Adipose Industries was a London company run by "Miss Foster" as part of her plan to breed Adipose on Earth. Sources vary on when her plan came to fruition, with some suggesting 2009 (TV: Partners in Crime) and others suggesting it was 2008. (AUDIO: SOS) The company sold diet pills to reduce fat, but the pills actually created Adipose babies. They had one million customers in the Greater London area alone.

Donna Noble, while trying to find the Tenth Doctor, appeared at Adipose as a Health and Safety agent to research the diet pills. When she was reunited with him, he was pretending to be a Health and Safety agent named John Smith. (TV: Partners in Crime)

Some on the internet suggested that the March of the Adipose may have been an Adipose Industries publicity stunt which backfired. While researching Adipose Industries for their podcast, The Blue Box Files discovered that no one from the company was ever seen again, though Shawna Thompson suggested that Adipose staff may have been "sunning it up in Panama" after being caught "selling dud pills".
