Welcome OATSIDE!


Last May 9, 2023, I went to Intramuros to witness the launch of an oat milk brand that has swept across Asia since early 2022!  

I have been offered free upgrade with OATSIDE in some coffee shops when I ordered my fave cup of Latte.  I always say NO because I am so afraid the taste of my coffee will change!  

When I attended this launch, it totally changed my mind on what OAT MILK can do to my favorite coffee - instead of masking the taste of my coffee, it can actually enhance and make it taste even better!!  Before I gush on about how I love my Oatside coffee, let me share to you what happened during the event.

Singaporean Founder and CEO Benedict Lim began OATSIDE when he saw a gap in the market for plant-based milk that offers a creamy and malty taste profile that is familiar to people who don’t typically drink plant milks.  We know that taste is often a barrier for more people adopting sustainable milks so his goal is to develop an oat milk that could overcome these perceptions.  It was challenging developing such product according to Mr. Lim but obviously, he was able to manage it and succeed in flying colors!

OATSIDE is one of Asia’s few “full-stack” plant milk start-ups.  OATSIDE has retained full jurisdiction over their entire production process, from sourcing its Australian oats to oat extraction to filling.  This allows customization in the production process of our delicious oat milk and the ability to ensure that only sustainbly-sourced ingredients of the highest quality are used.  OATSIDE is plant-based, lactose-free, cholesterol-free and low in saturated fats.


Sustainability has been core to the mission of driving plant-based milks globally – production of oat milk requires 90% less land and water and produces 70% less emissions as compared to the production of cow’s milk, which makes it much more sustainable.

Today, OATSIDE is available in partner cafes in the Philippines including PickUp Coffee, FRNK and Bo’s Coffee and starting May, OATSIDE Barista Blend and Chocolate will be available on the shelves of major retailers nationwide, starting with Landers and Puregold —- and on e-commerce platforms like Lazada and Shopee.



After coming home and testing OATSIDE on my favorite coffee, it is true!  OATSIDE Barista Blend’s creaminiess gives body to coffees and is neutral enough to allow the coffee notes to still shine through.

I can’t wait to try more coffee blend with my OATSIDE!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
