The company was born in 1991, motivated by the idea of improving the almond milk recipe, a traditional drink in Spain, which was usually prepared with almond paste mixed with water and heated in a saucepan. The founders of Nutriops developed an innovative drying process to transform the paste into almond powder which can be easily dissolved in hot or cold water to make an instant almond milk, and marketed it in herbalist’s and health food shops.
The immediate success of this new almond milk defined the EcoMil brand principles, choosing to develop products from organic farming, lactose-free, healthy and nutritious, as an alternative to cow’s milk and also covering the specific needs of vegetarian or vegan diets.
In the mid 90s, Nutriops has become again a pioneer in launching the first organic“ready to drink” almond milk in Tetra Brik with long shelf life.
Nowadays, EcoMil is the leading brand in Europe in the organic almond milk category and is exporting its products to over 50 countries worldwide. All our products are certified organic, dairy-free, lactose-free, and without animal ingredients.
