Did you know that milk production ballooned in the last two of decades by over 59%? According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, milk production has increased to 843 million tonnes in 2018. That’s up from 530 million tonnes back in 1998. The world’s current largest milk producer is India, holding 22% of the total global production followed by the U.S., China, Pakistan, and Brazil.

But milk from cows is the history of product. The biggest disruptors in this industry over the next decade will be alternative milk beverage companies using ingredients like soy, chickpeas, or almonds to produce beverages without animal input.

This is still early stage for plant-base milk options with projections for the diary alternatives segment being valued at $35 billion by 2026. Some of this growth is driven by dietary requirements, but it’s largely an increasingly taste preference by consumers. Without further ado, let’s start your milk company name search with the ideas on this list.
