VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 16, 2021 /CNW/ - Modern Plant-Based Foods Inc., (CSE: MEAT) ("Modern Plant Based Foods") or (the "Company"), an award-winning plant-based food company is pleased to unveil a new version of its "Vegan Roast" in a co-branded partnership with SPUD.ca under their Be Fresh brand. The plant-based, gluten free roast which will be available for purchase year-round has received exceptional reviews from retailers and consumers alike.
Sustainable Produce Urban Delivery, or Spud.ca, is an on-line grocery service operating in British Columbia and Alberta that predominantly focuses on selling sustainable, fresh, local, organic produce and groceries from farmers and nearby producers. Headquartered in Vancouver, BC, the company was founded in 1997 and has expanded into the largest on-line grocery company in Canada, employing over 700 people across all its markets. Vertically integrated secondary product lines such as Be Fresh and Organic Acres allow Spud to reduce food costs and waste, which is both environmentally responsible and financially attractive.
Unlike many competitor offerings, Modern Plant-Based Foods "Vegan Roast" is a delicious 100-percent plant based, gluten, GMO, nut, and soy free product, which is particularly appealing to many consumers that suffer from celiac intolerance or common dietary restrictions.
"When we first launched our "Vegan Roast" in 2020 we knew we hit the mark in filling a gap with a well-rounded center of the plate item," stated Cassidy McCord, Chief Corporate Officer of Modern Plant-Based Foods. "The successful test launch garnered the recognition of a major industry player leading to the partnership with Spud.ca. Moreover, it further delivers on our goal of becoming a trusted household name. Our chefs have once again developed a proprietary plant-based product that is delicious and fulfilling with a complex flavor profile. We expect our "Vegan Roast" to sell extraordinarily well with the support of SPUD and Be Fresh."
"We are thrilled that our product has been chosen in a co-branded label partnership with Spud. Spud has a large and engaged consumer base across all its platforms which will help continue to raise brand awareness," explained Tara Haddad, Founder of Modern Plant-Based Foods. "Continually challenging our team to create high quality innovative products will help our company secure great partnerships as this one. I believe we are well positioned for impressive organic growth and expect our new division, Modern Seafood, to do the same."
The "Vegan Roast" will be available for purchase through Spud.ca, Be Fresh and Blush Lane."
