"...the conversion of oats-to-milk in Southland may be get the go ahead.
Venture Southland enterprise strategic projects group manager Steve Canny said the Food Innovation Network completed research into the conversion of oat-to-milk.
"Southland was not adverse to growing oats but Venture Southland has to still evaluate commercial opportunities and investment options for a high value oat product,'' Mr Canny said.
When asked by Southland District Mayor Frana Cardno if oat milk was available in the Venture Southland cafeteria, Mr Canny said it was but tasted more like a "home brew'' at present."
