Vitasoy (traditional Chinese: 維他奶; pinyin: [wéi tā nǎi] error: {{lang}}: missing language tag (help)) (Template:Sehk) is a brand of beverages and desserts in Hong Kong. With a history of more than 60 years, it belongs to the Vitasoy International Holdings Limited based in Hong Kong.

"Vitasoy" products were centered on the high-protein soymilk drink that the company first produced. Over the years the company expanded beyond the soy drink products and started to produce a wide variety of beverages. Some of them (such as the fruit juice) were given the derivative brand name "Vita".

History

Vitasoy was founded by Dr. K. S. Lo in 1940 in Hong Kong with door-to-door delivery of the milk alternative. The company ceased operations from 1941 to 1945 during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong. It re-emerged after the war was over.

The international expansion came in the 1980s and 1990s as soy based products found a market outside of Asia. Yvonne Lo, daughter of the founder established Vitasoy USA Inc. in 1979.
