Veji announces the launch of No Evil Foods Offering of Plant-Based Meat Products
VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 21, 2021 /CNW/ – Veji Holdings Ltd., through its US-based subsidiary, Veji Inc.(“Veji” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that the Company has launched No Evil Foods brand of unique plant-based meat products. Through the company’s previously announced relationship with United Natural Foods Inc. (NYSE: “UNFI”), Veji has added the full product line from No Evil Foods to its e-commerce marketplace at ShopVeji.com
The additional line of plant-based meats will provide further selection for Veji customers, delivered contact free, to their door. The added “meat” products will be cold packed and delivered within 2-3 business days days across the United States.
No Evil Foods is a plant based meat brand that complements the Veji mission, and expands the company’s current verticals and partnerships. Veji is well positioned to take advantage of the growing plant-based meat category rapidly taking over dinner tables across the nation.
Recent data shows more shoppers are opting for plant-based foods during the pandemic, and sales of meat alternatives are expected to accelerate as the nation faces temporarily tighter supplies of beef, pork, and poultry. No Evil Foods, an Asheville, NC, producer of plant protein products, are produced using simple ingredients like wheat, chickpeas, kidney beans, organic tomatoes, and organic sea salt.
Vegan movements have been significantly building over the past couple years as environmental, health, and animal welfare concerns prompt consumers to replace the meat on their plates with one of the many new plant-based products in the market.
Veji provides consumers with a convenient way to enjoy a wide variety of plant-based products through its contact free online nationwide vegan marketplace. Retail sales of plant-based alternatives formulated to replace conventional meat, dairy, eggs, and seafood products surged by 90% in mid-March compared to the prior-year period, according to new data from the Plant Based Foods Association and SPINS.
“Expanding one of the highest selling categories on our site with a brand such as No Evil Foods is an exciting opportunity”, said Kory Zelickson, CEO of Veji Holdings, “with the surge in online shopping due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and our nation wide distribution and experience operating successful e-commerce sites, we believe we have created a one stop shop for Vegan products true to our mission of Vegan made simple”.
