As The Demand For Plant-Based Food Soars, Dot Foods Partners With Plant Based Foods Association To Make Healthy Food More Accessible In North America

The Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA), the trade association representing 180 plant-based food companies including Beyond Meat, Miyoko’s, and Dot Foods, the largest food industry redistributor in North America, announced a new partnership recently that aims to increase access to plant-based foods.

Currently, Dot Foods carries 134,000 products from 1,000 food industry manufacturers.

PBFA is partnering with Dot to help more plant-based food companies increase their distribution potential, PBFA will also support companies with onboarding.

“We are excited to collaborate with Dot Foods and address a key barrier for many plant-based food companies: distribution,” Sabina Vyas, Senior Director of strategic initiatives for the Plant Based Foods Association, said in a statement. This partnership will help companies with scalability and will ultimately result in consumers having more plant-based options everywhere they eat outside of the home.”

The demand for plant-based foods is on the rise and with increased innovation in the plant-based space, being able to scale fast enough to reach consumer demand can be a challenge for plant-based food companies.

Dot serves as a connector to all major operators, distributors, and retailers. If a plant-based food manufacturer works with Dot, their products have the potential to enter new markets that would have otherwise been difficult to reach. By working with Dot Foods, companies can focus on scaling-up production of delicious plant-based foods.

With PBFA’s recent launch of The Power Plant, their grab-n-go, and culinary training program, this new partnership with Dot Foods will provide program participants with increased confidence in the consistent supply of plant-based foods for their retail and food service needs.

“Our team at Dot Foods is witnessing the market for plant-based foods explode,” said Rodd Willis, Director of Natural and Specialty Foods for Dot. “We want to ensure our customers have access to a larger variety of these foods, and this partnership with PBFA will help us do that.”

Dot purchases products directly from manufacturers and resells them to its distributor customers, making the supply chain more efficient and cost-effective for all involved. Through the new partnership with PBFA, interested manufacturers will have enhanced access to Dot’s natural and specialty team to evaluate how the company may be able to assist with their distribution needs
