Heather Mills is a pioneering vegan businesswoman who discovered the healing power of a plant-based diet after losing her leg in a tragic accident with a police motorcycle in 1993. She became a Viva! patron in 2005 and has even gone undercover on a pig farm with Viva!’s founder and director, Juliet Gellatley, to expose the cruel use of the farrowing crate. Today, Heather's award-winning ethical food company, VBites, exports its 130 plant-based products to 24 countries. She also owns a 600,000 square-foot plant-based manufacturing facility, a cruelty-free make-up company called Be At One and a range of vegan algal oil supplements.
For the April edition of the Viva! Vegan Podcast, our head of investigations, Lex Rigby, has a candid chat with Heather about her campaign work to eradicate landmines and assist amputees, being the world’s fastest female disabled skier and the problem-solving nature of her incredibly successful business model.
Following the interview, Lex is joined by Viva!’s head of communications, Faye Lewis, to talk about Heather’s extraordinary story.
