Lake District Dairy Co. sets new drinks standard with the launch of Frumoo

First Milk's award winning Lake District brand continues its expansion into new dairy categories with its latest addition to the range, Lake District Dairy Co. Frumoo.  The new fresh British milk and real fruit drink will launch on supermarket shelves in September and will initially be available in two flavour blends; strawberry & blackberry, and raspberry & blueberry.

Lake District Dairy Co. Frumoo brings tasty and wholesome nutrition credentials to the dairy drinks category, using fresh milk sourced from British farmers, as well as real fruit.  This combination provides consumers with a new, more nutritious on-the-go alternative to other flavoured milks, milkshakes or smoothies, currently in shopping baskets in Britain.

First Milk's marketing director David Young says; "Lake District Dairy Co. Frumoo is exactly what consumers are asking for; great tasting, wholesome new flavour solutions to a category currently awash with artificial flavourings and UHT products."

"Consumers will find Frumoo is not only refreshing to taste but, in terms of nutrition, the product is free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, and contains fresh British milk and real fruit.  We think these factors not only appeal to current fans of on-the-go drinks options, but also people who consider themselves to be more 'food conscious', who are looking for great-tasting, nutritious food produced sustainably."

"Parents will also find that Frumoo is a great solution for the kids' lunches; the 230ml bottle fits inside perfectly inside a lunchbox.  Frumoo can even be frozen beforehand, reducing waste and keeping the lunchbox cold"
