Leader in chef-crafted plant-based meats joins the growing list of PlanX fulfillment customers
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 5, 2023 / PlantX Life Inc. (CSE:VEGA)(OTC PINK:PLTXD)(FSE:WNT1) ("PlantX" or the "Company"), the digital face of the plant-based community, operating a one-stop shop for plant-based products, today announced that it has added Hungry Planet®, Inc. ("Hungry Planet") to its growing roster of brands adopting its e-commerce fulfillment solutions. Adding Hungry Planet and its chef-crafted plant-based meats further leverages PlantX's warehousing and logistics capabilities.
St. Louis, MO-based Hungry Planet offers a full range of delicious, nourishing, plant-based meats. With textured soy protein as a common base, Hungry Planet's product line includes nine different meats - beef, chicken, pork, lamb, turkey, crab, chorizo, Italian sausage, and breakfast sausage - that come in an array of forms, from ground to cutlets to entire meals, like chicken piccata, Salisbury steak, and penne pasta with sausage. The popular brand is available in thousands of venues across the U.S., Australia and New Zealand including fine dining, fast casual, university, hospital, retail, grocery, deli, and, through its philanthropic arm, the company has helped provide over one million Hungry Planet meals to public K-12.
"Hungry Planet is a huge win for PlantX, not only because their meats taste great, but because the brand targets the large category of ‘flexitarians', those people who aim to eat healthy and conscientiously but still indulge in some meat on occasion," said PlantX CEO, Lorne Rapkin. "We are excited to add Hungry Planet's authentic and complete range of plant-based meats alongside PlantX's own diverse product assortment as we serve this incremental audience of consumers."
Hungry Planet CEO and co-founder Todd Boyman said, "Our greatest hope is that we're making it easier for people to choose plant-based meat, and through our partnership with PlantX, we're confident that we're one step closer to bending the curve on personal and planetary health."
