Speaking to leading food outlet Speciality Food magazine, Oatly U.K. general manager, Ishen Parlan, said as a result of this awareness, consumers know they can have a direct impact on the health of the planet ‘through the products they choose to buy’.

Parlan said that before, consumers mainly opted for dairy-free alternatives for dietary or health reasons. Now, many choose them for sustainability.

The change has been, until now, led by Millennials and Generation Z. But all age groups are now seeking out dairy alternatives. Parlan said: “A massive 32 percent of households buy dairy-free milk now.”
