Plant-based alt-milk start-up Ulu Hye has rolled out its range in selected Woolworth stores across Australia. 

The range is featured in the Health Food aisle with three main flavours – Almond, Hazelnut and Nut (a blend of cashews, almonds and macadamias) – and each 120ml jar can make 3 litres of plant-based milk by simply adding water.

All ingredients used in Ulu Hye’s bases are vegan, paleo, gluten-free, sugar-free, soy-free, and are free of emulsifiers, additives, thickeners, gums and preservatives.

Founded by best friends Heidi Peuten and Vasia Vogias in 2007, Ulu Hye aims to create a sustainable and healthier alternative to store-bought dairy-free milk products, as well as to help reduce the impacts on the environment. 

“Ulu Hye empowers people to decide how they like their milk, the quantity desired, and how often. Gone are the days when you have to pour a half-empty carton down the sink,” said co-founder Vasia Vogias. 

“Our Mylk Bases allow you to make what you need, when you need it. It’s proof you can be kind to your body, bank and the environment all at the same time.”

Ulu Hye also aims to reduce the number of UHT cartons ending up in landfills. Its dairy-free and plastic-free Mylk Bases have prevented more than 800,000 cartons and containers, and this expansion into Woolworths will support the brand to reach the goal of saving 10 million milk cartons in the future.

“Being stocked at Woolworths is a dream come true. Being able to help fight this war on waste through major distribution makes our mission even more possible,” added co-founder, Heidi Peuten.

The product range can be purchased with an RRP of $11.99 per jar at selected Woolworths stores, online and from more than 350 health food stores nationwide.
