Vegan startup NüMilk recently erected an innovative milk machine inside of two Whole Foods Markets in New Jersey. Spotted by Instagrammer @thesimplyveganlife, the machine offers customers two options for purchasing organic almond milk: in a bottle ($3.99) stored in its refrigerator section or by filling an empty bottle with freshly made almond milk dispensed from the machine. The concept is currently in its pilot stages and is a symbol of the continuing innovation present in the plant-based sector. In addition to almonds, entrepreneurs worldwide have crafted dairy-free alternatives from a wide array of plant-sources, including a persimmon pulp-based ice cream line made by New Zealand brand My Goodness! and a sesame seed-based milk line created by Chicago startup Hope & Sesame.
