Boosh Plant-Based Brands Inc. (CSE: VEGI) (OTCQB: VGGIF) (FSE: 77I) ("Boosh" or the "Company") is proud to announce the launch of their appetizer line "Amuse Boosh".

Inspired by the French term Amuse-bouche, which refers to a small appetizer and literally translated means "mouth amuser" it is a perfect way to spotlight our recently acquired brands Saltspring Harvest Végé-pâté and Dips, and Pulse Kitchen Plant Based Cheese under one fun, vibrant Boosh Brand.

Boosh's new addition in Amuse Boosh line will include Almond feta with Oregano and Olives, as well as a Merlot and Peppercorn Pate. The new line compliments our original flavours consumers have come to love from Pulse Kitchen and Saltspring Harvest.

"This product launch is super exciting for me personally since I've been heavily invested in its creation for over a year," states founder and president, Connie Marples. "There is nothing I love more when I get together with friends or family than an assortment of good cheese, pâté and dips to nosh over. This line is super versatile - the pâté is amazing in a sandwich and if you add water to the cashew cheese and heat it up it is the most delicious creamy sauce for pasta, veg or chips. Truly one of the most delicious dips I've ever tried."

"Boosh's long-term growth trajectory is centered around providing differentiating products in the plant-based sector. This is another prime example of how we provide unique, tasty, products that the whole family can enjoy," states Jim Pakulis, CEO of Boosh.

The Amuse Boosh Line will be produced in our newly retrofitted facility in Penticton B.C. under the direction of Stephanos Liapis (former owner of Pulse Kitchen) who is taking the role of Amuse Boosh Production Manager. Recent upgrades to kitchen equipment and packaging systems include a new mixer, oven, depositor, packaging machinery and additional refrigeration. This will allow for increased production capacity to meet expected demands from Canada sales and export to the US.

Overview

Analysts project the plant-based meat market has the potential to grow by US$7.21 billion by 2025, with the market’s growth potential to accelerate at a CAGR of 25.14 percent. Consumers and national governing bodies have seen the appeal of more sustainable, plant-based meat alternatives as a long-term food production solution. Put in your source for the above stats

Canada, a global leader in plant protein, has invested over C$950 million in its SuperCluster initiative, with Protein Industries Canada standing as one of five sector recipients of that investment. With rapid popularity in plant-based food alternatives, investors could see exceptional early economic upside in these emerging markets across North America and the rest of the world.

Also, Boosh intends to prepare for its expansion into US markets and roll out a more comprehensive commercial strategy targeting lifestyle channels in the Fall.
