Pacific Foods brings oat milk to the dinner table with new soups, and pea-protein to plant-based broths

The launch, paired with the simultaneous introduction of Pacific Foods Creamy Plant-Based Broths featuring the almost equally popular pea protein, expands the company’s already sizeable footprint in the fast-growing plant-based food market. 

“The plant-based food market is expected to grow 12% from 2020-2027, so it is important to us that we continue to give soup fanatics a new way to incorporate oat milk, and other nutritious ingredients, into their plant-based diet,”​ Jenna Gavin, senior brand manager, soup & broth, at Pacific Foods, told FoodNavigator-USA.

At the same time, she added, consumers are looking for new ways to follow a plant-based diet, and both oat milk and pea protein offer versatility and nutrition without compromising taste.

“We saw an opportunity to bring versatility and innovation to the space by creating the first-ever Creamy Oat Milk Soup and the first liquid broth to incorporate pea protein with our Creamy Plant-Based Broths,”​ she said.

She explained, “The decision to use oat milk was also driven by Pacific being a pioneer in bringing oat milk to shelves for the last 25 years.”

Gavin added that the oat milk in Pacific Foods’ Organic Creamy Garden Tomato Oat Milk Soup and Organic Creamy Cumin Carrot Oat Milk Soup makes the finished products “so creamy that you wouldn’t believe they’re not made with dairy milk.”

As for the choice of using pea-protein in the Creamy Plant-Based Broths, Gavin explained that Pacific Foods wanted to meet demand for more protein, which 60% of consumers said they are seeking to add to their diets. But it also wanted to offer an alternative to soy.
