Camilla Ainsworth

Blackburn-born, Camilla was the youngest finalist in the history of the BBC Apprentice series.

A former law student, Camilla was just 22 when she appeared on 2018’s ‘The Apprentice’, narrowly missing out in the final. Whilst Lord Sugar didn’t choose her, the CEO of Holland & Barrett was suitably impressed with her vegan nut milk M+LKPLUS and she went ahead to launch the dairy alternative into 645 of their stores where both flavours continue to sell out.

Alongside being stocked in several retail outlets, M+LKPLUS was the first dairy free product to be made available to patients, visitors and staff at NHS hospitals throughout the UK. Camilla was recently listed in the ‘Top 10 women to watch list’ of 2019 in the drinks industry and has huge plans for the business this year including new products and more retail listings.

Camilla is passionate about health and wellbeing, M+LKPLUS was created to fulfil a personal need, and now seeks to offer the product to a wider audience. Camilla is a huge advocator for women in business and has conducted workshops to facilitate start ups.
