The market for plant-based beverages is expected to reach $32bn by 2028, an incredible fivefold growth since 2020. Evolving consumer preferences and concerns for the environment are the key drivers of this incredible spike.
Matthew Algie’s own range of plant-based drinks has been launched under their established café supply brand, Espresso Warehouse. Each flavour has been specially formulated to be used by baristas in a café setting. This means they foam brilliantly for impeccable latte art; they taste delicious whether hot or cold, and they are perfectly compatible with a wide range of coffee machines, including bean-to-cup models.

Brian Macpherson, Director at Espresso Warehouse, said: “The plant-based beverage market is growing rapidly, and our new Espresso Warehouse barista-grade range provides more choice and better performance to café operators than ever before.
“All four products have been uniquely formulated for baristas and perform exceptionally well, whether hot or cold.”
Matthew Algie, famed for being the first company to introduce Fairtrade espresso to the UK 25 years ago, sees this trend for environmentally conscious products as being part of a notable wider movement.
Macpherson continued: “This new range has been created with the same values that have driven Matthew Algie for the last 150 years, providing hospitality businesses with high quality, sustainable products that will help them thrive.”
