“Success has been evident in both the widespread acceptance of Sesame Milk by distributors and retailers, and good initial unaided retail velocity, as well as adoption by leading independent cafes. This year, we added distribution to major retailers in the United States and Canada, from Sprouts to Kroger to Loblaws. »

Hope and Sesame sesame milkwere joined by Barista Blend Sesame Milk, launching in the second quarter of 2022. This line, Stamberger says, took an additional two years to formulate and perfect, and was created in tandem with a panel of master baristas: “Our goal, which we achieved, was to equal the performance of dairy milk and oat milk in hot and iced beverage applications, including frothing, steaming, foaming and creating ‘great latte art.’

Hope and Sesame Barista Blend has already won a number of industry and consumer awards for its performance and taste, from the 2022 World Plant-Based Awards (Best Plant-Based Drink), CoffeeFest (Best Product) to Good Housekeeping’s 2022 Best Coffee Awards. (Award for Best Novel Coffee Creamer).
