The newbie entrepreneur says: “I’ve been a fan of Redwood and its ethical, compassionate, foods for many years. For me, buying the company is a dream come true.”
Redwood produces more than 50 different animal-free foods under the Cheatin’, VegiDeli and Cheezly brand names at its headquarters in Corby.
Redwood director Rod Garland says: “Heather shares the same values and aims as us, namely to spread compassion across the planet and promote a healthy and more ethical lifestyle.
“The acquisition will enable us to accelerate growth of the Redwood brand around the world and allow Heather to promote veganism globally through her own restaurants and brands.”
Everything in Redwood’s range is totally free from animal ingredients and derivatives as well as cholesterol, lactose, hydrogenated fats and GMOs.
Redwood director Keith Stott adds: “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.”
