Founded in 1990, based on Swedish research from Lund University, today, Oatly is Scandinavia’s leading brand of plant-based, dairy-free products. The company’s patented enzyme technology copies nature’s own process and turns fiber-rich oats into nutritional liquid food that is perfectly designed for humans.
Oatly is a pioneer in the Swedish food industry and, through its broad range of healthy and sustainable high-fiber dairy-free oat-based products, empowers consumers to eat in an ethical and environmentally-friendly way.
Verlinvest partnered the existing shareholders, founders and management team, investing in November 2016 through a Joint Venture with China Resources. The partnership will enable further investment in the group’s R&D and production facilities and accelerate the growth of Oatly’s unique brand of simple, natural Swedish liquid oat goodness on a global scale.
