The Untitled Oat Drink.
The alternative alternative.
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.
Oats are an iconic part of Scottish heritage.
The Untitled Oat Drink is sold in a glass bottle, which can be re-used without the need for recycling. We collect our used bottles and sanitise them so they can be re-used.
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.
What you don't use won't leave a footprint, so we only use the essential ingredients.
Reusable glass bottles are used for packaging, which can be fully recycled at the end of their 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 use a cargo bike and electric vehicle to deliver oat milk - saving delivery costs, which we can pass on to our customers.
We are helping support local businesses, by providing a cheap and sustainable product. We want your feedback and your input in how to make the alternative alternative.
We are proud to display the origin of our ingredients on the bottle. Untitled Oats founders, Alex and Callum, are directly contactable using the information at the bottom of the page.
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.
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.
We believe the leading brands have lost their way.
One major brand produces their oat milk in another country and ships to the United Kingdom, whilst another uses imported oats, and a third also produces milks from nuts imported from half a world away.
The sustainable alternative is oat milk. And it should be simple.
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. Plastic sheds into our precious waterways. Instead we package in glass for consumers, which we recollect and sterilise to reuse indefinitely.
It is true that glass has a high initial carbon footprint, but with enough reuses the classic glass bottle quickly becomes carbon competitive. Aditionally it is infinitely recyclable, and biologically inert
