Komo Plant Based Foods (YUM) has received a Safe Food for Canadians License to export Komo Foods to other countries, including the United States.

The license, granted under The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations, also authorizes Komo to ship food it makes in its commercial kitchen to all provinces and territories in Canada, making it possible for Komo to now enter into agreements with national grocery retailers.

Having this license supports Komo’s aggressive growth plan to expand sales across Canada and into the U.S.

“The US market represents a huge market opportunity for Komo and we are excited to move forward with aggressive U.S. expansion,” says Komo Plant Based Foods CEO William White,

“The transition to plant-based diets from diets rich with animal proteins can have a significant impact on climate change. We are so pleased to give more consumers the ability to make healthy planetary food choices without giving up the comfort, taste and quality of hearty foods they love.”

Komo is currently working with a sales broker experienced in natural food distribution to onboard national grocery chains in Canada and is now in discussions to secure U.S. sales representation.

Komo incorporates the concept of modern comfort into its packaging design and is now designing packaging for the US to comply with the US FDA labelling requirements. Each frozen meal has a shelf life of one year and is prepared with the safest food preparation based on HACCP principles.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is a global leader in regulating food, animal and plant health and safety.

The Safe Food for Canadians Regulations (SFCR) is designed to improve food product quality and safety.

To be licensed, companies must have a rigorous food safety program based on 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.

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. is a plant-based food company that develops, manufactures, markets and sells a variety of plant-based frozen meals. 

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. (YUM) opened trading at C$0.12 per share.
