The $1.5 Trillion Lifestyle Trend Taking Wall Street By Storm

One of the most powerful North American consumer megatrends is the staggering increase in demand for plant-based food.

In fact, the plant-based food market is one of the fastest-growing in North America.

In 2020, the growth rate for this market more than doubled – with sales surging 27% to $7 billion. And last year, 57% of U.S. households bought plant-based foods.

Experts project this market will only continue growing, with one industry source projecting that the global market for plant-based food will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11.9% until 2027, when it reaches $74.2 billion.

This increase in consumer demand has not only triggered a rise in the overall plant-based food market, it has also sent the valuations of some companies in the space soaring sharply higher.

For example...

- Tattooed Chef, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTCF) – founded in 2018 – has a market cap of nearly $1.7 billion...

- The Very Good Food Company Inc. (TSXV: VERY); (OTC: VRYYF) – founded in 2016 – now has a market cap of $315 million...

- Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND) – founded in 2009 – now has a market cap of nearly $8 billion...

- And Oatly (NASDAQ: QTLY) – an oatmilk company with fewer than 800 full-time employees – now has a market cap approaching $12 billion.

The next breakout company in the plant-based nutrition market, though, may not be a company producing an alternative meat or milk product.

Instead, a high-upside opportunity now appears to be emerging that combines the growth of the plant-based nutrition market with the highly lucrative sports supplement market.

This opportunity is with a company called PlantFuel Life, Inc. (CSE: FUELOTC: BLLXF)

PlantFuel is Bridging the Gap Between Plant-Based Nutrition and Peak Performance

PlantFuel is an innovative, premium plant-based nutrition and sports supplement company that is bringing to market a revolutionary plant-based portfolio of high-performance, science-backed sports nutrition products.

The company was founded by Brad Pyatt, a nutrition industry veteran and former NFL player, with a unique mission: to bridge the gap between healthy, plant-based nutrition and peak performance, all the while doing so with compostable, eco-conscious and responsibly sourced packaging.

Until now, few plant-based products could match what the sports nutrition category was able to deliver in terms of performance.

But PlantFuel’s trailblazing line of plant-based sports products solves this dilemma, finally giving athletes and consumers effective plant-based sports nutrition products to maximize peak performance.

All PlantFuel products feature clinically proven, banned-substance tested ingredients designed to push athletes past their plateaus...all without compromising on nutrition needs, performance output or flavor.

PlantFuel’s precise formulations were designed based on extensive and innovative research of plant-based ingredients, sourced from multiple leading ingredient suppliers, with efficacy and safety in mind.

Of course, as is the case with any new venture, the first question will the company get its products in front of a large number of customers?

PlantFuel (CSE: FUELOTC: BLLXF) has already taken some significant strides to make that happen in a very big way...

PlantFuel is Launching with a Platinum-Level Partnership with GNC...and a $3.9 Million Initial Purchase Order

PlantFuel is launching its initial lineup of products in August 2021 and has already lined up an impressive partnership with leading supplement retailer GNC.

Just recently, the company announced that this partnership with GNC had been upgraded to the “platinum” level (usually reserved for brands with $20m+ in revenue) – and that GNC’s initial purchase order for PlantFuel products is for $3.9 million.

The Platinum level partnership will give PlantFuel premium in-store exposure including a Point of Purchase (POP) display and full front window display at every GNC at the time of launch, which the company anticipates will be mid-August, 2021.

Following the launch period, GNC will give PlantFuel a dedicated wall within its stores for premium exposure as well as include its products in GNC’s Customer Loyalty programs.

PlantFuel expects this will generate high visibility and excitement for the PlantFuel brand in the months ahead. But PlantFuel’s agreement with GNC is just the beginning of the company’s plans for rapid growth...

PlantFuel Announces Partnership with Amazon’s Launchpad Program

In June 2021, PlantFuel announced that it had signed an agreement with Amazon’s Launchpad program, which helps empower innovative new brands, to launch its revolutionary new line of plant-based supplements and nutritional products.

Acceptance into the Amazon Launchpad program should help PlantFuel reach a broad audience as the company introduces much-needed alternatives to current whey-based supplements and seeks to establish itself as a leader in performance nutrition.

Thanks to this relationship, millions of Amazon’s customers who are looking for premium nutrition – but who may not have found much in the plant-based space – will be able to find PlantFuel’s innovative line of plant-based sports performance products.

These two partnerships – with GNC and Amazon – present an outstanding opportunity for PlantFuel (CSE: FUELOTC: BLLXF) to reach a significant number of customers right out of the gate.

Working with two of the largest retailers in the nutritional supplement space is a significant sign that the company appears well positioned for both short- and long-term success in the industry.

PlantFuel’s Leadership Team Has an Impressive Track Record of Success

In addition to the company’s innovative product line – and its significant partnerships with GNC and Amazon – one of PlantFuel’s most impressive assets is its leadership team.

This is not a collection of former finance executives with little to no retail experience – far from it.

Instead, PlantFuel (CSE: FUELOTC: BLLXF) is led by a team of experts with deep experience across a broad range of industries. The company’s leadership team has a proven track record of building and operating successful businesses and brands.

