Where does Oatly source its rapeseed oil?

Hi,

I drink Oat milk when I have coffee from cafes these days but I notice you add rapeseed oil to increase the fat in the milk.

Where does the rapeseed come from? Is it organic or do you use pesticides in its production or is it GMO?

Also, it does contain preservatives too. What do these do and are they necessary?

I look forward to hearing your response.

Kind regards

Martin

  • Hey Martin!

    We do indeed. We use rapeseed oil due to its excellent fat composition - high in monounsaturated and low in saturated fats as well as being higher in omega-3 fats than most other plant-based oils. Another advantage is its neutral flavour which lets those delicious creamy oats take centre stage.

    We use Swedish rapeseed oil in most of our products however not organic as its availability in Sweden is very limited. For our organic products we import organic oil from Austria. The supplier of our rapeseed oil is a company called AAK, it’s responsibly sourced and sustainable and you can read more about the company here: https://www.aak.com/sustainability/responsible-sourcing/responsible-sourcing-of-rapeseed/.

    Re preservatives, our drinks do not contain any. Clicking on any picture here https://www.oatly.com/uk/products will tell you the exact ingredient list in each product. You’ll see that we enrich a lot of our drinks with extra vitamins and minerals and the reason for this is to ensure that they are just as nutritious (if not more so) than cow’s milk.

    We hope this helps? Love, Oatly
    Rebecca
