Vancouver, British Columbia, October 12, 2022, – Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (“Naturally Splendid”, “NSE” or “the Company”) (FRANKFURT:50N) (TSX-V:NSP) (OTC:NSPDF) is pleased announce that Denny’s Restaurants has renewed its agreement to provide PlanteinTM plant-based Nuggets and Crumbed Tenders at all their restaurants across Canada under a national program.
Denny’s will continue to offer Nuggets and Crumbed Tenders at all corporate and participating franchise locations. Our delicious Nuggets and Crumbed Tenders are now available under the PlanteinTM brand, with Denny’s recently completing the rebranding with new restaurant menus and on-premises advertising.
Naturally Splendid Executive Vice President Bryan Carson states, “In addition to renewing our agreement, we are very excited to report that Denny’s and Naturally Splendid have begun discussions regarding adding additional PlanteinTM plant-based products to their menu. Having Denny’s renew with us and considering additional items shows that their customer base enjoys eating our products, and we look forward to continuing to provide our delicious plant-based entrees to this iconic restaurant chain.”
According to reports, plant-based meat alternative sales continue to be strong, increasing 74% in the past three years, outpacing the growth of conventional meat by almost three times. This surge in sales can be attributed for many reasons including consumers’ environmental and health concerns.
Naturally Splendid CEO, Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, “Through the course of the pandemic, sales of conventional meat and poultry have been impacted by supply chain disruptions and escalating prices, pushing consumers and operators to seek alternative proteins. Foodservice providers are meeting consumer’s demand for plant-based foods by partnering with brands like PlanteinTM to provide a wide assortment of selections making it easier than ever to choose plant-based foods as part of their diet. We could not be more pleased than to be partnering with Denny’s in this growing category.”
