Vegan milk factory ReRooted aims to increase production and deliver its zero-waste plant-milks across the UK in an electric van.

The Devon-based company, run by Richard Eckersley and Dan Dawson, aims to ‘end the need for dairy farms’.

‘Best in the world’

Speaking to Devon Live about the inspiration behind the business, Eckersley said: “Our idea came from frustration really. Our zero waste shop customers were asking us for milk – we contacted load of producers to try and find one not using Tetra Pak but we couldn’t find any.

“No one is really doing what we’re doing, and we’ve been figuring it out from day one. We are passionate about other manufacturers – we didn’t want a third party manufacturer, we wanted to do everything in house so there’s a lot of traceability – we know where every ingredient comes from and how its made.

“We think the milks are the best in the world. The reason is because we are doing it ourselves and the attention to detail is there for us.”

Currently, ReRooted only sells almond and coconut milk, but state on its website that oat, cashew, hazelnut, hemp, and rice milk are ‘coming soon’.
