Slate Chocolate Milk + Aunt Jemima Rebrands – Xtalks Food Podcast Ep. 2

Slate Chocolate Milk + Aunt Jemima Rebrands – Xtalks Food Podcast Ep. 2

Sydney tells the team about a new chocolate milk called Slate, which was designed for adults, in Episode 2 of the Xtalks Food Podcast. Tune into this episode to hear a clip from Sydney’s interview with Manny Lubin, one of the co-founders of Slate, who shares why chocolate milk was in need of a rebrand.

In this episode, Mira also discusses Aunt Jemima’s rebranding to Pearl Milling company in an effort to eliminate the company’s role in perpetuating racial stereotypes. The podcasters debate whether this move is enough of a response from the brand in the context of the Black Lives Matter movement and racial inequality in North America.
