UK: Arla extends Lactofree range
Arla Foods has extended its Lactofree dairy range in the UK.
The flavoured yoghurts are available in raspberry, strawberry and a natural variety, and have been developed for consumers that are lactose intolerant, the company said today (27 November).
Louise Barton, brand manager for Lactofree said: "Consumer demand for a lactose-free yogurt has been extremely high and we are thrilled to be able to meet this with the launch of Lactofree yogurts.
"Lactose intolerance can mean people have to restrict their diet and we hope this development goes on step further to giving those with LI the freedom to eat exactly what they want."
Arla launched a Lactofree semi-skimmed dairy drink in 2006 and said it has plans for further product development.
