Hemp leading the milk alternatives herd

Good Hemp says sales of its hemp-derived milk alternative have increased by 65 per cent in the past year, compared to the 20 per cent year-on-year growth seen in the speciality milk market as a whole.

"We've seen a really huge increase in demand for our hemp milk as shoppers are beginning to understand the benefits over other non-dairy milk alternatives," says Donna Chappelle, Brand Manager of Good Hemp.

"We expect the demand for hemp milk to keep growing, as Britain becomes more aware of this naturally healthy alternative."

Lactose, gluten, nut and dairy-free hemp milk is a natural source of Omega 3, with Good Hemp's milk drink also fortified with calcium and Vitamin D.
