Asian food and beverage company Yeo Hiap Seng Limited (Yeo’s) and Swedish plant-based oat brand Oatly have announced the opening of their joint oat milk facility.
The facility, which initially opened in July, is located at Yeo’s Senoko Way site in Singapore.
This is Oatly’s first production venture outside Europe and North America.
The site will produce Oatly’s oat milk for the Asian market and will support the brand’s growth in the region.
David Zhang, Asia president of Oatly, said: “Despite ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, we are thrilled that the production facility opened in July. Oatly is grateful to Yeo’s and the Singapore government for their unwavering support during this challenging time.”
He continued: “This new facility will help drive Oatly’s expansion into new and existing markets in Asia and support us to drive the shift from dairy to oat milk for the benefit of people and planet”.
The opening celebration saw Alvin Tan, Singapore’s minister of state for trade and industry, touring the facility.
