Vegan meat sales have surged by nearly 280%, Oat milk experienced a dramatic 476% increase, due to the current COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
The interesting fact is that “traditional” products were left behind with canned meats sale increased by 187%, fresh chicken by 51% and diary milk seeing only 32% increase.
To help keep oat milk in stock, Oat milk brand Oatly took to social media against panic buying during the coronavirus:
“We would just like to remind everyone that buying every single last carton of oatmilk that you find at your local shop or online retailer is not a very cool move. And to be honest, it’s totally unnecessary… Our focus and top priority right now is to ensure that no matter what happens, the oatmilk keeps flowing, which means shelves will be refilled with speed and accuracy, which in turn will allow you to demonstrate all of your consideration skills, ultimately resulting in a few cartons of oatmilk for all.”
