Revolutionising the Beverage Landscape with Mighty Drinks
In the dynamic and ever-evolving landscape of the beverage industry, Mighty Drinks emerges as a trailblazer, rewriting the narrative of what a beverage can be. Founded five years ago in Leeds by the visionary duo, Tom and Nick Watkins, Mighty Drinks embarked on a mission to redefine the concept of beverages, particularly in the context of sustainability and nutritional innovation.
At the heart of Mighty Drinks’ revolutionary approach is a commitment to providing a sustainable alternative to traditional dairy milk. The brand’s founders recognised the need for change in an industry often marked by conventionalism. In response, they harnessed the power of an unconventional yet highly sustainable ingredient—yellow split peas. This bold choice not only reflects their commitment to environmental responsibility but also sets a new standard for the industry.
Yellow split peas, previously an unfamiliar ingredient in the UK but known in the US, became the cornerstone of Mighty Drinks’ products. This ingredient not only contributes to the brand’s unique identity but also addresses sustainability concerns. The brand’s emphasis on yellow split peas as a key ingredient signifies a departure from the status quo, challenging industry norms and sparking a revolution in beverage formulation.
In navigating the complex interplay of taste, nutrition, and sustainability, Mighty Drinks has not only created a brand but a movement—one that encourages consumers to question traditional beverage choices and opt for options that align with their values. As they continue to push boundaries and redefine industry standards, Mighty Drinks stands as a testament to innovation, sustainability, and the power of a pioneering vision in the world of beverages.

A Leap in Innovation – Mighty Drinks’ Oat Milk Powder
Building on their success with pea-based products, Mighty Drinks expanded their range to include oat milk powder. Launched in February of this year, the oat milk powder addresses key challenges in the industry, including 90% less water content for more efficient transportation and storage. The innovative resealable feature not only reduces packaging use by 90% but also ensures freshness for 24 months, a significant advancement over traditional liquid milk products.
The Importance of Packaging Design: A Cohesive Brand Identity
Mighty Drinks places paramount importance on the role of packaging design in communicating its brand message effectively. Understanding that the first interaction consumers have with their products is through the packaging, the brand has meticulously crafted a design strategy that ensures consistency and brand recognition. This vision spans across both their liquid milks and powders. Overseen by the dedicated brand team, the packaging design is characterised by a seamless blend of colour, clarity, and simplicity.
The consistency in design elements serves as a visual cue, allowing consumers to instantly identify Mighty Drinks products on the shelf. Whether it’s the creamy brown hues associated with their oat milk or the vibrant green tones reflecting the sustainability of their pea-based drinks, the packaging maintains a harmonious visual language. This uniformity is intentional, aiming to create a cohesive brand identity that resonates with consumers.
Moreover, the simplicity of the design is intentional and strategic. By focusing on clarity and specific nutritional information, Mighty Drinks ensures that their products are accessible to a broad audience. The packaging acts as an informative tool, offering consumers a quick glance at essential details such as nutritional content and benefits. This approach aligns with the brand’s commitment to demystifying plant-based alternatives, making them not only visually appealing but also easily understandable for consumers from diverse backgrounds.
Future Plans and Continued Collaboration
Mighty Drinks continues to innovate, with plans to develop their milk powders further and introduce new flavours. Their commitment to sustainability is echoed not only in their product range but also in their packaging choices.
