Hemp-Based Meat Producer Planet Based Foods Partners With World-Renowned Distributors

Planet Based Foods, which specialises in hemp-based meat products, announces new distribution agreements with KeHE Distributors, United Natural Foods, Inc, and DPI Specialty Foods.

The San Diego company has enjoyed a successful year, having debuted the first plant-based meats made with hemp as the primary ingredient on the US market just this February. Taquitos made from the hemp meat were showcased in March shortly before the company floated on the US-based OTCQB equity market under the symbol PBFFF.

This April saw Planet Based’s launch on Amazon, in August the company announced its first retail distribution, and most recently, in October, it entered a new manufacturing partnership with Cedarlane Natural Foods to increase production capacity.
