Plant Veda receives license from CFIA to produce branded products in new plant

Plant Veda Foods Ltd, an award-winning dairy alternative products company, is pleased to announce that it has been granted a Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) license to manufacture Plant Veda branded products for national distribution at its new manufacturing facility in Delta. Plant Veda's new state-of-the-art facility now meets CFIA standards and will allow the company to move forward with product production for its growing customer base following the anticipated completion of the first phase of the upgrade later this year.

The CFIA is a government agency dedicated to protecting food, animals and plants to promote the health and well-being of Canada's people, environment and economy. All food manufacturers in Canada must meet the CFIA's regulatory requirements and can only produce food products for commercial use after obtaining a CFIA license.

"The CFIA licensing of the Delta facility is an important milestone. It is the first step in being able to produce at the new facility and sell our products nationwide," said Sunny Gurnani, CEO of Plant Veda.

Plant Veda aims to grow beyond the local market with the sole objective of helping people achieve a healthier and well-rounded plant-based lifestyle. Meeting licensing standards will allow the company to scale further. Plant Veda will not only be able to produce its current product line at the desired rate, but will also be able to increase the development of future product lines once the initial remodeling phase of the facility is complete.

The CFIA license will allow Plant Veda to further expand the capacity of its existing product line to continually meet the growing needs of its customers. With this license, Plant Veda can continue its journey to help more people achieve a plant-based lifestyle. (dpa)
