VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 3, 2022 — Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (“Naturally Splendid”) (TSX-V:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) (Frankfurt:50N) is pleased to announce we will be presenting the PlanteinTM line of plant-based entrees at the Planted Expo Vancouver on June 4 and June 5, 2022, at the Vancouver Convention Center.
Planted Expo is Canada’s largest plant-based event of the year, focused on consumers looking to add more plant-based choices to their daily diets. Planted Expo expects more than 15,000 plant-based enthusiasts to attend this two-day event.
Naturally Splendid will be featuring eight (8) PlanteinTM plant-based entrees, including a plant-based; Burger; Crispy Burger; Crumbed Tenders; Sweet Chili Tenders; Nuggets; Schnitzel (cutlet); Garlic Kiev; and a Phishy Fillet.
In June, Naturally Splendid presented the PlanteinTM line of plant-based entrees at the CHFA NOW tradeshow, Western Canada’s largest natural, health and organics trade event and the Grocery & Specialty Food West (GSFW) trade show, Canada’s leading western grocery trade fair, bringing together manufacturers and retailers from all over the country.
Building on the momentum gained from these two previous trade shows, Naturally Splendid is pleased to present the PlanteinTM line of plant-based entrees to the ever-growing consumer base choosing plant-based products.
A 2021 study conducted by Leger Research found that consumer demand for plant-based foods is growing in Canada and around the world. Recent data shows that two-thirds (67%) of Canadians consume plant-based foods frequently, and 31% of Canadians plan to eat more plant-based foods within the next year. https://www.plantbasedfoodscanada.ca/news#:~:text=A%202021%20study%20conducted%20by,foods%20within%20the%20next%20year
Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. Craig Goodwin states, “Canadians are choosing plant-based foods for a number of reasons. Consumer preferences demonstrate there are many factors culminating to encourage people to incorporate alternative protein options into their everyday diets including environmental sustainability, human health as well as animal welfare. Consumers are aware how simple, plant-based choices can have a positive impact on the well-being of our global community. However, we believe that a major driver growing plant-based sales is taste and consumer experience. In that regard, we believe our plant-based entrees are amongst the best tasting choices in the market today. We look forward to sharing our PlanteinTM entrees with thousands of consumers at the Planted Expo this upcoming weekend.”
