Non-dairy yoghurt eaten with a spoon, non-dairy yoghurt drinks and other non-dairy products made from soy, almond, coconut, rice or oats are becoming more and more popular. More than 20% of consumers around the world now consume plant-based yoghurt, whereby yoghurt eaten with a spoon has the largest share of new products.
