sproud 4 products 600wDeveloped in Sweden, Sproud is already the go-to vegan milk alternative with consumers and baristas across Europe. Sproud is on a mission to bring together consumers who are looking for a healthy dairy alternative and care about the planet, by creating a product that focuses on both taste and sustainability.

The pea-protein milk comes in a stylish, eco-friendly packaging that stands out from its competitors and contains no dairy, soy, nuts, or gluten and is also non-GMO. Sproud’s taste and consistency mimics traditional dairy, making it perfect to blend in coffees, teas, oatmeals, acai bowls, and more. All of Sproud’s products have five times the protein of almond milk and three times the protein of oat milk per serving.

Sproud is sustainable and at the forefront of carbon footprint reduction. It is made from the remarkable pea which uses less water than traditional dairy or almonds and has an impressive 365-day shelf life. The plant-friendly product does not need to be refrigerated during its journey from production to store shelves, reducing the typical refrigerated product’s carbon footprint by a third and significantly reducing unnecessary waste.

Sproud will continue to roll out to additional retailers nationwide and is currently available at Loblaw, Quality Foods, Georgia Main Food Group, Whole Foods, Goodness Me,, Country Grocer and many more.

This family-run, local food producer sweetens products mostly with natural sweeteners. The products have no traces of gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs and soy, as well as fish and shellfish.

Wise Bites began production of Soft Mini Cookie shelf-stable category late last fall, and are already producing two more flavours ꟷ Soft Mini Chocolate and Soft Mini Lemon ꟷ to accompany the original Soft Mini Apple and Soft Mini Raspberry.
