VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2022 / Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. (CSE:YUM)(OTCQB:KOMOF)(FRA:9HB) ("Komo" or the "Company") a premium plant-based food company, made its first in-person, U.S. trade show debut at Natural Products Expo West (NPEW), at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. At the conference, Komo took home the VegNews Best of Show Award 2022 for Best New Vegan Product of the show.

Founded in 2000, VegNews is one of the most established vegan news sources in the world. It produces four magazines annually, reaching 3.6 million people monthly across print, digital, and social media.

"This was the first time that we showcased our Komo product lineup at an in-person U.S. trade show," said William White, CEO of Komo. "The response to our products was overwhelmingly positive, with our Plant-Based Lasagna even taking home a major prize at the conference."

Komo's Plant-Based Comfort Food Lineup Features:

  • Komo Plant-Based Lasagna (VegNews Best of Show Award 2022 for Best New Vegan Product): Easy to bake and serve, with two sizes available: two-serving (600g) or full-size (1.42kg).
  • Komo Plant-Based Shepherd's Pie: Frozen for freshness, easy to bake and serve, with two sizes available: two-serving (600g) or full-size (1.42kg).
  • Komo Chickenless Pot Pie: Frozen for freshness, easy to bake and serve. Each 900g pie has 4-5 servings.
  • Komo Bolognese Sauce: Gluten-free and soy-free. Frozen for freshness, easy to thaw, heat and serve. Each 454g package serves 3-4.
  • Komo BBQ Pulled Mushroom: Gluten-free and soy-free. Frozen for freshness, easy to thaw, heat and serve. Each 454g package serves 3-4.

"Participation in Expo West is a major stepping stone as we focus on growing our distribution network in the U.S. through retail, wholesale, and eCommerce channels," added White. "We believe that there is a significant gap in the plant-based food market that we are filling with our lineup of multi-serve plant-based meals. Eating plant-based should never feel like a trade-off, and doesn't have to be complicated."

The Plant-Based Food Association reported that sales of plant-based frozen meals reached $520 million in 2020, up 29% from 2019. And the American Frozen Food Institute's 2021 Power of Frozen Report detailed that 71% of consumers would like more frozen meals with increased levels of fruits and/or vegetables and 51% seek meatless entrées.
