ROCHELLE PARK, N.J.– Better Than Milk, one of the leading brands in plant-based, shelf-stable powdered alternative milk beverages for more than 50 years, brings refreshing and exciting news to grocery store aisles with the introduction of its Organic Ready-to-Drink Alternative Milk Beverages. Available in five refreshing varieties – Almond Original, Unsweetened Almond, Oat, Rice + Calcium and Hazelnut Rice – all five creamy and delicious flavors are organic, vegan, certified gluten free, Non-GMO Verified and free from dairy, lactose, soy, sulfites, carrageenan, cholesterol and artificial flavors, and are debuting at the Specialty Food Association’s Fancy Food Summer Show in NYC.
Better Than Milk Organic Alternative Milk Drinks are made from organic nuts and gluten-free grains with spring water sourced from a free-flowing spring 450 meters above sea level in the Lessini Mountains of Northern Italy. The packaging is recyclable and is FSC responsibly sourced, including their plastic caps, which are made from renewable sources. Each 33.8 FL OZ carton contains four servings of smooth and delicious tasting alternative milk and each flavor is perfect for guzzling straight from the carton (no judgement!), taking on-the-go, enjoying with a favorite cereal, using in recipes and adding to smoothies.
Better Than Milk Organic Alternative Milk Drinks have been overwhelmingly received and will be entering distribution in the supermarket and specialty natural channels this fall.
“Consumers of all ages and lifestyles are increasingly incorporating plant-based alternatives into their diets as part of their efforts to lead more health-focused lives. The plant-based beverages market continues to grow year after year, spurred mainly by consumers seeking lactose-free, dairy-free, and plant-based/vegan options to add to or replace traditional dairy. Better Than Milk Organic Alternative Milk Beverages provide consumers with truly great-tasting premium beverages that are convenient and shelf-stable,” said Steven Grossman, president and CEO of PANOS brands. “With the demonstrated growth and continued momentum toward these health trends, there couldn’t be a better time to introduce Better Than Milk Organic Alternative Milk Beverages nationwide.”
About Better Than Milk
Better Than Milk is a growing line of dairy free alternatives for consumers with dietary needs, allergies and those seeking a premium plant-based beverage.

The new Better Than Milk Organic ready-to drink beverages are perfect for modern, on-trend, environmental and health conscious consumers who don’t want traditional dairy milk and don’t want another boring milk alternative with a lot of junk in it to supplement for low quality ingredients.
