Quorn turnover £150 million

“Quorn ended 2014 with turnover of £150.3m, up £9m on the previous year. A £30m investment has seen a third fermenter built at its Billingham production plant where it makes around 22,000 tonnes of Mycoprotein per year, the core ingredient of Quorn products.

A global marketing push with a budget of £40m, including a TV advertising campaign starring Mo Farah and a push into Sweden and Germany, now sees Quorn exported to 16 international markets around the world.

Such is the demand for its high-in-protein, low-in-fat products in the US that the company wants to grow by 30% a year stateside with the aim of building an American operation three times its current size by 2020.

Kevin Brennan, CEO of Quorn Foods, said: There is a growing trend towards meat reduction around the world and as more consumers turn to alternative sources of protein, Quorn has seen a growth in sales globally”

“Germany could well be one of the top three or four markets in the world for us, after the US and UK, within five years. Meat-free is worth €130M (£97.4M) there and is growing at about 30%. We think it should continue to grow.
