Nowadays, more and more people are adopting a healthy lifestyle and making healthier food choices. Introducing Oatberry, a Singapore-made and owned brand, founded by Darren Tan and his wife Vanessa in 2015, both working professionals and parents to two young children. Oatberry is a one-of-a-kind café at Scotts Square known for its range of plant-based products from handcrafted gluten-free granola to vegan bakes, energy balls to nut butters, smoothies to acai bowls.
More about Oatberry, their founding journey started from Darren’s food allergies. His frequent flare ups since childhood had affected his daily life and mood. His children have also inherited some of these allergies. In search of nutritious allergy-friendly food and discovering the lack of healthy choices for breakfast cereals, Darren’s frustration with the poor options turned into determination to experiment with granola recipes in their own kitchen. He has since found a purpose to help other allergy-sufferers like himself or simply provide healthier safer alternatives for others to eat better through Oatberry products which are all-natural, vegan and allergy-friendly. Their products are free of common allergens such as gluten, milk, soy, peanuts and eggs.
