Alpro is further expanding its dairy alternative portfolio with a blended coconut and almond drink.

Alpro Coconut & Almond goes on sale nationally from early May (rsp: £1.79/1-litre). It would tap growing demand for coconut and almond in the UK, said Alpro UK marketing ­controller Vicky Upton.

Alpro is now the third-largest brand in UK milk, with sales up £16.4m to just over £74m [Nielsen 52 w/e 11 October 2014].
