VBites buys ex Procter & Gamble site
Vegan food producer, VBites, has purchased the ex Coty/Procter & Gamble factory in Seaton Delavel, Newcastle.
The 385,000-square foot site will enable the company to expand its existing range of meat, fish and dairy alternatives, and explore new ventures into vegan makeup.
VBites founder, Heather Mills, said: “This is our third factory purchase in the north-east to help bring more employment and expand the plant-based meat, fish and allergen free dairy alternative industry as well as micro algae and vegan makeup. This recent purchase of a factory that has been sitting empty for nearly 2 years will mean it will bring more jobs to the region and we can incubate all of our VBITES Ventures investments to help them scale up, manufacture, distribute and sell in 24 countries around the world.
“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.”
