Vegan milk company MALK Organics has expanded to more than 1,200 Kroger stores throughout the country beginning this week. The Texas-based company was the first to launch pecan milk commercially—and produces low sugar, minimal-ingredient nut milks made from sprouted and cold-pressed almonds, cashews, and pecans. Flavors include Maple Pecan, Vanilla Almond, and Unsweetened Cashew. “Seeing more products like MALK Organics on a national level speaks to the need and request for more vegan and dairy-free products,” MALK founder August Vega told VegNews. “Consumers are speaking up and grocers are responding—it’s evident in the size of the non-dairy case alone.” MALK is also available at Whole Foods Market and specialty grocers throughout the Southwest, Rocky Mountain, and Northeast regions. The dairy alternative market is expected to reach $34 billion by 2024, with stores across the country selling vegan mainstays such as Silk, So Delicious, and Califia Farms along with newer brands like Ripple and Veggemo.
