At Blue Crate®, we do milk differently®
Amanda and Kristy wanted fresh plant-based milk but they had a problem: no one makes fresh milk alternatives. Their neighborhood grocery store was filled with expensive, shelf-stable nut milks made with fillers and carageenans. Wanting something different, they began making their own oat milk at home.
Blue Crate® is changing the way we drink non-dairy milk. We make our oat milk fresh in classic reusable glass bottles. Our oat milk is made with real oats and natural beta glucans right here in the District of Columbia. We’re on a mission to reduce our environmental impact, one bottle of milk at a time.
Eliminating Waste Together
Did you know that 40% of the food that is produced in the United States is thrown away? When you look at the carbon footprint of the food waste, it is the third largest after China and the United States.
From packaging to product, we are working to redefine how food is produced in the United States to minimize as much waste as possible.
⧫ We are a Zero Waste Certified™ company, diverting 80% of our production byproducts from the landfill.
⧫ We intentionally package in classic reusable glass milk bottles.
⧫ We turn our oat "pulp" into delicious snacks for our four legged fur friends.
⧫ We minimize surplus orders by buying our ingredients to meet demand.
Building a better food system starts with all of us.
