The plant-based industry is laying down roots
From fast-food to fine dining establishments, plant-based protein is becoming an increasingly popular menu item. So, when one producer brought their operation to Canada, they needed a partner to help accommodate their expanding operation.
The Canadian facility accommodated both the production and packaging processes but did not have the freezer space or the general storage area needed to store ingredients, packaging materials—or the finished product. “It was very time-sensitive because the facility that does the manufacturing had barely any freezer space,” explains Max Perreault, Sales Director for Eastern Canada at VersaCold. With a rapidly expanding market adding to existing storage concerns, finding a partner with the ability to scale on-demand was a primary concern.
