The a2 Milk Co. has a new product line: a2 Milk Coffee Creamer.
The first new product offering since coming to the U.S. from Australia in 2015, a2 Milk Coffee Creamer comes in two flavors—Sweet Cream and Creamy Vanilla—both made with five natural ingredients, including real a2 Milk and cream.
The a2 Milk Coffee Creamers join the Boulder, Colorado-based company’s a2 Milk products, which offer real dairy milk that is said to be easier on digestion and may help some avoid discomfort. The new creamers soon will be available in more than 1,000 grocery stores across the U.S, including Sprouts Farmers Market, ShopRite, Hy-Vee and Earth Fare.
“This is truly an exciting moment for The a2 Milk Co.,” says Blake Waltrip, CEO. “Every day, we hear from people across the country who are able to drink milk again, thanks to a2 Milk. Now we’re broadening ways for coffee drinkers to enjoy real dairy by adding our a2 Milk Coffee Creamers to their morning routine. Coffee creamer was one of our top requested products by our consumers.”
The debut of the new product follows the company’s recent milestone of reaching national geographic distribution in the U.S. after signing on with Kroger.
The company’s total U.S. milk distribution is more than 13,100 stores operated by 80 major grocers across the country. a2 Milk is available at retailers including select Costco and Walmart locations, Ahold, Albertsons/Safeway, Food Lion, The Fresh Market, H-E-B, Kroger, Market Basket, Meijer, Publix, ShopRite, Sprouts Farmers Market, Target, Wegmans and Whole Foods Market.
Published research suggests that a2 Milk may help avoid stomach discomfort in some people because the milk comes from cows that naturally produce only the natural A2 protein and no A1.
The a2 Milk Co. works with local U.S. dairy farmers to identify cows that only naturally produce the A2 protein type and process their milk separately, making it possible for some with sensitivities to enjoy real cows’ milk. The company pays its farmers a premium to help them improve their profitability and reinvest in their farms. All of the its U.S. farms are certified by Validus for animal welfare standards.
