Tim Hortons just introduced almond milk at locations across Canada

Jun 25 2020, 6:27 am

Tim Hortons is now offering almond milk in restaurants across Canada for customers to enjoy in hot or cold drinks.

The plant-based option can be added to brewed or iced coffee and hot teas at no additional cost, while the price for espresso-based beverages, tea lattes, and frozen beverages varies by region.

The decision was based on feedback from “many guests” who had said they wanted a non-dairy alternative from the coffee purveyor, Tim Hortons said.

Silk Almond Beverage is the option now available at coffee shops across the country, thanks to a partnership with Danone.

“We know that many Canadians have a growing desire for plant-based products, both for nutritional benefits and delicious taste,” Jeremy Oxley, Danone’s vice president of marketing, strategy, and insights said in a release.

“In addition to its great taste, [Silk Almond Beverage] is free from dairy lactose, soy, and gluten, plus it provides a number of essential nutrients.”

According to Tim Hortons, research showed that guests who requested a non-dairy alternative would opt for almond more than other alternatives.

And almond milk isn’t the only new addition Tim’s is bringing into restaurants today.

“In addition to adding almond beverage, we’re also responding to feedback by now offering skim milk to our guests,” said Hope Bagozzi, Chief Marketing Officer at Tim Hortons.

“We’re happy to be offering more choices to guests.”

The new offer from Tim Hortons was announced just two days after Starbucks launched its first non-dairy cold foam across the country.
