Else Nutrition Surpasses 11,000 Stores in North America

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ELSE NUTRITION HOLDINGS INC. (BABY) (BABYF) (0YL.F) ("Else" or the "Company"), a leading producer of innovative plant-based baby, toddler, and children's nutrition, announces that its products are now listed in over 11,000 retail stores in North America. Else expects that all of these stores will be selling by Q2 2023. The Company began 2022 with roughly 1,200 retail locations and successfully grew that base by about 10X.

Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO of Else Nutrition commented, “We are very pleased with the strong retail channel growth we achieved in North America, which surpassed our expectations by a great margin in both pace and scope. We have already become a national brand, trusted by leading retailers, and we expect this trend to continue to grow in the future.

Else began 2022 with roughly 1,200 natural food stores, most of which carried only one SKU; Else Toddler Organic product. At the time, Sprouts Farmers Market was the most prominent retail chain offering Else’s products. One year later, we are proud to announce that we are now listed in over 11,000 stores, and our points of distribution grew from a few thousand to more than 25,000.

Our growth in US mass retailer, drug stores, grocery, and specialty channels demonstrate Else’s growing brand equity and strong consumer demand. We also began our entry into Canada a few months ago with London Drugs and quickly grew to more than 2,000 doors with Metro Ontario and other national grocery and drug retailers soon to be announced.”
