Oatly To Give Away Free Plant-Based Coffee And Tea Across The UK


1 Minutes Read

Popular oat milk brand Oatly will be offering free coffee and tea across the UK this month.

The Swedish company will be setting up pop-up coffee outlets in multiple cities including Brighton, Glasgow, and London among others.*

Oatly will be serving hot drinks with its Skinny, Semi or Whole Oat Drink in these outlets.

‘More sustainable’

“You’ve probably heard that oat drink is more sustainable than dairy, but it doesn’t stop there. The free coffee is created by Extract Coffee Roasters, which provides sustainably sourced and roasted arabica coffee,” said a press release sent to Plant Based News.

“Good & Proper Tea, which sources from both ethical and sustainable tea farms, will help serve up the tea. If you have a sweet tooth, then you’ll be pleased to hear that Oatly is also handing out hot chocolates using its new Chocolate Deluxe Oat Drink.

“Oatly hopes the free giveaway will encourage even more people to make the switch from dairy to oat drink, which produces 73 percent less CO2e emissions than cow’s milk.”
