Hälsa Foods Paves the Way for U.S. Dairy Farmers to Move to Plant-Based Agriculture


NEW YORK, NY

Change is not easily made. It requires the dedication and guidance of those who are truly committed to evolving. Hälsa, maker of 100 percent clean oatmilk yogurts, is one company at the helm of evolving the plant-based sector. Working toward this monumental effort, Hälsa recently planted Scandinavian-style organic oat seeds at the pilot farm for its dairy-to-oat conversion program in upstate New York.

Helena Lumme, President and Co-Founder, Hälsa Foods"At a time when everybody is complaining about the food supply chain problems, Hälsa is actually taking action and doing something about it," shared Co-Founders Helena Lumme and Mika Manninen.

Following its multi-step program built with Scandinavian organic oat scientists and experts, Hälsa is teaching U.S. dairy farmers to grow organic oats with the same zero-water footprint method used in Scandinavia.

According to a press release, the Hälsa dairy-to-oat farm conversion program creates a long-term resolution in the U.S. food industry by domestically growing more sustainable, nutritious, and higher quality oats that can be used in multiple, healthy, plant-based foods.

Mika Manninen, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Hälsa Foods"Our program allows U.S. dairy farmers to create a domestic supply chain for premium organic oats that isn't dependent on imports,” the Co-Founders further noted. “We are taking a big step to reshape the future of food in America—a vision that is now more important than ever. We implore others to take similar action in supporting and fostering growth for premium ingredients right here in the USA."
