The Barista drink, which comes in a signature gray, white, and black packaging, is one of Oatly’s best-selling items. The launch follows demand from coffee shops for larger volume packs of the carton. The recipe is the same as the smaller packs – a blend of oats, water, rapeseed oil, and salt, as well as vitamins and minerals like calcium, riboflavin, vitamins B12 and D.

“To achieve our mission to be wherever dairy is, we need to make best-in-class products that make the default to cow’s milk defunct,” said Bryan Carroll, General Manager of Oatly UK & Ireland, in a statement. “As part of that work, we continue to extend the formats available of the UK’s best-selling plant-based drink so we can best meet the needs of consumers and our coffee partners alike.”

The rise of Oatly

Established in 1994, Oatly is a hugely popular Swedish food company specializing in dairy alternatives. It’s best known for its oat-based drinks that are used in place of cow’s milk. 

As well as being sold in supermarkets around the world, Oatly is also regularly used in coffee shops, including at Starbucks. 

The company is vocal in its commitment to sustainability. Oat milk is considerably better for the planet than dairy, and Oatly has previously stated its mission is to “remove the burden milk has on the planet in the next 10 years.”

“The reckless pursuit of profits without any consideration for the well-being of the planet and the humans that live here should be considered a crime,” Oatly states on its website. “Companies have as much responsibility as politicians do for building a society that every one of us living in this world can admire.”
