Carmit launches vegan snacks

Private-label firm Carmit Candy Industries is to launch its new vegan line of milk chocolate snacks, coins and buttons.

The new product line is not only lactose-free but fully dairy-free and gluten-free, addressing leading allergy concerns with sweet indulgence.

“Most vegan chocolate is dark chocolate, but Carmit’s chocolatiers have developed a ‘milk’ chocolate without dairy or milk,” said Adrian Sagman, VP of International Sales and Marketing for Carmit.

The dairy-free chocolate line comes in two types, white chocolate and standard light brown milk-style chocolate. Both are available in a range of sizes and shapes for each target market. Tablets are available in 85 and 100g, snack bars of 35g and buttons of 25g bags and coins in Netlons. All products are available for private label branding. All products in the line are kosher certified.

“The real challenge in developing this vegan chocolate line was to mimic the taste and texture of creamy milk chocolate, without compromising on texture or flavor, or by using synthetic ingredients, dairy or milk,” said Sagman. “The Carmit R&D team used simple, clean and natural ingredients, testing a range of raw materials and ingredients, in different quantities, to achieve an authentic milk chocolate look & feel.”

“As experts in gluten-free and dairy-free confectionery, it was important for us to ‘break the code’ of vegan milk-style chocolate that has exemplary flavor,” said Sagman. “Vegans and consumers who suffer from dairy allergies deserve a tasty chocolate snack.”
