Vegan brand snapped up by Heather Mills

03-Aug-2009

Heather Mills, former wife of Beatle Paul McCartnery and animal rights campaigner, has acquired leading plant-based food brand The Redwood Wholefood Company.

The acquisition represents an opportunity to accelerate growth of the brand, said Rod Garland, director of Redwood, and represents a “dream come true”, said Mills.

 

“We are delighted that the business has been acquired by someone with the dynamism and passion of Heather,” said Redwood director Keith Stott. “We’ve been approached by many large food manufacturers in the past but have never wanted to jeopardise the future of our employees who we value so much or our factory by selling the business to a large corporation. By selling to Heather we are protecting our loyal staff and also our base in Corby.”
