Swedish vegan company Oatly has been forced to expand their manufacturing facilities due to rapidly “growing demand” from customers looking for dairy-free options.

When it comes to dairy-free milks, Oatly’s oat milk range is hard to beat thanks to their taste and the ethos of the company. Oatly make their products from GMO-free Swedish oats, and their range is 100% vegan, which is in line with Oatly’s pledge to deliver products with “maximum nutritional value and minimal environmental impact”.

Those who have ditched the dairy and are looking for suitable alternatives to cows milk to use in hot drinks often opt for Oatly’s Barista Edition Oat Milk which is perfect for hot drinks and creating creamy, foamy lattes.

In fact, the drink is so popular that you may have noticed its usual spot on the supermarket shelf has been empty in recent weeks. And there’s a good reason for that…

Speaking to LIVEKINDLY, the independent vegan company said that even though the stock is arriving in the UK weekly, products are rapidly selling out, a trend which they are seeing in many European countries.

But fear not oat milk fans because the company has revealed they are exploring long-term solutions to meet the ever-increasing demand, and are also expanding their current factory to be able to produce their products in greater volumes.

Oat milk has soared in popularity in recent years, and has now even been added to Starbucks’ UK menu.
