance line forms part of Luker’s wider portfolio, which now has a fresh look with new packaging for the foodservice range.
The wider portfolio and packaging - split into Regions, Heritage Recipes, Maracas and Balance - honours Luker’s connection to origin and commitment to sustainability. It gives customers access to some of the finest chocolate in Colombia, with premium, ethical and now, even more functional couvertures.
Paul Morris, Luker’s European sales lead, said: “Oat milk is extremely popular with consumers who are trying to cut down their dairy consumption, as well as those who just love the taste! The smoothness of the milk is a great match for our fine Colombian cocoa, which together create a delicious plant-based alternative to premium milk chocolate.
“More broadly, the launch of our Balance line reflects what we are seeing in market – we expect the demand for healthier products, which are also indulgent, to remain strong.”
