Back in 1990s, Oatly was founded based on a Swedish research from Lund University by Bjorn Oste. The company patented its enzyme technology that copies nature's own and turns fiber rich oats into nutritional liquid food that is perfectly designed for humans. Today, Oatly owns 4 registered patents tied to its manufacturing process.
Oatly is a vegan food brand which produces alternatives to dairy products from oats. Besides oat milk, the company also produces oat-based frozen dessert and yogurt. Oats used in the manufacturing process are from oat factories located in Sweden, the Netherlands and the U.S. and use locally sourced oats in the production.
The company's mission is to always deliver products with maximum nutritional value and minimal environmental impact.
