In a statement, the company said it is continuing to expand distribution channels both regionally and nationally -- and this latest container provides the necessary inventory levels required to continue its push into food service and retail.
The expanding NATERA Plant Based Food distribution network now includes Sysco Canada - BC Division, CANEX Foods, and Summit Specialty Foods. This diverse group of distributors provide access to hundreds of points of sales across Canada, servicing diverse demographics.
British Columbia-based Naturally Splendid noted that consumer demand for plant-based, meat alternatives continues to increase for many reasons including personal health.
Consumers are also becoming increasingly aware of the reduced environmental impacts associated with producing plant nutrition, such as the reduction of greenhouse gases and significantly less water required when compared to animal farming.
"As a society, we are more aware than ever of the consequences of what we eat and how that affects the environment,” said CEO J Craig Goodwin. “We are well-positioned to capitalize on this rapidly growing market with NATERA Plant Based Foods. Our wide selection of quality plant-based choices is perfectly suited for this growing market and we look forward to providing these delicious entrees through multiple distribution channels."
NATERA Plant Based Food is online at www.naterafoods.com, and many of these products are beginning to reach retail shelves.
The company operates a Safe Quality Food Level 2 certified food manufacturing facility just outside Vancouver.
