Oatly’s Path to Alt‑Milk World Domination Starts in New Jersey

In April, the Swedish company widely credited with creating the oat milk category opened a $15 million U.S. processing plant in Millville, N.J.—the first outside Europe. The factory produces about 750,000 gallons of oat base—a thick, lightly sweet liquid that’s the main ingredient in all Oatly products—on a monthly basis, according to the company.

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

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.
