We are seeing more and more demand for plant-based products, and the Naturally Splendid brand of NATERA Plant Based entrees is an excellent fit for our rapidly growing customer base. We look forward to growing this opportunity with Naturally Splendid and NATERATM.”

Craig Goodwin states, “Teaming up with DirectFood.store provides an easy, affordable way to deliver our plant-based entrees to over 2.8 million people who live in the lower mainland. This is one more way to get our products to consumers as the trend of consumers looking for convenience when purchasing food continues to grow.

DirectFood.store is all about ensuring their customers receive high-quality foods and NATERA is excited to provide our delicious plant-based entrees to their valued clients.

Founded in the spring of 2020 as a division of Wisebox Solutions Inc., and as part of the i-Open Group of companies, DirectFood.store (DFS) operates throughout the lower mainland of BC, Canada, serving from Vancouver to Chilliwack.
DFS provides consumers, restaurants, and charities with free delivery for orders placed directly from local farms and vendors. Separate invoices and card charges reinforce that they are buying direct, even though they have the convenience of shopping in a shared regional marketplace with all their food arriving together. For local farms, DFS’s unique many-to-many delivery model and logistics software shorten the supply chain to enable just-in-time harvesting. As a result, the food is fresher and healthier while limiting food waste and environmental impact.
