About us

Adrian Ling MD PlamilWe passionately believe in producing food that is made to the highest standards possible. We are more than a 'brand', as we actually make products in our own factory, giving us control over every aspect of production resulting in tasty food for all, supplying consumers, retailers, wholesalers and food catering / manufacturing facilities worldwide.

We think our customers should be able to enjoy food, knowing that every care is taken whilst in production, but also have complete assurance about both the purity of ingredients that goes in to making a product, as well as assurance that no other ingredient is present as well.

Our products are made to the highest Vegan standards, production is SALSA certified, and we are also certified by organisations such as Rainforest Alliance, Soil Association, UTZ and Kosher.

Our history

Plamil Old factory photographAs still applies today, Plamil started with nutrition, ethics and the environment high on the agenda. Originally the company was set up in the 1960’s to produce an alternative to dairy milk, producing milk from plants, the original ‘soya milk’ called Plant Milk. PLAnt MILk became Plamil Foods. Gradually from those early years Plamil has diversified to manufacturing a whole range of foods that you see today, remaining a Private Limited Company.

We are proud to have pioneered and paved the way for plant based food so many years ago, and are the longest-running plant-based business in the UK. Read about our MD Adrian Ling, the vegan Willy Wonka, and our history in this article from Forbes magazine, January 2018.


Plamil makes a wide range of Award winning products.

Plamil chocolate is almost ‘guilt free indulgence’. With our range of Plamil So free chocolate together with our dairy free, organic, and no added sugar chocolate bars, and scrumptious organic chocolate spread there’s truly something for everyone’s taste.

So free ChocolateOur mayo range is just delightful in taste. With no egg, so everyone including those seeking to avoid eggs can enjoy! Becoming ever more popular, the increasing awareness and diagnosis of egg allergy mirrors Plamil’s experience when it first introduced soya milk back in the 1960’s. Manufacturing alternatives to egg based mayo is a natural progression from soya milk, meeting demand for tasty egg free foods. Plamil’s leading egg free mayo range is a best seller; you only have to taste it to see why!

Plamil is more than a retail brand; we also make a whole range of products such as chocolate for food service and manufacturing. Contact us about your specific production requirements. To download pack shots click here.

Many ingredients are organic or fairtrade and we treat all our suppliers, as we’d expect to be treated ourselves. Everyone including those with most allergies, vegetarians/vegans or with specific religious requirements can enjoy all our products.
