Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 13, 2022) – Plant&Co. Brands Ltd. (CSE: VEGN) (FSE: VGP) (OTCQB: VGANF) (“PLANT&CO” or the “Company“), a modern health and wellness company curating delicious plant-based foods, is pleased to announce that Yamchops, its Plant-Based Butcher and Market Place Brand, is now available in multiple plant-based and non plant-based restaurants in Ontario.

“As we continue to work with our brands, we are accelerating sales by improving our menu and expanding distribution. I am pleased to give shareholders an update on our recent work with our Yamchops brand,” said Shawn Moniz, CEO of Plant&Co. “Through organic growth initiatives, we have worked the Yamchops brand through a revised offering that spans both the QSR and Food Service side of the business. Our execution of those efforts is now paying dividends in new food service contracts and new direct to consumer engagements.”

Quick-Service Restaurant (QSR) Menu

Working along side Alex Rechichi (Chairman of the Board) we have developed a new quick-service restaurant menu that incorporates a fresh perspective on the eating habits of todays consumer. From Jackfruit Carnita Tacos to Chef Inspired Bowls, to freshly prepared Mediterranean and General TSO wraps, these new menu offerings are just a few of the new creations we now offer at Yamchops.

Food Service

We are pleased to announce that with the execution of a revised food service strategy and business model, distribution has already been expanded with products in grocery and restaurants across the GTA. We have launched multiple products successful into family restaurants in Georgetown, to ‘pub-style’ restaurants in both Mississauga and Burlington. At these restaurant establishments you can enjoy items such as our Chicken Cutlets, Szechuan Beef, and Crab-less Crabcakes (to name just a few) infused with chef-inspired dishes and entrée’s the whole family can enjoy.

These food service contracts represent both plant-based as well as non plant-based restaurants. All have implemented dishes featuring Yamchops products for its customers to experience new center-of-plate menu options during their culinary experience. This service offering demonstrates how Plant&Co can drive revenue in both plant-based and non plant-based restaurants and establishments.

“We are continually improving operations which are driving results. When we expanded the Yamchops Market Place brand to Grocery Markets such as Nature’s Emporium, Sobeys, Lettuce Love, Mad Radish and many more, we worked on expanding our food service offering into being served center-of-plate in restaurants across the city. We have now achieved the first phase of that goal with food service contracts spanning multiple restaurants and locations. We look forward to continually expand both the Market Place offering and Food Service offerings of Yamchops to stand alone and chain accounts across Ontario as we excel our food service strategy throughout the year,” said Shawn Moniz, CEO of Plant&Co Brands.
