Wide Open Agriculture (WOA), a regenerative food and agriculture company, has announced plans to open a production facility to manufacture oat milk products in Western Australia.
The production facility, backed by a A$5 million ($3.3 million) grant and located near an existing pilot plant, will produce-ready to-drink oat milk using WOA’s lupin-based “Buntine Protein”.
WOA said it intended to compete globally with conventional dairy through a combination of high protein content and creamy texture
The new facility is projected to potentially increase WOA’s domestic production capabilities, enhance manufacturing efficiencies, and reduce costs, the firm said in a statement.
Commenting on the move, WOA CEO Jay Albany said: “As we move forward, we’re more excited than ever to see our plans materialise, harnessing this opportunity to champion a new era of sustainable, innovative, and delicious plant-based nutrition”.
