Planting Hope Reports “Record Year of Growth” in 2022, Quadruples YOY Revenue

The Planting Hope Company (CVE:MYLK) announces its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 2022, and reports it achieved record revenues of $12.2M last year, more than 4.6 times its revenue in 2021. 

“Sesame milk is the first meaningful new Plant Milk subcategory since oat milk”

Planting Hope, whose products include Hope and Sesame sesamemilk, RightRice and Mozaics Veggie Chips, says its 2022 revenues were 358% higher than in 2021, driven by its acquisition of RightRice, significant North America retail expansion, and enthusiastic response to its Barista Blend Sesamemilk in food service and coffee shops. 

“In 2022, we rolled out our flagship Hope and Sesame Barista Blend Sesamemilk to the critical Café channel,” said Julia Stamberger, CEO and co-founder of Planting Hope. “After five years of formulation, development and testing, sesame milk is the first meaningful new Plant Milk subcategory since oat milk and we are rapidly validating its potential to significantly disrupt the Café space and Foodservice channels.

“Additionally, we continue to push forward sustainability initiatives across our products, including Hope and Sesame’s recent Upcycled certification from the Upcycled Food Association.”

Accelerating growth

The company reports it has increased its retail footprint to more than 10,000 grocery locations and secured distribution with major partners such as Dot Foods. 

Stamberger adds, “2022 was a record growth year for Planting Hope: through numerous accomplishments over 12 short months we have proven out acceptance and demand for our products, and laid the platform for accelerated revenue growth and scaling in 2023 and beyond.”
