Heather Mills Invests Millions In VBites After Government Loan Rejection
Plant-based entrepreneur, Heather Mills has invested £23 million into vegan food brand VBites after her application for a Government loan was rejected.
The VBites founder is now pleased to announce that the company has purchased the 385,000 square foot factory in Seaton Delavel, Newcastle, the vegan business mecca now known as Plant-Based Valley.
Mills has been clear that, with VBites — which boasts over 130 plant-based products — she aims to do more than just make vegan food.
“I am hoping that the supermarkets and food service industry will support British manufacturing in these difficult times and Britain can unite to become a booming country in the food and beverage sector,” she said.
She estimates that the expansion will create 1000 new jobs.
Heather Mills Calls On PM To Support British Business
Mills revealed she had to seek foreign funding for the expansion after the loan was denied. Speaking to the Mirror, she called on new British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson — who has promised to boost economic growth across the UK — to “put his money where his mouth is” and support UK businesses.
