Oatmilk continues to grow in popularity as a dairy-free alternative. That momentum continues as a major foodservice chain, Dunkin’, has added oatmilk to its beverage menu at locations nationwide.
Launching with Planet Oat, a market leader in oatmilk, Dunkin’ is now one of the first national quick service restaurant brands to make oatmilk available at 100% of its US locations. Planet Oat Oatmilk is a plant-based dairy alternative that starts with oats and water, which is then blended with vitamins, minerals and other ingredients for a creamy texture and light sweetness.
The oatmilk can be added to any Dunkin’ beverage in place of milk, almondmilk or cream. This includes Dunkin’s new Iced Oatmilk Latte – made with rich, handcrafted espresso and creamy oatmilk – as well as its full lineup of hot, iced, and frozen coffee, espresso drinks and specialty beverages such as Chai and Matcha Lattes.
“Dunkin’ is proud to stand apart as the brand that democratizes trends and finds new and innovative ways to keep Americans running,” says Jill Nelson, vice president, marketing strategy at Dunkin’. “Bringing Planet Oat Oatmilk to Dunkin’ locations across the country is another way we are reinforcing our commitment to providing guests with more choices to customize their favorite coffee and espresso drinks.”
“Americans are always looking for new beverage options that easily fit into their dietary needs and specific tastes,” adds Chris Ross, senior vice president, marketing and R&D at HP Hood LLC, the manufacturer of Planet Oat. “The launch of Planet Oat as the official oatmilk of Dunkin’ represents an exciting moment for both of our companies and gives coffee lovers everywhere the flexibility to transform their favorite drinks into delicious, plant-based alternatives. We look forward to helping Dunkin’ continue to bring new choices to its menu, and serve millions of people oatmilk options that are inclusive for all.”
