Smarter farming: Oats 2.0

Here at Helsinki Mills, we decided to make the world a better place and create better farming methods. So, we developed our own and resource-wise approach that is tailored to growing oats. Oat Flakes 2.0 and Instant Oat Flakes 2.0 made from smart oats are now available in shops. And by the way, they are not your average oats!

GROWING OATS IN A WAY WHERE EVERYONE WINS. HOORAY!

We constantly challenge ourselves to find better ways to nurture happiness. An apt example of this is the new Oats 2.0, a new crop that is being cultivated more in a more intelligent way with the help of modern technology. Satellite images, measuring devices, scans and analyses give farmers information about what their field or crop needs. We make sure that nothing extra ends up in the field and we only fertilise as needed.

This future farming method supports biodiversity and makes oats more nutritious. Now everyone wins - the farmer, the soil, and of buzzy bugs and, of course, the porridge eater. Awesome that you have decided to choose the winning side!

THE ENTIRE CONTENTS OF A PACKAGE FROM A SINGLE FARM

What's new is that Oats 2.0 is grown in one place, at the Mäki-Latvala farm in Ilmajoki, where everything is done thoroughly. The delicious flakes that end up on your plate are guaranteed to come from the fields of Mäki-Latvala. You can eat these heart-healthy, high-fibre flakes every day, as they are good for both your stomach and your blood circulation!
