Komo launches in Whole Foods Market retail locations in western Canada

VANCOUVER: Komo Plant Based Foods announced it’s now being carried in 4 out of 7 western Whole Foods Market locations.

Whole Foods Market, Inc. is an American multinational supermarket chain headquartered in Austin, Texas, which sells organic foods and products free from hydrogenated fats and artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

Whole Foods seeks out the finest natural and organic foods available, maintains the strictest quality standards in the industry, and has an unshakeable commitment to sustainable agriculture. Whole Foods has more than 500 retail and non-retail locations in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom. It has 14 retail locations in Canada, of which 7 are in British Columbia, and 7 are in Ontario. In 2017, Amazon purchased Whole Foods Market for USD$13.7 Billion.

“Adding Whole Foods to our distribution network is a huge accomplishment for Komo and testament to the high quality of our products,” says Komo CEO William White.

“We are so pleased with the growth in the number of retail stores that are selling Komo products. We have to thank our sales broker, Cornerstone Sales, our distributors, and our dedicated team for this growth. We are very excited about continuing to share the love of plant-based foods through our wholesale expansion”

Komo can now be found on the shelves at Whole Foods Cambie, North Burnaby, Victoria, and North Vancouver.

Komo has a distribution network covering all provinces in Canada, including BRR Logistics, TransCold Distribution and Nationwide Natural Foods. Komo significantly scaled up its production capacity through a co-manufacturing arrangement late last year, setting up Komo for nationwide expansion. Komo is also available in select IGA, Fresh Market, as well as all Choices Markets, all Nesters Market locations, Fairway Markets and Nature’s Fare locations. Komo is now also expanding to the United States.
