Modern Plant-based Foods Launches New Modern Seafood Division and Begins Plant-Based Smoked Salmon Research and Development
VANCOUVER, BC, September 11, 2021 / CNW / – Modern Plant-Based Foods Inc., (CSE: MEAT) (“Modern plant-based foods”) or (the “Company”), an award-winning plant-based food company is pleased to announce that it will be launching a plant-based seafood division, Modern Seafood. Modern Seafood will focus on the research and development, production and manufacture of plant-based seafood alternatives. More specifically, the sub-division will seek collaborations with existing seafood companies interested in developing alternatives to quality seafood.
Modern Seafood’s main products will include its award-winning âcrab cakeâ which has been the company’s number one seller since its inception. The modern “crab cake” is available on the shelves of retail stores and food service establishments across the country and is currently developing in United States and Australia. Modern Seafood’s new plant-based smoked salmon will be gluten, soy and GMO free.
âWe recognize that there is a constant need for innovation to keep up with the rapid growth of the herbal sector and our company takes pride in keeping ahead of consumer demand and trends,â says Tara Haddad, founder of modern plant-based foods. The alternative seafood sector is still in its infancy and it is an area where we want to establish ourselves as industry leaders. Smoked salmon is extremely popular and widely consumed around the world, and we believe there will be a resurgence of interest in products that have been developed by chefs not manipulated by scientists â,
With an increasing number of mainstream consumers adopting plant-based diets, grocery store sales of herbal products have reached $ 7 billion and has grown 27% in the past year, according to SPINS retail data, almost double the growth rate of overall food sales in the United States, with seafood alternatives also experiencing significant growth. The European smoked salmon market amounted to more than $ 4.2 billion annual growth of 2% from 2018.
âWith alternative seafood companies around the world receiving at least $ 83 million of investors in 2020, compared to $ 1 million three years ago, it is evident that there is interest in the growth of this sector. As we move forward, sustainability for future generations is essential, as current reserves simply will not be able to meet consumer demand. We want to make a difference and turn the pendulum back “, says Cassidy mccord, Managing Director of Modern Plant-Based Foods.
