This Potential $1.4 Trillion Plant Based Market is Just Starting to Sprout

The plant based market is sprouting – and fast. In fact, “Plant-based popularity is shifting the foodservice sector towards more sustainable and healthier ingredients, in light of both the climate crisis and the pandemic. The trend is occurring across the entire market, marking a significant shift in both restaurant sourcing and consumer demand. The report also found that 9.2 percent of restaurants in the US incorporate vegan meat in their menus,” as noted by That’s big news for companies such as Komo Plant Based Foods (CSE:YUM)(OTC:KOMOF), Rritual Superfoods Inc. (CSE:RSF)(OTC:RRSFF), Very Good Food Company Inc. (CSE:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), good natured Products Inc. (TSXV:GDNP)(OTC:SLGBF), and Oatly Group (NASDAQ:OTLY). In addition, analysts at Credit Suisse say the market could grow 100-fold by 2050. They also believe that a plant-based shift in global food systems is “inevitable,” as noted by The Beet, and that the market could reach $1.4 trillion by 2050.

Komo Plant Based Foods (CSE:YUM)(OTC:KOMOF) Expands Plant-Based Meal Helpers

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. just announced that it has received a Safe Food for Canadians License certification from The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to export Komo Foods to other countries, including the U.S.

The license, granted under the Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR), also authorizes Komo to ship food it makes in its commercial kitchen to all provinces and territories in Canada, making it possible for Komo to now enter into agreements with national grocery retailers. Having this license supports Komo’s aggressive growth plan to expand sales across Canada and into the U.S.

“The U.S. market represents a huge market opportunity for Komo and we are excited to start our plans for aggressive U.S. expansion,” says Komo Plant Based Foods CEO William White. “The transition to plant-based diets from diets heavy with animal proteins can have a significant impact on climate change. We are so pleased to give more consumers the ability to make healthy food choices without giving up the comfort, taste, and quality of hearty foods they love.”

Komo is currently working with a sales broker experienced in natural food distribution to onboard national grocery chains in Canada and is now in discussions to secure U.S. sales representation.

Komo incorporates the concept of modern comfort into its packaging design, and is now designing packaging for the US to comply with the US FDA labeling requirements. Each frozen meal has a shelf life of one year and is prepared with the safest food preparation based on HACCP principles.

The CFIA is a global leader in regulating food, animal and plant health and safety. The SFCR is designed to improve food product quality and safety. To be licensed, companies must have a rigorous food safety program based on HACCP principles. The SFCR gives CFIA the authority to certify all foods for export, as is increasingly required by more foreign countries, streamlining the system and making export easier for Canadian manufacturers.
