Califia Farms is now rolling out its Oat Barista Blend into IGA supermarkets and independent retailers nationwide, following the success of its launch across cafés – including the Toby’s Estate network – last year. 

 The oat milk is made from whole rolled oats and is unsweetened, with no added sugar, gums, dairy or soy. 

The popularity for plant-based milk continue to rise in Australia and globally, accounting for seven per cent consumption across the country in 2019. 

“Dairy-free milk is huge right now as more people have become aware of the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet,” said Califia Farms Australia national business manager Dan Kaplan.

“While oat is still relatively new in the market compared to others like almond and soy, it’s fast becoming the new favourite with consumers, particularly as it’s one of the most sustainable plant milks on the market.” 

Califia Farms Oat Barista Blend is now available in IGA and independent retailers in Australia, along with cafés and coffee shops, for RRP $4.80.
