Blender Bites (BITE) has signed a distribution agreement with leading food service distributor, Gordon Food Service (GFS). The partnership is for a food service launch of Blender’s one-step smoothie puck in Ontario.

GFS is one of the largest food distribution companies in North America, operating more than 175 stores with 14 distribution centers across 12 eastern US states and 10 distribution centers across Canada. 

Gordon Food Service will distribute Blender Bites products to its client hotels, restaurants, cafes, hospitals, universities, and airports in Ontario. The agreement provides Blender Bites with a very lucrative second stream of revenue and opens the possibility of future GFS service launches in other Canadian provinces for Blender Bites products, expanding the company’s footprint and increasing revenue.

This launch, expected to begin this Spring will include Blender’s Power Berry and Green D-Tox smoothie puck products. 

Chelsie Hodge, Blender Bite’s CEO and founder commented on the partnership.

“I am extremely excited to announce our partnership with GFS. GFS is an industry wide recognized name in the ‘distribution world’, servicing hundreds of thousands of hotels, restaurants, airports, universities as well as others across North America. I truly believe our initial launch with GFS in Ontario, will result in additional GFS distribution agreements in other regions of Canada, and potentially within the US. This is a great first step into the Food Service industry which because of the pandemic is heavily relying on options that are quick, easy and require the least amount of manpower as possible. Blender Bites are the perfect solution for these mass volume accounts that want to hit on all the key ingredient trends without the complicated process to create.”

Blender Bites offers a line of premium frozen food products with a focus on functionality. 

Blender Bites (BITE) opened trading at C$0.97 per share.
