VANCOUVER —Plant-Based Foods Inc. is bringing Modern Meat, its line of meat-alternative products, into restaurants through a distribution agreement with Gordon Food Service (GFS). Restaurants will now have direct access to Modern Meat Products, including the Modern Crabless Cakes, Burgers, Meatballs and Gyozas.
“We feel that this distribution partnership with GFS will play a significant role in advancing national expansion,” says Tara Haddad, founder and CEO of Modern Plant-Based Foods. “By adding GFS to our distribution network, this allows a whole new channel of sales. The vast majority of restaurants nationally order from GFS, which in turn will increase our exposure significantly. As consumers are prioritizing health and wellness, they are moving towards healthier diets. Like us, GFS is aware of the growing consumer trend around plant-based meats and wants to offer their food service customers trusted quality products like Modern Meat.”
“In early 2020 we shifted our focus from foodservice to retail as COVID-19 forced restaurants to shut,” explains Haddad. “Now, with restrictions lifting across North America, we can turn our attention to this very important category which offers incredible revenue potential.”
