UpMeals is pleased to announce the expansion of PlantX’s Canadian meal delivery vertical through the addition of a second shipping day that will enhance PlantX’s outreach to its growing plant-based community.
Through its partnership with UpMeals, PlantX’s Canadian meal delivery service enables customers to order either a 3- or a 5- full days’ worth of nutritionally-balanced meals on PlantX’s Canadian e-commerce platform. Since its launch in August 2020, the meal delivery service in Canada has seen remarkable success, as reflected by a rising consumer demand that is now exceeding PlantX’s current capacity to serve its thriving customer-base. Therefore, PlantX has added a second delivery day for its current “set and forget” subscription-based meal program, with meals now being shipped across Canada twice a week, instead of just once a week as established previously. This will enable customers to have increased access to home-delivered meals throughout the entire week, as needed.
“We’re thrilled to see a surging demand for our fresh, healthy and delicious plant-based meals from PlantX customers,” said Drew Munro, Co-Founder and CEO of UpMeals. “Through our innovative platform, UpMeals will produce customized fresh meals for door-to-door delivery through overnight express shipping so PlantX customers can enjoy healthy meals, entrees and snacks, seven days a week.”
The global online food delivery services market is expected to reach $192.16 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 11%1. According to Statistics Canada, an average of 23% of Canadians reported using meal delivery services during the pandemic2, while another research reports suggests that more than 71% of Canadians are expecting to continue to order home-delivered meals at a higher rate than they did prior to the pandemic3.
“Having easy access to healthy, nutritious and fresh meals has never been more relevant and in demand” said Julia Frank, PlantX CEO. “After the challenging year that we experienced as individuals and as a global community, it’s time to slowly recover and enjoy a summer with fewer restrictions, while eating well and feeling amazing and healthy. By increasing access to the PlantX home-delivered meals, we hope to meet our customers’ culinary needs and enhance their health and wellbeing throughout this transition period and beyond.”
