Plamil Foods Ltd

About us

About us

We are a Private Limited Company making top quality tasty food for all, supplying consumers, retailers, wholesalers and food catering / manufacturing facilities worldwide.

We 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 the control over every aspect of production.

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.

So our standards are high and we know what is both in and not in our products. This enables us to produce a range of products including luxury mini chocolate bars and ‘free from’ products - ideal for those seeking food specifically for ethical, religious or allergy reasons.

Our history

As 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.

Products

Plamil makes a wide range of Award winning products.

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

Our 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!

Ingredients

Knowing what a product contains or does not contain is fundamental requirement of making a product to the highest standard, as this is a good indicator of real care and commitment from the field to our factory gate. Sourcing from farm co-ops together with strict purchasing controls is an example of what we do to produce products of the highest standards.

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.

There are no hidden ingredients or processing aids with our products. The ingredients on the label are what you get, nothing more. Check out the detailed product information on this site, available where you see the info symbol , for ingredients, allergy info and typical nutritional data.

We recognize the importance in the strict controls required for those that want to avoid ingredients, but we also recognize that these ingredients can be an important and nutritional food source for some people. Therefore you may find recipes using our products together with other ingredients, that some individuals may wish to avoid.

We’re against the use of ingredients that use ‘nano’ technologies or from a genetically modified source.
