The new Benecol OAT products are 100% plant-based and made in Finland from Finnish oats. All the oats we use are gluten-free and sourced directly from Finnish farmers with excellent traceability. The majority of the oats are sourced less than 150 kilometers from our mill. The oats are transported to our brand new factory in Raisio, a small town on the south-western coast of Finland, where all Benecol OAT products are manufactured.
Our new dedicated plant-based site in Raisio produces only oat-based products. All the products from this factory are vegan, dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and nut-free.
Our production is carbon neutral as renewable energy is used as the energy source, i.e. the total load of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will not increase. Renewable energy in the form of wood chips is used for the production of steam and heat in our production facility. We procure electricity free of carbon dioxide, i.e. the production uses non-fossil fuels, and for example the wood has already sequestered carbon dioxide from the air during its growth.
All Benecol OAT products are packaged in unique carton packaging made from primarily plant-based materials.
