Delivery of a world class sustainable manufacturing plant

Working closely with our key client, Integrated Food Projects, Vision Zero Consult were involved in the management and delivery of Oatly’ s first UK factory, one of the largest plant-based dairy factories in the world.

The project is the culmination of 12 months’ work to convert an existing 45,000m2 warehouse unit that will provide a facility capable of producing 300 million litres of oat-based drink per year, with the capacity to grow to 450 million litres in the future.

Sustainability is at the heart of the project and of the Oatly and IFP business, with efficient use of resources and minimal negative impact – Oatly is aiming to reduce their climate footprint per litre of product by 70% and align that ambition with a 1.50C climate pathway.

The UK factory is part of a wider initiative from Oatly to build ‘future factories’, with efficient use of resources and minimal negative impact on the planet. Oatly is seeking to ensure that it uses 100% renewable energy for its production by 2029, reduce its water withdrawal by at least half from 4.3 litres of water per litre of Oatly in 2019, and eliminate all production waste to landfill.
