(Flexitarian Foods), a division of Australia’s largest plant-based manufacturer, to become the exclusive Canadian manufacturer and distributor for an extensive range of plant-based, meat alternative products. The exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights are for an initial 10-year term with a 10-year renewable term. More recently, on April 12, 2022, the Company announced an agreement with Flexitarian Foods for the exclusive use of the PlanteinTM trademark in Canada with a matching term to the exclusive manufacturing and distribution agreement.
Naturally Splendid Vice President and co-founder Bryan Carson states, “We have developed a distribution network covering Canada coast to coast. This network of distributors provides access to thousands of clients across most every distribution channel, including chain and independent retail stores, chain restaurants and individual locations, of which many we will be meeting at the trade show. It has been a challenging time in the food service industry not being able to sample our plant-based entrees for prospective clients in our usual manner due to Covid restrictions. With restrictions relaxed now, we are most excited to be able to sample our entrees to prospective clients at CHFA NOW as there is no better way for us to promote the PlanteinTM brand other than to have consumers sample these delicious plant-based offerings.’
