Expands PlantX Into Additional Plant-based Category: Alcoholic Beverages
The Company's board of directors has approved a share consolidation
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / March 22, 2023 / PlantX Life Inc. (CSE:VEGA)(Frankfurt:WNT1)(OTC PINK:PLTXF) ('PlantX' or the 'Company'), the digital face of the plant-based community, operating a one-stop shop for plant-based products, today announced a comprehensive strategic ecommerce partnership with Vegan Wines, one of the leading 100% vegan wine importer/distributors and consumer wine clubs in the U.S. Through this partnership PlantX will continue to serve the plant-based community through an additional product category -- alcoholic beverages - in addition to non-alcoholic beverages and foods.
Vegan Wines (veganwines.com) is a completely vegan-friendly wine importer/distributor and wine club founded in 2017 by Frances Gonzalez, a long-time vegan and wine expert. The company offers an exclusive selection of high-quality vegan wines from around the world that are not only delicious but also cruelty-free. It selects its wines with integrity by selecting wines only from vineyards that they have personally visited. The subscription-based club and online wine shop ships to over 41 states. Frances is also the founder and organizer of VegFest Puerto Rico, a nonprofit established in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria that hosts an annual all-day festival dedicated to promoting plant-based living and sustainability with local farmers, artisans, food vendors, and more.
Leveraging PlantX's existing in-house tech team, marketing/SEO experts, and fulfillment operations in Chicago,
PlantX will be assuming management of Vegan Wines' domain and ecommerce operations, building a more user-friendly VeganWines.com website, and adding its full product catalog to PlantX's websites. The partnership also includes an exclusive collaboration for the vegan food hall that is being opened at the Company's Uptown Chicago XMarket location this year that is expected to attract both brands and consumers to what is expected to be the largest all vegan food halls to exist in the Midwest.
'Adding Vegan Wines is a huge win for PlantX as a technology and ecommerce company,' said PlantX CEO, Lorne Rapkin. 'The brand has a loyal following with many active subscribers who are purchasing monthly packages, and Frances is doing amazing things for the plant-based community. We are excited to offer Vegan Wines' personally selected wines alongside PlantX's own diverse product assortment, and to work with Frances to grow the entire vegan wine category.'
Vegan Wines Founder and CEO Frances Gonzalez said, 'I could not have chosen a better partner to join me on my mission of making the process of choosing and ordering vegan wine easier for everyone than PlantX.'
As part of the collaboration, PlantX and Vegan Wines will co-host a first-of-its kind vegan wine and cheese tasting event at the PlantX Venice store on March 12th from 11am to 3pm PT. Customers are invited to come and explore an exclusive selection of vegan wines. Ms. Gonzalez will be on hand to guide customers through the wine tasting process and help them discover new and exciting flavors.
PlantX will be acquiring a 10% strategic position in VeganWines.com
