VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – Planet Based Foods Global Inc. (CSE: PBF) (OTCQB: PBFFF) (FRA: AZ0) (“PBFG“, “Planet Based Foods” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a pair of definitive  agreements with renowned supermarket chains, Quality Food Centers (or “QFC“) and Fred Meyer (collectively known herein as the “Supermarkets“).

Consumers seeking Planet Based Foods’ nutritious plant-based alternatives will be able to find the Company’s products across 56 QFC stores in Washington and Oregon, as well as 86 Fred Meyer stores throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho. This announcement derives from Planet Based Foods’ November 15th, 2022, major press release confirming the partnership with mainstream grocery distributor, Kroger. Both QFC and Fred Meyer are two subsidiaries of Kroger since their respective mergers in 19981.  Details regarding the Kroger and Planet Based Foods announcement can be found here.

When asked for comment, Braelyn Davis, Planet Based Foods CEO and co-founder stated, “The customer is always right, and they’re demanding more health-conscious food alternatives each and every day. We’re excited to grow our regional distribution in the Pacific Northwest and partner with these exemplary supermarket retailers to showcase our products. As for what’s most important for us right now, it would have to be keeping up with the demand for our products, and sustaining our notable growth trajectory.”

About QFC

QFC is a supermarket chain with 62 stores in the Puget Sound region of the state of Washington and in the Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area. Founded in 1955, QFC (formerly known as Lake Hills Thriftway until 19631) is a popular subsidiary of Kroger since the companies merged in 1998.  The supermarket chain has recently commenced offering more health-conscious foods, which is evident from partnerships with emerging companies in the food technology and meat alternative industries such as Planet Based Foods. QFC still offers staple products including snacks, dairy, bakery, frozen foods, general grocery, gasoline, meat, pharmacy, produce and seafood. QFC is headquartered in Bellevue, Washington.

About Fred Meyer

Fred Meyer is an American chain of supermarkets that was founded in 1922 in Portland, Oregon by Fred G. Meyer. The supermarket chain merged with Kroger in 1998, though stores remained with their original name Fred Meyer to sustain brand recognition. The stores are found throughout the Pacific Northwest including those in Oregon (headquarters), Washington, Idaho and Alaska. Fred Meyer has been a grocery pioneer since its inception. As one of the first in the United States to offer one-stop shopping, the supermarket retailer is now partnering with food technology and plant-based alternative producers to remain ahead of the curve, and keep up with current consumer trends. Currently, there are over 130 Fred Meyer locations.
