New Member Spotlight


Thirty years ago there was no Oatly, just some researchers at a university in a country mistakenly known for polar bears roaming the streets, nerding out on ways to turn oats into a milk alternative and creating a production process to keep all the beta-glucans (big, scientific word for soluble fiber) intact so that we could go crazy making all kinds of delicious and sustainable oatmilks and Oatgurt and oat-based non-dairy frozen desserts and then share all of this oat history through the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association.

The original idea behind Oatly was to find a way to make a nutritious milk for people who didn’t like cow’s milk or were unwilling to use it for personal reasons. Today, the idea of producing a milk directly from oats instead of first feeding oats to a cow and letting the cow process them into milk sounds remarkably sustainable but back when we started in the 1990s most people thought we were crazy. That’s cool, everything has its time. https://www.oatly.com/int/
