Vegums develop multivitamin gummies for a vegan and plant-based lifestyle. The company argues that some vitamins are difficult to get from a plant-only diet, such as vitamin D, B12, and iodine. Vegums has researched and incorporated non-animal vitamin ingredients into its products to address that issue. The company asserts that its products are 100% plastic-free and biodegradable. It claims that the number of vegans in the UK grew by 40% in 2020, and shows no sign of slowing down in 2021. It aims to become a contender in this segment. Vegums won the World Plant Award 2020 for the 'Best Plant-Based Start-Up', has a social media following of over 15,700 on Instagram, achieved 4.8/5 on TrustPilot, and scaled from selling 1 pack of Vegums to over 9,000 a month to its customers. It will use the investment for New Product Development (NPD), team expansion, and launching into new markets and countries.
