May 23, 2022 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Blender Bites Ltd. (the “Company”, “Blender Bites” or “Blender”), (CSE: BITE, FWB: JL40, WKN: A3DWAM), an award winning Canadian company involved in the development and marketing of a line of premium, organic and plant-based pre-portioned frozen functional foods, is pleased to announce that it has received its first purchase commitment for its popular Power Berry and Green D-tox variety pack from Canada’s Western Division of the world’s largest club store chain (the “club chain”).
The Company has witnessed tremendous success since launching in 42 locations of the club chain’s Eastern Canada locations and is optimistic and looking forward to building out its new relationship with the chain’s Western Canada division. The SKU will be available in early June 2022 to the thirty-eight (38) locations across the four (4) provinces that comprise the Western Division, namely British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
Once available in the Western Division, Blender Bites’ Power Berry and Green D-tox 1-step smoothie innovation will have almost doubled its footprint in club chain locations, increasing its presence from the original 42 stores in the East, to 80 stores, inclusive of the new Western Canada locations, which represents an impressive 91% increase in club chain locations, and a significant opportunity for even greater revenue generation.
Blender’s award-winning 1-step smoothies, which have just been named Product of the Year Canada for 2022 in the organic beverage category, are made with a variety of delicious organic fruits, greens and functional ingredients, including immune supporting plant-based vitamins and minerals, to provide consumers with a convenient solution for their daily smoothie routine.
“Through our expansion in Western Canada, we have been given the opportunity to double our Canadian distribution channels to the largest warehouse club store chain in the world. We look to achieve a greater level of success than we are currently witnessing in Eastern Canada due to the buying trends in Western Canada, and will aim to double revenue through this expansion,” stated Chelsie Hodge, the Company’s CEO and Founder.
