An online vegan retailer has had to move to new premises after sales skyrocketed during the coronavirus lockdown.

E-commerce business was founded by husband and wife team Karris and Scott McCulloch in 2013. They initially launched a subscription box service, then added an online supermarket.


The McCullochs initially started the business from their dining room table before finding premises. Now they find themselves having to upgrade for the second time in just two years.

This newest property has treble the floor size of their last base, for a total of 35,000 sq ft in Glasgow, Scotland.

In addition, the company has created 21 new jobs to cope with growing demand, including eight full time and eight part-time warehouse contracts, three additional customer service staff, a creative content designer, and a financial director position.

‘No way to predict it’

“Like most companies around the UK, there was no way we could have predicted the impact that Covid-19 was going to have on our business,” Scott McCulloch said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“But fortunately for us, it’s allowed us to grow much quicker than we ever thought possible.

“We didn’t plan on moving warehouse again so quickly after our last move, but after forecasting the festive period, we quickly realised that the business couldn’t have coped with any more increased demand in its current premises.

‘Never say never!’

He added: “The new warehouse is huge and will allow us to process so many more orders. We don’t plan on moving now for the next five years at least – but never say never!

“It’s been all hands on deck and the entire team has been working tirelessly to pack orders, move sites, and launch our new recipe site, all whilst prioritizing the health and safety restrictions brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ve been busy to say the least, and amongst all of this we’re really happy to have been able to create 21 new jobs in Glasgow.”
