In Finland the private milk processor Fazer wants to stop its dairy activities. For several years now, the company has focused strongly on plant-based alternatives to dairy, has invested more than 300 million euros in the production of oat products in the past three years and is now the largest oat drink producer in Scandinavia. Fazer is a small player in the Finnish dairy industry and mainly produces private label products. The milk comes from about 20 farms in South and Southeast Finland. The closure of the dairy would take place in August 2023 and cost 95 people their jobs.
