Modern plant-based foods popped chips expand into an additional 130 retail stores across Canada

Snacks From The Sun - a fresh healthy plant-based snack crafted from simple ingredients, delivering the richest baked flavor.

Modern Plant Based Foods Inc., (CSE: MEAT), an award-winning plant-based food company is pleased to report a successful launch of the Snacks from the Sun popped chips brand across Canada.

The popular popped chips have been accepted into an additional 130 stores after strategic partnerships with two key distributors in both Western and Eastern Canada.

Avtar Dhaliwal, CEO of Modern Plant-Based Foods:
"This is just the beginning for our expansion plans to increase our distribution for Snacks from the Sun. We have received rave reviews for the product and have significant meetings planned with distributors. The addition of 130 stores is just the cusp and the start of the potential growth potential we see in Canada."
The Company has plans to continue its distribution network both within Canada and the United States. Given historical growth in this segment of the snack category, and the trajectory for sweet and salty snacks, the Company believes it will see continued growth in 2022.

As outlined in a recent report, "In 2020, the snack food market in Canada generated a total revenue of USD 9.8 billion(up by USD 1.3 billion more than 2019, resulting in a significant increase in annual revenue)."

Modern Plant-Based Foods' Snacks from the SunTM "Popped Potato Crisps" are light and airy crisps made from all-natural potatoes, whole grains, and seasonings then popped. The chips are vegan and free of gluten, cholesterol, and saturated fat. These vegan snacks come in six different flavors: sour cream and chive, sea salt, cracked pepper, tangy barbecue, salt and vinegar, and nacho cheese.

At the recent CHFA, Canadian Health Food Association Tradeshow, an event open exclusively to industry-related professionals including retailers, brokers/distributors, and manufacturers, the snacks received overwhelmingly positive feedback and interest for potential new distribution channels.

Cassidy McCord, Chief Corporate Officer of Modern Plant-Based Foods:
"After receiving tremendous feedback on the Snacks from the Sun popped chips at the CHFA event in Vancouver, we look forward to continuing our expansion plan into the snack category of retail stores."

"At the show, the Snacks from the Sun gathered significant interest from retailers, and we expect to be significantly adding to the number of Canadian retailers in the coming period."
