Product of the Year Awards 2024 Names Oddlygood as Best Plant Based Milk

The 2024 Product of the Year winners, chosen by 8,000 UK consumers in what is described as the UK’s largest celebration of product innovation, have been revealed.

The Product of the Year logo has 81% shopper recognition, can be seen in all major supermarkets and convenience stores across the country, and is described as a vote of confidence by consumers for consumers.

Oatly, Alpro (Danone), DUG (Veg of Lund), Planti, Oddlygood, and Sproud, under the umbrella of Plant-based Sweden (Växtbaserat Sverige), have sent a letter to the Swedish government urging it to advocate for the inclusion of plant-based milk in the upcoming review of the EU School Scheme.

Last year, ProVeg and The Vegan Society collected tens of thousands of signatures calling for the EU to add plant-based milk to the scheme. The Green REV Institute also issued an open letter calling for plant milk in schools, arguing that …
