Not a shop; if you are in Folkestone area you could place an order online & arrange to collect from the factory. Otherwise they delivers throughout Europe. Pioneer vegan Arthur Ling & now his son Adrian have been promoting veganism since the 1940s. Arthur started soya milk production in 1965, then added chocolate & carob bars in the early 80s, then chocolate spreads & vegan mayonnaise. more-less

Such a lovely company - purely vegan from day #1

Posted on 07 / 01 / 2013

I have been drinking their yummy soya milk for the past 35+ years - first in tins - later in tetra-packs.

A truly superb company!

Some notes -

Donald Watson in a 2002 interview - "......of all the many people who have subscribed to the vegan cause, I hesitate to single out anyone, but I would say Leslie Cross and Arthur Ling must be put in the records as being the two outstanding, faithful, contributors to our cause."

Arthur Ling joined 'The Vegan Society' soon after it had been formed. With Leslie Cross & others, he formed 'The Plantmilk Society' as a sub-committee of 'The Vegan Society'.
~ To address a practical hurdle on some people's path to veganism, Cross founded the Plantmilk Society in 1956. After five years this effort gave rise to Plamil, a company that in 1965 began selling a canned soy milk concentrate in London shops. ~

In its Memorandum & Articles it is written that Plamil Foods should always make only vegan products.

Plamil Foods regularly advertised in The Vegan and was the first user of the Vegan Society’s Trademark in 1990.
