Veji joins $88 billion dollar US wine market expanding its product offering to include a selection of curated vegan wines
VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 19, 2021 /CNW/ – Veji Holdings Ltd., through its US-based subsidiary, Veji Inc.(“Veji” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that the Company has signed an agreement to offer a curated selection of vegan wines on its digital marketplace, in partnership with VeganWines.com. This opportunity serves as an entry-point for Veji into a new product category. VeganWines.com has been onboarded as a vendor that will ship orders directly to Veji’s customers from its distribution center in Santa Rosa, California.
Vegan wines will be the most recent addition to the Veji marketplace with reach across the United States. Currently, Veji is home to over 3,000 vegan SKU’s which include grocery, skincare, pet products, and homecare. “We are honoured to be joining the Veji marketplace. Joining some of North America’s leading vegan brands, allowing us to rapidly scale across the country”, said Frances Gonzalez, CEO of Veganwines.com. “Being able to gain access to Veji’s community is something we are proud to align our brand with. Veji has proven their ability to build a community with vegans from all across the country. The move to a plant-based diet is becoming increasingly popular, and by partnering with Veji to tell our story we will be able to connect with consumers in key markets across the nation.”
This addition to the platform comes following Veji’s recent brand ambassador engagements, including pro-surfer Tia Blanco, as well as several active and retired professional athletes. “Our team has used our marketplace data to get an understanding of what consumers are looking for, and some of the pain points in the industry. At Veji we are building one of the largest marketplaces that incorporates machine learning, to identify and anticipate consumer demands”, said Kory Zelickson, CEO of Veji. “This type of information and data is very valuable to our team in ensuring that our offering meets our consumer demand.
Industry statistics have shown a rapidly growing demand for plant-based products across different verticals. “Providing wine on our website is an exciting opportunity,” said Darren Gill, Director of Veji. “We’ve seen the success of the online liquor industry due to the recent impacts of COVID-19, and having it as a part of our plant-based platform adds to the opportunity for our company to be able to better provide for our customers.”
Veji will be offering curated wine bundles in time for Valentine’s Day. If you’re looking for the perfect vegan Valentine’s Day gift this year, be sure to head over to shopveji.com to learn more.
