“We are thrilled to once again partner with a powerhouse retail chain that aligns with our vision of providing families with high-quality, nutritious, and sustainable options. This collaboration significantly propels our mission of making plant-based nutrition readily available to a broader Canadian audience,” said Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO and Co-Founder of Else Nutrition.

The Company also announces that it has agreed to amend the exercise price and expiry date of an aggregate of 2,857,142 common share purchase warrants of the Company. The warrants were originally issued on June 29, 2022, pursuant to an offering of units of the Company. Each warrant may be exercised to acquire a common share of the Company at a price of $1.25 per share until June 29, 2027.
