Heather Mills' vegan food business, Redwood Wholefood Company, has been awarded kosher certification for its range of natural plant-based products.

Redwood secured the certification from the Manchester Beth Din, one of the UK's biggest kosher-certifying agencies, last week.

It was one of the first instances of a British vegetarian food manufacturer undergoing the certification process for kosher, claimed Mills.

The Redwood range will be distributed to kosher shops nationally by Eliko Food Distributors, who are based in Enfield.
