Nutrition and wellbeing

At Costa Coffee, we just love great tasting food and drinks made from good ingredients.

Our commitment to your wellbeing

Costa Coffee flat white with coffee beansWe’re committed to providing credible healthier choices and have a long-term plan to improve the nutritional balance of our menu.

As one part of this commitment, since 2015 we have supported Public Health England’s (PHE) 20% by 2020 sugar reduction programme in food and the 20% by 2021 sugar reduction programme in milk-based drinks.

While our core coffee range contains no added sugar, we have made some significant changes to the rest of the drinks menu through reformulation, introducing more healthier alternatives and reviewing our portion sizes.

Overall, we have achieved a total sugar reduction of just over 30% across all cup sizes and milk options in our drinks range.

In 2020, we launched a mini cup size with a wider range of great tasting sugar free syrups and we're proud to have achieved a sugar reduction of 20% in our hot chocolate powder since 2015 as well as greatly reducing the calories in our Chai Latte through reformulation and using semi-skimmed milk as the default option. In the medium size, this is just over a 100kcal reduction to 215kcal per serving, well below PHE’s calorie cap guidance of 300kcal per single serve drink.


Our Latte has no added sugar and, when served in a small size with skimmed milk, contains just 70 calories
