I personally enjoy oat milk and I'm not a vegan or vegetarian, it goes well in tea
Fair enough , not got an issue with that or those that are vegetarian or even vegan for their own reasons.
Had a very interesting conversation with a BBC reporter who is vegetarian. He said usually farmers are quite offended and show distain before asking the reason why, his reason is because he doesn't like the taste or texture.
I've no issue with others choices as long as they are based on facts and correct information not just something they have made up.

Marketing. If you say your product is gluten free, you imply others have gluten in them. It's like I'll sell you my "dolphin friendly" wheat if you want. Or "our dishwashers *won't* rip your face off". Find something perceived as bad, so arsenic or lead, that has absolutely no link to your product. Say you product doesn't contain it. Imply others do. Then ask competitors if their product contains it.....about four seconds before you print a story about how ace your product CT is because it doesn't (IE never) had it in. It's the new standard BBC journalism method.
The person that designed our website put on there that our Jersey milk was 94% fat free. You wouldn't believe the number of people that were either surprised because they believed Jersey milk was high in fat, or wanted to know why we took the fat out of it, when in reality it is just as it comes out of the cow. Initial amusement in dealing with stupidity soon became tiresome so we asked for the website to be changed.

Ultimately people will need to eat less meat if the whole world takes on western meat eating levels which they generally are, especially in China etc.

Imo in the future authentic farm raised meats will be a luxury, I'll be happy with that.


If the World does not develop, that may well be achieved. However, it won't, people are getting richer and the demand for better nutrition and diets will also grow, meat included.

I agree on the point about farm raised meats, that already appear to be doing well.

Never underestimate how oblivious the consumer is to real facts. It isn't even their fault, they're constantly bombarded with marketing bollox and it's only getting worse.

We had another asking for bacon without e numbers (because e numbers are bad for you, right?) I told him the e numbers were preservatives and were necessary for food safety. So he asked if we sold bacon without preservatives, which we do. Its called pork. He didn't realise that bacon was preserved pork.
The trouble is that people believe the likes of oatly with their spurious claims because its on the internet, so must be true.

There are other oat processors in the UK developing Oatmilk. Not sure they will take kindly to this Oatly news.
I wouldnt be surprised if the proposed factory is nothing more than a distribution and packaging plant which puts imported oatmilk from bulk containers to cartons. they seem hellbent on using Scandinavian oats.
If it’s 60,000 tonnes of organic oats, as mentioned in an earlier post, I’m guessing they’ll struggle to get that amount exclusively from the UK.

So is this oatly said to be organic AND vegan ? Because I can't see how that is possible or sustainable
For the record I have absolutely no problems with anyone who chooses not to eat meat etc but NOT those who think they can survive without livestock

My carton of fresh orange has a vegan logo on it. For those who might think it had meat in it. Somehow.
