VANCOUVER, BC, Feb. 2, 2021 /CNW/ – Veji Holdings Ltd., through its U.S.-based subsidiary, Veji Inc.(“Veji” or the “Company”), an online platform offering thousands of vegan and plant-based products, is announcing the launch of Veji Express. Vejji Express offers guaranteed shipping within two business-days across the U.S. on select products. The website now includes a section that showcases products that are available via Veji Express.
Veji has also expanded its product offering to include more plant-based SKUs, such as perishable and frozen plant-based meat, seafood, and dairy alternatives, facilitated through the Company’s relationship with UNFI.
The global market for plant-based food was valued at USD $12.69 billion in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 9.6% from 2019 to 2025  according to Grandview Research.
“We are constantly looking for ways to improve the experience for Veji customers and are proud to now be able to offer faster delivery times nationwide. This is more important than ever to consumers as many are avoiding in-person grocery shopping, or simply want another option that aligns with their values,” said Kory Zelickson, CEO of Veji. “This will not only enable faster delivery and a wider selection of products, but it will also allow us to better control distribution and continue to improve the customer experience.”
Veji provides a unique online shopping experience tailored to serve a wide cross-section of the plant-based market, including vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and anyone looking to simply begin integrating more plant-based meals into their diet. The platform uses data analytics and proprietary machine learning technology to gain insights into its highest velocity and trending SKUs, enabling the Company to determine which products will perform best when offered via Vejji or Veji Express. By offering products through Veji Express, the Company anticipates a potential increase of repeat-purchases and an improved customer experience.
