Komo Plant Based Foods Inc., a premium frozen plant-based food company, is pleased to announce that it has successfully ramped up production through its new co-manufacturing partner and completed fulfilment last week of purchase orders for all four of its distributors.

This shipment of products have been produced with newly updated, retail-ready packaging and refreshed formulas.

“We are pleased to now have the production capability to expand the distribution of our plant-based products,” says Jeffrey Ma, President and CEO of Komo’s operating subsidiary, Komo Comfort Foods. “We launched locally earlier this year with a speed to market approach locally and to validate our product-market fit in the frozen food category. With the packaging and formula revamp, we were able to incorporate the feedback from our customers over the past few months. Finding the right co-manufacturing partner was our goal for the fourth quarter of this year to help unlock our ability to supply our products. This paves the way for expansion of our direct to consumer business and retail distribution in the United States and Canada. More importantly, we continue to pursue our mission to make plant-based meals a staple at every dinner table.”

Komo currently manufactures seven plant-based frozen products, including plant-based Lasagna, Shepherd's Pie and Chickenless Pot Pie and has recently launched a new line - Komo Plant-Based Meal HelpersTM - versatile meal starters to allow the creation of many dishes at home.
