Double Olympic champion Mo Farah is fronting an advertising campaign to win more customers for Quorn’s alternatives to meat, which range from mince and sausages to ready meals and pasties. It makes its products using a fermentation process at its Yorkshire factory, and exports them to 15 overseas markets. Started in 1985, it was owned by Premier Foods until 2011, when it was sold to Exponent Private Equity and Intermediate Capital Group for £205m. Under chief executive Kevin Brennan, 52, Quorn made profits of £19.6m in 2014 and is investing £30m to boost production and create around 400 new jobs
