Alter Vego

Status: Expired

Apr 13th 2021 - May 14th 2021

Alter Vego (AV) aims to create an extensive range of plant-based, customisable supplements. The company asserts that its production process is sustainable. It starts by creating a vegan protein base blend from ingredients such as pea, hemp, quinoa and brown rice that is ethically sourced and produced. It then develops daily sachets that contain Omega 3, B12, D3, K1, digestive enzymes, and probiotics to complement the base blend. AV argues that the sachets provide 100% of a user's Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) over any pre-mixed bulk blend. It aspires to become a contender in the global nutrition sector worth $702 billion. AV will use the investment for manufacturing and marketing its products across the UK.
