Julie Plant, the managing director of Emmi’s UK business, said the company believed the country’s consumers wanted an “everyday dessert or treat”. There are two varieties in the range: a chocolate and raspberry mousse including chocolate chips; and a triple chocolate mousse which has a liquid caramel core. 

Emmi is targeting adults aged 25-44 years-old. The company has secured listings for the products in retailers including Tesco and Costcutter.

The desserts are sold in packs of three 60g pots, at a recommended retail price of GBP2.39 (US$3.12).

In August, Emmi lowered its forecast for its annual underlying sales after reporting “disappointing” first-half revenues amid challenges facing its European business.

Sales from Emmi’s European division, which excludes Switzerland but takes in the Benelux, Germany, Italy, Austria, the UK and a unit in Spain, fell 2.1% when excluding currency and the impact of recent M&A.

It said the weakness of sterling against the Swiss franc and the euro “negatively impacted” Onken yogurts and the Italian desserts of its A-27 unit in the UK.
