Oat milk has one of the lowest carbon footprints of any milk (plant-based or dairy), yet the leading brands have lost their way.
We are proud to use zero single-use plastic in our product, and base all business operations on a foundation of environmental principles.
The Untitled Oats oat milk is sold in a glass bottle, which can be returned to retailers who give them back to us for reuse.
Oats are an iconic part of Scottish heritage and we make sure to use organic, locally-grown oats in every litre of our signature oat milk.
By sourcing local ingredients, reusing packaging, and using an in-house delivery system, we can make considerable savings which we pass on to our customers.
Our principle ingredients, oats and oil, come from the Scottish Borders and East Lothian. Our oats are organic.
We likewise strive to source ingredients and materials from UK suppliers with British origins where we can and actively seek UK suppliers where we cannot.
We use only the essentials when creating and packaging our oat milk. Anything more is an unnecessary carbon cost.
We are careful to send every one of our glass bottles to be fully recycled at the end of its lifetime.
Plastic pollution is ruining our waterways. All our packaging is entirely free from single-use plastic and we eliminate plastic in our supply chain as far as possible.
We utilize a cargo bike and low emission vehicles to lower our carbon footprint.
We are helping support local businesses, by providing a cheap and sustainable product and we welcome any feedback on how to make the UO alternative an even better alternative.

Additionally, we publish a comprehensive sustainability report each year.
Dairy created from cow's milk has a tremendous environmental impact. Dairy cows emit large amounts of methane and have a considerable ecological hoofprint. Plant-based milks have been demonstrated to be much more environmentally friendly.
We believe the leading oat milk brands have lost their way. One produces overseas then ships to the UK, whilst another imports their oats, and a third uses nuts that are imported from half a world away!
Oat milk is the only major non-dairy milk which can be produced from British grown ingredients. That means fewer air miles, and a cheaper product for our customers.
Oat milk should be the sustainable alternative. With UO, it is.
Other plant-milk producers commonly use tetra pak cartons. Although these can be recycled, they use multiple layers of plastic in conjunction with aluminium and cardboard. As you know, plastic sheds into our precious waterways. Instead, we package in glass which we recollect and sterilise to reuse over and over again.
Glass initially has a high carbon footprint, but with enough reuses the classic glass bottle quickly becomes carbon competitive. Furthermore, glass is infinitely recyclable and biologically inert.
