Everything we make is vegan. And everything we do champions plant-based consumption and sustainable production, not just for the sake of people’s health but also for the future of our planet and the well-being of coming generations.
When it comes to oat farming, our Swedish oat suppliers are fully compliant with the rules for conventional and organic farming. For conventional farming, both artificial fertilisers and manure are common practice.
Our organically farmed oats are KRAV certified — the most ambitious third-party organic certification in Sweden (read more about KRAV here: www.krav.se/english). Organic farming aims to create a closed-circuit based on nutrient recycling, so manure and residue from animals (such as bone meal) are approved as organic fertilisers. Artificial fertilisers are forbidden in organic farming.
All Oatly products meet the criteria for vegan labelling according to both The Vegan Society and Animal Rights in Sweden. They are 100% vegan and contain no traces of animal products.
To get even smarter around all of this, we’ve engaged in several research projects on sustainable production and consumption. And have financed a research study on sustainable farming conducted by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences that examines, among other things, the use of green fertilisers.
Everyone at Oatly imagines a future food system with the lowest possible environmental impact. And that demands a major shift from an animal based agricultural system to a much more sustainable plant-based one.
We think our vegan products made from oats is a part of that change. Hope you enjoy them. And thanks for listening.
Because we place special demands on the cleanliness of our raw oats, we are able to guarantee that Oatly products contain less than 100 ppm (mg/kg product) gluten from wheat, rye and barley. This is comparable to products that may be labeled “Very low gluten” and which are allowed to contain max 100 ppm gluten. We guarantee the same limits for all of the products in our range. Products that are labeled “gluten-free” may not contain more than 20 ppm gluten, and the gluten content in Oatly’s products is not this low.
US: Our products in the US are made from certified gluten-free oats and are labeled gluten-free.
In our manufacturing process, enzymes are added to break down the starch in the oats into maltose, natural sugar. The enzymes are natural since they also occur naturally in the gastrointestinal tract.
We have chosen to be a transparent food company. Amongst other things, this means that our website shows where our ingredients come from. We purchase products from companies who comply with our requirements in areas such as quality, price and delivery performance. Our procedures and purchasing policy comply with the recommendations of the UN and the Swedish government regarding business relationships with other countries. We consider issues such as how we can create a better environment, how we can reduce the environmental impact of the food industry and how we can improve people’s health by reducing animal-based food intake.
