    Thanks

  • Hi again Joshua!

    Sorry that it has taken a little while to get back to you.

    We buy our oats from Lantmännen, which is a Swedish cooperative owned by farmers. In terms of sustainable farming and the areas you mention, this is very high on their agenda (as well as ours as a company). The focus areas Lantmännen are working on include cultivation, supply chain responsibility, safe and resource-efficient production as well as development of products with sustainable added values. If you’re interested, you’ll find a more on this in detail on their website https://lantmannen.com/en/ From our end, we’re working closely with to ensure sustainable cultivation of our oats and are also involved in a research project (Scanoats). One part of the project includes developing methods to grow oats in the most sustainable way.

    As far as the demands we place on our suppliers in general from a sustainability standpoint, please read more in our Sustainability Report. You’ll find this in particular on page 37: https://www.oatly.com/uploads/attachments/cjp9hasiz09k8mnqrpxeuwkna-sustainability-report-2017-eng-lores.pdf

    And on the subject of sustainable farming, we’re right now the proud sponsors of a research project together with the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The research project involves finding farmers who are interested in lowering their climate impact by growing grains for human consumption instead of fodder. We’ve been working very closely with one farmer, Adam, in particular the past couple of years, who was interviewed in The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2017/aug/26/wow-no-cow-swedish-farmer-oats-milk-oatly

    I hope this gave you some input on how we’re working in terms of sustainable farming! Please feel free to get back to us if you have further questions.

    All the best,
    Stephanie
