FEEL FOODS GETS ‘VITAL’ GO AHEAD FOR U.S. EXPANSION
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Dec. 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FEEL FOODS LTD. (“Feel Foods”) (CSE: “FEEL”) (OTC: “FLLLF”) (FSE: “1ZF”) has just been granted a ‘Safe Food for Canadians’ license from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (the “CFIA”), allowing Feel Foods to sell its plant-based food products throughout Canada and export to other countries, including the United States.
Feel Foods will further benefit by utilizing its distribution network and National Brokerage agreements as announced on October 19th, 2021 with Tony Waters Agencies Inc. (“TWA”).
TWA will provide sales representation to the Canadian natural foods market with full-service sales, administration and marketing support. TWA has over 30 years of experience in the Canadian natural and organic marketplace and will work with Feel Foods to expand sales on a national level and represent the company to large mass market accounts such as: Costco, Sobeys, Save-On-Foods, Metro, Loblaws, Thrifty Foods, Federation Co-op and many other large chain retailers.
Feel Foods CEO, David Greenway, stated: “This license is a vital step as we systematically build a strong Canada-wide distribution network with a presence at over 70 grocery, restaurants and marketplaces in BC, marketing beginning in Alberta and now Feel Foods has the way cleared for U.S. product roll outs and sales.”
“Feel Foods has also received its updated packaging design and e-commerce cold shipping containers as we prepare for the launch of our e-commerce platform for direct-to-consumer sales.”
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is a highly-regarded global leader in regulating food, animal and plant health and safety. The Safe Food for Canadian Regulations (SFCR) are designed to improve food product quality and safety.
To be licensed, companies must have a rigorous food safety program based on Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles. The SFCR gives CFIA the authority to certify all foods for export, as is increasingly required by more foreign countries, streamlining the system and making export easier for Canadian manufacturers.
The plant-based food market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2027 to reach $74.2 billion by 2027.* The growth of this market is mainly attributed to the factors such as increasing incidence of intolerance for animal protein, growing urbanization with new consumer aspirations, increasing vegan population, and significant venture investments in this sector.*
