Oatly sues UK oat milk brand Glebe Farm over alleged trademark infringement

Glebe Farm Owner Farmer Phillip Rayner said the PureOaty name was “a nod to the purity of the product”.

“Oatly says the name and packaging is too similar to theirs, but when we compare the two products side by side, we are surprised by this.”

Furthermore, a spokesperson for Oatly spoke with Vegconomist, sharing: “We approached Glebe Farms in a letter in early 2020 telling them we think their branding infringed our trademark.

“We, unfortunately, did not receive a constructive response from them. We are therefore now involved in an ongoing court case, and we have no further comment as we await the results.”

The news of the recent court case comes weeks after Oatly went public with IPO shares, valued at a staggering $10 billion.
