Milk In A Stick is a no-additive, shelf stable creamer in an innovative portion control stick. The clean label is healthful and has one ingredient. The sticks are easy-to-open, pour and use. No refrigeration is required. The slender package design is strong and flexible, offering significant space savings.
“We listened to our customers and continue to develop solutions to overcome the challenges of offering hot beverage service,” said Paul Chmielewski, international sales and marketing manager at Lakeland Dairies. “Milk In A Stick offers a convenient option without the hassle or waste associated with fresh milk. It takes up less space with its slim design.”
TGI Fridays became one of the first national chains to offer Milk In A Stick in more than 500 restaurants in the U.S.
“We partnered with Lakeland Dairies to offer something exciting. This is a game-changing portion control creamer with its clean label ingredient. It’s a great fit and adds to our extensive portfolio of products for the growing beverage occasion,” said Steve Cohn, director of marketing at Diamond Crystal Brands. “We are ecstatic industry leader TGI Fridays sees the value Milk In A Stick provides. It’s a coffee creamer with a pulse on changing consumer tastes.”
The 10-ml., minimally-packaged, clean-ingredient beverage enhancers used primarily to flavor coffee and tea are being sold in the U.S. through foodservice, convenience and office coffee service distributors everywhere.
They are available now in bulk 240-count cases of creamer, whole milk and reduced-fat milk.
