BROOMFIELD, COLO. – As oatmilk’s popularity continues to grow, Danone North America announced its Silk oatmilk will be popping up on more menus nationwide.
Via partnerships secured by Danone Away from Home, the company’s foodservice business unit, Silk oatmilk products are becoming available at a number of convenience stores, as well as other locations.
The made-to-order menus at Sheetz convenience stores throughout the country now feature Silk oatmilk.
Planet Smoothie launched a new co-branded plant-based smoothie line that includes Silk oatmilk in three flavors.

Silk oatmilk portion control creamers debuted at national and regional convenience chains across the country, as well. The creamers can be found at spots such as 7-Eleven, Circle K, ExtraMile, Love's Travel Center, Murphy, Pilot Travel and Speedway.
"We are thrilled to partner with such great companies to help them drive sales and to expand our ability to bring Silk oatmilk to more people across the US," said Ariel Dalton, vice president, Away from Home, Danone North America.
