We’re sharing the stories of our #SME Heroes


OkJa, is a plant-based food and beverage business that was founded in 2019. With its most popular product being oat milk, OkJa was born out of a desire to provide a more sustainable alternative to dairy, as well as the other dairy alternatives currently on offer.

They pride themselves on the integrity of product composition. With no unrecognisable or unpronounceable ingredients – and containing 60% more oats than their Swedish counterparts (who are famous for their oat milk variants) OkJa offers a creamier, richer mouthfeel and a denser foam for your latte.

About the owner

Founded by co-owners Rui Esteves and David Chait they believed in transforming the landscape through offering an environmentally responsible, delicious, plant-based option, which is great for adding to your cereal, foaming up and pouring into your coffee or enjoying on its own.