Boasting over $1 billion in career sales and 50 years of combined experience, the leadership team includes...

4 Key Reasons Why PlantFuel Life, Inc. Appears to Offer a High-Upside Opportunity for Investors

Reason #1. Superior Products: PlantFuel is bringing an innovative product line to a rapidly-growing market (the plant-based market) and, more specifically, a sub-set of that market that offers consistently high margins (the sports supplement space.)

Consumer demand for plant-fueled, protein-packed, clean ingredient products is rising with no end in sight. PlantFuel is here to meet this need with products featuring a clinically proven, plant-based ingredient mix.

PlantFuel Life Inc (CSE: FUELOTC: BLLXF) intends to move quickly to become a global leader in providing high-quality and innovative supplement solutions.

Reason #2. Smart Distribution: The company is starting with distribution relationships with GNC and Amazon – two of the world’s largest supplement retailers.

The initial partnership with GNC comes with a $3.9 million purchase order commitment – and extensive product placement – while the Amazon partnership is designed to introduce the company’s products to millions of customers seeking all-natural, premium nutrition solutions.

Reason #3. Superior team. PlantFuel is led by a team of experts with deep experience across a broad range of industries. The company’s leadership team has amassed over $1 billion in career sales and 50 years of combined experience.

When a leadership team of proven veterans – including the man who built MusclePharm from $0 to $200 million in sales in just six years – comes together on a new venture with such a clear vision...the chance for success can increase exponentially.

Reason #4. Marketing. PlantFuel is working with some of the best marketing minds in the supplement space and is leveraging the power and influence of celebrities and athletes throughout North America.

The company’s first major marketing campaign is set to be a high-profile campaign that highlights the health benefits of plant-fueled protein over the traditional, high-lactose Whey protein.

And PlantFuel’s marketing plans – including both online retail and in-store retail – are being designed by the very same marketing masterminds who have already successfully executed dozens of campaigns across a variety of industries.

The health and wellness industry is booming:

Though not exclusively engaged in the sale of plant-based products Tyson Foods (NYSE:TSN) is another company with a plant-based twist. It offers a wider selection of products available for both meat-eaters and plant-based diets. This is incredibly important in a time when almost 98% of consumers who buy plant-based products also buy animal meat.

Tyson is set to win big as a growing number of Americans begin to identify themselves as “flexitarian”, or people who still eat meat, but more often choose vegetarian options. While the “vegan wave” grabs more headlines, the reality is that many more consumers fall somewhere in the middle. And that’s great for Tyson, which offers an array of products that will tickle the tastebuds of a wide variety of customers – with a sustainable twist.

In a release, the company noted, “Tyson Foods is committed to sustainably offering the protein and food products that consumers want. Through the introduction of its Raised & Rooted™ brand of plant protein and blended protein options including burgers and nuggets, Tyson Foods has become the largest U.S. meat producer to enter the growing alternative protein segment.”

United Natural Foods Inc (NYSE:UNFI) is a public company that operates as a distributor of natural, organic and specialty foods in the United States and Canada.

UNFIs customers include grocery chains such as Whole Foods Market Inc., Wild Oats Markets LLC and Target Corporation.

From all-natural vitamins, snacks and meats to innovative tech solutions for small and large businesses alike, United Natural Foods Inc is a one-stop shop for all natural food needs. And its smart approach to the industry has paid off. Year to date, the company has seen its share price nearly double, suggesting that investors are digging what it’s doing.

Recently, United Natural Foods added Sandy Douglas as their CEO. Mr. Douglas is a veteran in online sales and digital marketing, skills that can make or break a company as the world races towards an increasingly online lifestyle. “We are pleased to welcome Sandy as our new CEO and member of the UNFI Board,” said Ms. Denise Clark, Chair of the Board’s Nominating and Governance Committee and CEO Succession Planning Committee. “He has a demonstrated track record leading large-scale transformation and growth through strategic, customer-focused action. His extensive experience, which is directly aligned with UNFI’s focus on growing the core business while investing in innovation, make Sandy well-suited to successfully drive the Company through its next chapter of growth.”

Though Hormel Foods made its name with meat products, it’s not going to get left out of the plant-based boom, either. In September 2019, Hormel launched its flagship plant-forward brand, Little Happy Plants. “We understand consumers across a spectrum of lifestyles are adopting more flexible attitudes and behaviors when thinking about food, especially given the wide variety of products available in the marketplace. We intend to focus on all the ways plants can help consumers find alternatives in their food routines,” explained Jim Splinter, group vice president of corporate strategy at Hormel Foods.

In addition to its core business as a manufacturer and distributor of frozen foods, B&G Foods offers private labeling services with customized packaging that can be tailored to its customers' needs. It’s also betting on a plant-based future with its 2020 acquisition of Farmwise, as well.

“We are excited to increase our great tasting, plant-based product offerings with the acquisition of Farmwise,” stated Jordan Greenberg, Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer of B&G Foods. “Dave and Cristina Peters, the founders of Farmwise, have done a tremendous job developing delicious, plant-based products, including Veggie Fries®, Veggie Tots® and Veggie Rings®, that both parents and children love.
