Plant Based Diets Can Positively Impact the Fight Against Climate Change

A plant based diet may be good for the environment. In fact, according to European Scientist,“The global food system accounts for about 37 per cent of all greenhouse gas emissions and nearly one-quarter of the world’s total emissions. Reducing food loss and waste as well as transitioning to sustainable diets could have a significant impact on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, according to a report released from the United Nations, World Wildlife Fund, and Climate Focus in August.” Some of the top companies with products that are plant-based or otherwise good for the environment, include Komo Plant Based Foods (CSE:YUM), Very Good Food Company Inc. (TSXV:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), Guru Organic Energy Corp. (TSX:GURU) (OTC:GUROF), NEXE Innovations Inc. (TSXV:NEXE)(OTC:NEXNF), and Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BABY)(OTCQX: BABYF)(FSE:0YL).

In addition, as noted by, “If all people worldwide were to stop eating meat products, the area of land used for global agriculture could be reduced by around 75%. This would correspond to the combined size of the USA, China, Australia and the EU; such a reduction would lead to a significant decline in greenhouse gas emissions. The remaining agricultural land would be sufficient to feed the world’s population, according to scientists.”

One of the top plant-based food companies to watch is Komo Plant Based Foods

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. just announced it has started distributing its products through Dean’s Dairy and Specialty Foods and has sent its first shipment of products to Dean’s for distribution in British Columbia.

Established in 1986, Dean’s Dairy & Specialty Foods distributes premium all-natural and organic products to grocers, cafes, and eateries in Vancouver, the Lower Mainland, and just recently, Vancouver Island. To this day, Dean personally selects each brand they represent to ensure clients can expect top quality, consistency and freshness. Dean’s delivers 6 days a week with refrigerated trucks that are meticulously maintained in order to ensure the freshest delivery.

Building its roots in-home delivery, Dean’s team from day one continues to bring personal service, family values, commitment to quality, and their desire to delight customers through wholesale distribution.

“When we were first introduced to KOMO and met Adya, Fred, and Jeffrey – their passion and mission to share the love of plant based foods through comfort classics truly inspired us. We understand the challenges and obstacles young entrepreneurs in Vancouver go through, and we are here to support them on their journey to success,” says Dean Sellars, Founder and CEO at Dean’s.

With this new relationship established with Dean’s Dairy and Specialty Foods, Komo is no longer working with its previous food distributor for British Columbia. Komo works with Cornerstone as its Canadian sales agent to bring Komo Foods to broad distribution in Canada to independent and national health food stores, grocery chain and convenience food store and food services businesses.
