Oatly, the world’s leading oat drink company, has arrived in Malta with a range of oat drinks, including the Oatly Barista Edition, ideal for making a perfect cappuccino. Oatly, is a company built on the idea of change and exists to make it easier for people to switch to a plant-based diet without harming the planet.

Oat drinks in general have a lower climate impact than cow’s milk, therefore by switching to oat drink in your coffee, you would also reduce your climate impact.

“Our goal is to always deliver products that have maximum nutritional value and minimal environmental impact. We want as many people as possible to join the plant-based movement and to switch from dairy to plant-based, which is why we are so happy that we can now offer our products to the people of Malta”, says Jens Sintéus Sales Manager Export at Oatly.

The range of Oatly products available in Malta:

Oatly Oat Drink Barista Edition

Creamy and foamable, Oatly Barista Edition is specially formulated for coffee — making it an excellent choice for an oat cappuccino.

Oatly Oat Drink

The classic from Oatly, is an ideal product for daily use with protein, carbohydrates, fibre and healthy fats, enriched with Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and calcium. It can be enjoyed in the same way as cow’s milk — chilled in a glass, for cooking or baking.

Oatly Oat Drink Organic

Water, organic oats and a little sea salt to flavour. That’s all.

Oatly Oat Drink Chocolate

Like chocolate milk — except there’s no milk. The chocolate oat drink contains protein, carbohydrates, fibers and some healthy fat.

Domestic violence concerns everyone says Lydia Abela

Speaking during a press conference, wife of Prime Minister Robert Abela, Lydia Abela, addressed the recent brutal murder of Bernice Cassar. 

Abela highlighted how despite all the hard work done by various authorities, domestic violence is still an ongoing threat to many, especially women. 

She said that domestic violence concerns everyone, and that everyone has the right to love and be loved as well as the right to find the aid necessary when such cases emerge. 

Abela kicked off a 16-day campaign of activism towards protection of women, awareness about domestic violence and the prevention of further femicide. 

‘We do not want that Bernice and other victims are forgotten’ she said. ‘We saw a mother who woke up in the morning and prepared for a day’s work. However, she did not return home to her loved ones.’

Football in Malta could be played in Summer in near future

Football in Malta could be played in Summer in near future

Several proposals being considered by the Malta Premier League for a revamp could see Maltese football matches played in the summer. 

The MPL revealed a set of proposals currently in discussion by the 14 top clubs during a consultation meeting with stakeholders. One of the main changes could target the timeline of the Malta football calendar.

Premier League chairman Joseph Muscat said that the main aim behind the proposals is to try and turn the top-flight championship into a more competitive and attractive product. 

The MPL plans on taking full control of the championship organisation as of the 2024-25 season, with two proposals on the number of teams that will compete on the table. 

During the meeting, Muscat said that the 14 Premier League clubs unanimously agree that the season will be played between February and November. 

He went on to say that the biggest challenge is how to use the various venues to accommodate the new calendar season. Two options are on the table: the first being a 4 month competition between clubs to determine European placings.

The other is an immediate transition with a four month competition which will also include Challenge League teams. MFA president Bjorn Vassallo said impact assessment would have to be carried out before a decision can be made.



Brain cancer vaccine success in prolonging patient survival

Brain cancer vaccine success in prolonging patient survival

A trial vaccine for patients suffering from aggressive brain cancer has proven effective at extending survival during its Phrase 3 of trials. 

Vaccine DCVax-L is currently in its third phase of trials at London’s King’s College Hospital, and targets a type of cancer called glioblastoma. 

The vaccine works by helping the body’s immune system recognise and attack the deadly cancer cells. Sufferers in the trials have been living for months or years beyond what was originally projected. 

The results were published in the Journal of American Medical Association Oncology, with a statement from the college saying that this offers fresh hope to patients battling with glioblastoma. 

“The vaccine was shown to prolong life, and interestingly so in patients traditionally considered to have poorer prognosis” read the statement. All of the participants in the trial underwent the standard treatment for glioblastoma of surgery followed by radiotherapy and chemotherapy. 

“The long-term survivor group in particular has the potential to further teach us about the basic biology of glioblastomas, given that many patients in this group did not have the usual expected characteristics for good outcomes.”
