Glebe Farm is delighted to announce the launch of their newly installed, multi-million-pound oat milk plant at Glebe Farm. This plant will produce the company’s first UK made, gluten and dairy free, oat milk drink, PureOaty. With a daily capacity of 50,000 litres, Glebe Farm is now also able to consider private label commissions.
Glebe Farm Foods commenced work on the multimillion-pound extension to their existing gluten free oat production site at the end of 2019, in response to the burgeoning sales of their gluten free oat drink as Rebecca Rayner, Managing Director of Glebe Farm Foods explains:
“We are Europe’s biggest grower, miller and producer of certified gluten free oats, supplying over 30 countries worldwide with British grown oat products of the highest quality. Our seed to shelf philosophy is central to our business and as the oat category, especially oat drinks, continues to evolve, it was crucial that we invested in our site. This several million pounds investment is designed to future proof our business. The building and machinery have all been built to our specification and will give us increased capacity to produce our oat drink to meet this demand.”
In the UK alone, oat drinks are showing strong year on year growth in retail, up 72.9% according to Kantar data and predictions are for a very bright future in foodservice for this non-dairy alternative.
