Modern Plant-Based Foods Inc. recently announced that Modern Meat, its meat alternative line of products, is further expanding in Alberta by reaching over 400,000 potential customers through Calgary Co-Op retail outlets.  The grocery stores began stocking their shelves with Modern Crab-less Cakes in early June.

Local farmers and ranchers opened the first Co-Op store in Calgary over 60 years ago. The concept of independent stores being owned by customers/members gained traction and since then the outfit has grown to 23 grocery stores and over 3,500 employees with further expansion plans underway. Calgary Co-Ops offer products and services including local fresh food, pharmacy, fuel, wine, spirits, beer, cannabis, and home health care.

“We are excited to announce a new retail partnership for our gourmet line of plant-based products,” said Tara Haddad, Founder and CEO of Modern Plant-Based Foods. “The Calgary Co-Op has a reputation of offering a carefully curated selection of top-quality Canadian products and we are thrilled to be listed with them.”

Modern Meat continues to make steady progress into the Western Canadian market.
