July 9, 2020, Cambridge, Ont. – YOATS, Canada’s first oat yogurt, hits store shelves across Canada this month.

The latest invention from Yoso, innovators in Canadian non-dairy foods, harnesses the superpower of Canadian-grown oats and delivers natural flavours of oats, vanilla and blueberries with zero sweeteners.

Yoso was a pioneer in soy-based foods, and the first to introduce unsweetened coconut and almond and cashew yogurts, a staple on grocery shelves today.

The company states that YOATS meets the market’s increasing demand for plant-based, wholesome foods packed with protein and nutrients. All three flavours of YOATS are unsweetened, addressing the demand for no added sugar.


“YOATS is the fourth product category we are introducing to the Canadian market since my brother, Erik, and I started Yoso in 1999,” explains Francis Lo, co-founder of Yoso. “There’s a rich history of plant-based food innovation in our family going back to our grandfather commercializing soy milk in China in 1940. We see it as our responsibility and our life’s work to continue this spirit of innovation bringing wholesome, delicious options to Canadians.”

Yoats will be available in 440-gram containers in more than 150 of the close to 2,000 stores across Canada where Yoso products are sold.
