(CSE:YUM)(OTCQB:KOMOF)(FRA:9HB) ("Komo"), a premium plant-based food company, is pleased to announce it achieved record revenues for product sales in the month of December 2021.

"Our significant increase in revenues in December was a surprise since we experienced many delays in distributing our products outside of British Columbia due to weather conditions and widespread labour shortages," says Komo CEO William White. "We are very excited about our continued revenue growth as we expand throughout Canada and the United States. We know our products are well received by consumers as we continue to receive five star consumer reviews through our eCommerce platform and we are receiving consistent repeat orders in both wholesale and direct to consumer sales."
Komo follows a two tier approach for its product launches. All products are first launched locally through Komo's direct-to-consumer eCommerce platform in Metro Vancouver. Komo uses the consumer feedback to improve the product until it is ready for larger scale production through a co-manufacturing facility, and then gets distributed to retail stores through multiple distributors. Recently, Komo launched 11 new ready-to-eat meals through meal delivery apps and a ghost kitchen in Vancouver, British Columbia, allowing Komo another avenue for product development and customer feedback.
