Although the show is primarily for consumers, several local independent and retail chain stores also had representatives at the Expo. Many of these retail operations have reached out to Naturally Splendid inquiring about listing our products. In addition to the existing leads from the previous Food Expo, the sales team will actively follow up on these inquiries.
Naturally Splendid VP Mr. Bryan Carson states, “As we are actively working our sales efforts on FoodService and Retail nationally, we didn’t want to lose sight of creating some local excitement about our products. The Greater Vancouver Region has over 2.5 million consumers, and this Expo is a low-cost way to target the plant-based consumer; as part of the show, we teamed up with Directfoods.com to get our products home-delivered. With everything being local and with Directfoods.com delivery, we reduce our packaging costs significantly. The response from attendees at Planted Expo has been exceptional. The Company has been receiving orders online since the show started on Saturday, and we look for growth opportunities for the business everywhere.
