She will also take part in this year’s industry leaders’ panel debate, organised by EMN in conjunction with Jackson Hogg Recruitment, the event’s delivery partner. The debate will include a question and answer session which enables the audience to participate.

David Land, who is Chairman of EMN, said: “There’s been a huge and understandable level of interest from the business community around the opening of the VBites manufacturing facility in Peterlee so we’re delighted to have secured Ms Mills as our keynote speaker at EMCON 2019.

“It’s a real coup for our event to secure someone of Ms Mills’ profile and will certainly generate a new level of excitement around the event.

“We’re also delighted to confirm that Ms Mills will participate in the panel debate and question and answer session over lunch. This has been a popular addition to EMCON however with Ms Mills as part of the line up, we expect tickets to be booked up very quickly as people are genuinely interested in what she has to say and her plans to grow the vegan business in our region.”

VBites is an award-winning manufacturing company which makes plant-based foods replicating 130 meat, fish and dairy products. VBites exports to 24 countries globally and has won over 80 awards.

Ms Mills is planning on bringing 200 – 300 jobs to the North East.

VBites and Ms Mills develop designs on machinery innovation in the plant-based meat and dairy and fish free sector, which Ms Mills believes is the future of food.

This year’s Viva Vegan festival was on the 18th of May in Birmingham and celebrated the 25th anniversary of Viva. Heather has been a long-standing patron of Viva working with Julliet Gellatley for many years, so was invited to give a speech at the event.

Many manufacturers are starting to realise the future is plant-based with no animal cruelty, however many of them are claiming to be vegan and are not, or, confuse the consumer by putting vegan next to one of their products duping the consumer to believe all of the products are vegan. Attendees learned what makes make-up not vegan, how to avoid these products and how to encourage manufacturers to steer clear of them.

Delegates came to New Bingley Hall, and indulged in the most delicious food and vegan delicacies and shop for ethical clothing, cruelty-free cosmetics and much more! There was also free nutritional advice and all the information you need to follow a vegan lifestyle. Whether you're vegan, veggie, or just V-curious.

Heather’s brand new VEGAN cosmetic brand Be At One was launched at the event showcasing some incredible products.

“On behalf of the entire Seeds&Chips team, I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation for the words you delivered at the fifth edition of Seeds&Chips in Milan. Your support is what strengthens our ecosystem and makes us believe that a sustainable food future is possible. Your energy and enthusiasm, inspire us all to do more, and to do better.

 It is an incredible privilege and honor for me to be able to meet and bring together so many extraordinary speakers with different skillsets and backgrounds, whose collaboration is precisely what the world needs to transform the food system. Your deep knowledge and experience helped make the Summit a great success. When we began our work at Seeds&Chips, we wanted to do our part to create a better food system for everyone and for the planet. Over the past four years since those halcyon days, I became ever more aware that the food chain does not exist in a vacuum, and that our world is an intricate system of infinite moving parts which, in order to change, must all change together.

 Once again, we are immensely grateful for your support, and we wish you and Ruth the best in your professional endeavors. We look forward to continuing the conversation in future Summits: Melbourne, Australia (3-5 September 2019) and Milan, Italy (18-20 May 2020).”

Forum for the Future of Agriculture 9 April 2019 - Brussels


Heather was invited by Janez Potocnik, chairman of FFA, Forum For Agriculture, 2019 to be a Keynote speaker in Brussels, Belgium - The Next Generation event on the 9th of April 2019. Heather’s 30 minute speech discussed VBites Foods, veganism and the future of plant based foods in the agriculture industry. The audience included people from the European Parliament, Council and Commission, Businesses, institutes and NGOs. This important event combined agriculture and environment, enabling open dialogue to create sustainable solutions.

Heather’s speech started at 2pm (GMT) and lasted 30 minutes, following on with an interactive Q&A with the audience, hosted by Femi Oke


Heather said:

"My key role in life is problem-solving unsolvable things that people think are problematic, but there are simple solutions. We had the answers 25 years ago, let's not be here in the next 10 years in the same situation and lets minimise the devastation on the marine eco system."

Heather concluded that:

"The simple solution for solving a number of issues is that every single person goes vegan."

Information from FFA 2019:

“The Forum for the Future of Agriculture (FFA) is where agriculture and environment meet for an open dialogue. Each year, luminaries from various leading international institutions, such as the European Commission, the European Council, the European Parliament, the food/farming chain, NGOs, and businesses from every sector present their diverse views to a packed auditorium.”


Chairman of FFA, Janez Potočnik said:

“It was great meeting you, dear Heather, and thank you for all your work and eye opening contribution to the FFA.”

"Forum for the future of agriculture (FFA) was this year devoted to the next generation. I feel profoundly moved and encouraged by their active engagement to protect their future. It is the right time for those in power to hear the echo of the streets and the voice of frustrated young generation.  Heather was in her provocative, but honest address offering us an alternative for a healthier and more sustainable life. By practicing it through VBites she is proving that it is also economically viable and attractive. An important message to the current and the next generation.”



“I have been a keynote motivational  speaker around the world for over 25 years, The fast  Forward forum was the first event where I came away feeling enlightened, inspired and educated by my eclectic esteemed colleagues.”

”This is what this audience & policymakers need to hear: the future of food is plant-based”

“Vegan diet the best says Heather Mills at #FFA2019. Only a handful of vegans in the room. Hundreds of meat-eaters. Good audience to hear this.”

“So refreshing to hear Heather Mills speaking at FFA 2019 about shifting diets and agriculture to vegan future. The growth of plant-based market is an opportunity for farmers not a threat and governments should assist animal farmers to transition their production to plant crops”

Heather wrote an article for FFA titled discussing why she switched to a plant-based diet and how it led to her creating the innovative products with VBites Foods :

My journey into plant-based foods

“When I became a vegan over 25 years ago, I was like most people, ignorant of the harm I was doing to myself, the animals and the planet. Until more recently it seems the majority of people became vegan because of one of these reasons. Mine was health.”

“This motivated me to start to develop meat, fish and dairy free alternatives that actually tasted great. Initially I started with soy protein as this was readily available and a complete amino acid, but as time passed I started to work with pea protein combined with oat, then algal oils, thinking this could be grown in Europe by farmers to move them away from the heavily subsidised dairy industry. From these varieties of proteins my team and I developed over 130 exact replication of meat, fish and dairy alternate products for parallel eating.”
- Heather Mills

Closing remarks by Janez Potocnik:

“Make no mistake, reforming our food and economic systems to a circular model represents probably the most profound shift since the Industrial Revolution. But that is also its promise; in remaking our world we will create the jobs and prosperity we need. “

More than 1300 people registered for the event and you can visit FFA’s Facebook or FFA’s Twitter for more information.
