Why go for a single origin choice in your drinks offer?
More than ever, people are inspired by the stories behind the products they buy. A recent study1 shows that 56% of global consumers make a purchase based on brand story alone. And a cultural celebration of a single origin, is definitely one of those stories that speaks to a lot of interested consumers. Flavours from around the world tell a story that’s authentic, unique. Like the hot chocolate drink Van Houten Santo Domingo, made with organic cocoa beans grown in the Dominican Republic. These cocoa beans have grown in a tropical climate with an extremely rich trade heritage. And it’s because they are so influenced by a combination of tropical winds, migrating high temperatures and humidity that they provide such an intense, roasted flavour profile that’s incredibly balanced at the same time.
