Mars launches vegan chocolate drink Mars Oat

Chocolate producer Mars has expanded its vegan range by launching the new Mars Oat drink, following the release of Galaxy and Bounty drinks last year.

The confectionery company Mars has launched a dairy-free drink called Mars Oat. This comes after the company launched dairy-free drink versions of Galaxy and Bounty bars last year.

The milkshake is registered with the Vegan Trademark and certified by the Vegan Society. According to the Vegan Trademark, the drink is made with oat milk and is “bursting with a rich chocolatey taste and a hint of caramel”, with no added sugar.

This latest drink is available in Asda stores across the UK and will retail at £1.50 for 150ml.

However, this is not the only product from the company as Mars released three vegan Galaxy bars last year, flavoured ‘caramelised hazelnut’, ‘caramel and sea salt’ and ‘smooth orange’, with packaging made from wood fibre, making it sustainable. Its Bounty milkshake is made from coconut milk and Galaxy drink from oat milk.

Oat milk is the most preferred dairy alternative, due to its flavour, taste and texture being similar to cow’s milk. 

Mars is also working on “transforming” the way the company is running by incorporating sustainable measures like replacing plastic packaging, advancing global research on food safety challenges and how it purchases raw materials.

The conglomerate has laid out how much greenhouse emissions, water and land it aims to reduce by 2025, and has set ambitions they would like to achieve each year.
