Komo Plant Based Foods Earns US Market Recognition as NEXTY Awards Finalist

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. announces that its Plant-Based Lasagna has been named a finalist in the 2022 NEXTY Awards by Natural Products Expo West, in the category of Best New Frozen Product.

The NEXTY Awards recognize the most progressive, innovative, inspiring and trustworthy products in the natural products industry in the United States. Finalists are chosen based on innovation, inspiration, integrity, and impact. A team of editors and trend researchers go through hundreds of nominees to select three finalists in each category. Other nominees in the frozen category include leading products from The Plant Based Seafood Co., Tattooed Chef, Alec's Ice Cream, Deep Indian Kitchen, and Tru Fru.

“This recognition comes at an exciting time for Komo as we build out our U.S. retail network,” said William White, CEO of Komo. “There is growing demand for plant-based food from the U.S. and we are developing the right partnerships and strategies to satisfy this significant demand.”

Winners will be announced in early March, prior to the Natural Products Expo West, which will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center from March 8-12, 2022. Komo will be attending the convention as part of its plan to expand U.S. distribution. Komo is already available for direct-to-consumer purchase across the U.S. through the eCommerce platform GTFO It’s Vegan, and it’s now focusing on building out U.S. retail distribution points.

Komo's Plant-Based Lasagna is hearty and wholesome, made with a rich tomato lentil ragu and creamy tofu ricotta, smothered between layers of semolina pasta, and topped with a “cheezy” chickpea bechamel sauce. Preservative-free and sold frozen for freshness, it is available in two sizes: a two-serving package (600g) and a full-sized package with 5-6 servings (1.42kg).

“We are on a mission to change the way people eat, one family meal at a time, and make plant-based food a staple in everyone's diet,” added White. “Our hearty comfort foods are delicious and satisfying, and packaged in Earth-friendly, recyclable aluminum with a recycled paperboard sleeve. The lasagna is good for both you and the planet. We are very proud of our team and honored to receive this recognition from NEXTY.”
