Above Food Corp., a vertically integrated plant-based food brand, has built an oat supply chain through the acquisition of two oat-based food brands, Only Oats and Culcherd.
“Oats are winning the plant-based dairy battle, so having a platform that has custody over the entire supply chain for the finest oats globally makes tremendous sense for us,” said Above Food Brands president and co-founder Martin Williams.
Only Oats (Saskatoon, Sask.) produces oat-based ingredients and consumer products. Toronto-based Culcherd is a 100 per cent organic, premium, plant-based dairy company producing artisanal plant-based dairy products.
With these acquisitions, Above Food completes the value chain of its oats platform. The company has also begun construction on a gluten-free facility in Regina.
