New Jersey Plant Opening Should Put an End to Oat Milk Shortage

Shortages of oat milk at U.S. coffee shops may soon be a thing of the past.

Oatly Inc. expects to begin operations at a new plant in Millville, New Jersey, later this month, according to Sara Fletcher, a spokeswoman for the Malmo, Sweden-based company. The factory will increase volume as much as tenfold.

The dairy alternative has seen shortages in the past year as baristas adopted it in upscale coffee shops, some of which couldn’t get a hold of products for weeks while others were on waiting lists. Last month, Starbucks Corp. began selling Elmhurst barista edition oat milk in five of its U.S. cafes.
