Plant Based Food Sales Could Increase Five-Fold by 2030

Plant based food demand shows no signs of cooling. In fact, according to Fortune, sales are expected to increase five-fold by 2030. Sales of plant-based dairy and meat alternatives reached $29.4 billion in 2020, and could increase to $162 billion by 2030, comprising 7.7% of the global protein market.” That’s substantial news for companies such as Komo Plant Based Foods (CSE:YUM) (OTC:KOMOF)(FSE:9HB), Beyond Meat Inc. (NASDAQ:BYND), Very Good Food Company Inc. (TSXV:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), Tattooed Chef Inc. (NASDAQ:TTCF), and Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BABY)(OTCQX: BABYF)(FSE:0YL).

“Plant-based is the grocery category to watch right now as brands continue to innovate by using new ingredients and processes that make plant-based products exciting for shoppers,” said Parker Brody, Senior Global Category Merchant for Plant-Based at Whole Foods Market. “And in the laid-back days of summer, we find that customers are breaking out of their routines and are more open to trying something new, whether they’re longtime vegans or just starting to experiment with plant-based eating.”

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. just announced that it is rapidly expanding its retail distribution network and has successfully added dozens of independent and specialty grocers to sell Komo plant based food products in the past 2 months.

Recent retail additions include Meinhardt’s Fine Foods, Larry’s Market, Stong’s Market, Vegetarian Butcher, The Juice Truck, Nourish Market and Bean Around the World in Metro Vancouver. Komo’s retail launch in April 2021 has shown strong consumer demand with many reorders from retailers, and one retailer submitting 10 reorders over the past 5 months.

Since its launch earlier this year, Komo’s products have garnered over 75 five star reviews through its direct-to-consumer channel. Consumers mention delicious taste, wholesome ingredients and ease as reasons why they continue to buy Komo plant-based products. “Excellent. Tasty, healthy, easy to bake,” says one review.

“Our goal has been to create a solid foundation of loyal consumers locally so we are poised for strong growth,” says Komo Plant Based Foods CEO William White, “We have had a very positive response from retailers for local sales. Many of our retail locations are returning to us with consistent reorders as consumers enjoy our delicious plant-based comfort foods. Adding dozens of independent locations gives consumers convenient access to purchase our products while we work on the longer sales cycle of larger grocery chains. We are very excited about pursuing rapid growth this year.”

Komo is now selling through several food distributors, including Dean’s Specialty Food Distribution, and is represented by Cornerstone Marketing for Canadian Sales, with 6 agents focused on sales in the natural frozen food category. Komo expects to broaden distribution points by 20 new retail locations per month as it plans for expansion in the United States. It is currently in the process of increasing manufacturing capabilities to keep up with demand.

In addition to selling through a retail network, Komo sells its products directly to consumers through its eCommerce website at and at local Farmers markets. A full list of retail locations can be found at and reviews from verified buyers are posted at
