Mills To Compete With Mccartney's Food Range
HEATHER MILLS is set to rival LINDA MCCARTNEY in the supermarket aisles after purchasing a vegan food company.
Sir Paul MCCartney's first wife Linda was passionate about animals, and launched a successful range of vegetarian meals under the Linda MCCartney Foods name before dying of cancer in 1998.
Now the Beatles icon's second wife Heather, also an animal rights campaigner, has purchased her own animal-free food firm, the Redwood Wholefood Company.
The former model hopes to use the brand to promote a vegan diet globally, launching her own products on shop shelves.
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 through her own restaurants and brands."
Mills adds, "Buying the company is a dream come true."
MCCartney and Mills divorced in 2008 after six years of marriage.
