Komo Announces Product of the Year Nomination by the B.C. Food and Beverage Association

Komo Plant Based Foods Inc. (CSE:YUM) (OTCQB:KOMOF) (FRA:9HB) ("Komo") is pleased to announce its newest product, Mac & Greens, has been nominated for Product of the Year by the British Columbia Food and Beverage Association ("BCFB") for the 2022 awards

Product of the Year is BCFB's flagship award - the winner is selected a bit differently from the other BCFB awards. For Product of the Year, 10 finalists go on to the Product of the Year competition on October 3rd where a panel of judges will crown the winner. Komo's latest innovation, Mac & Greens, has been nominated as one of 10 finalists. The Mac & Greens is Komo's plant-based take on the classic macaroni and cheese with a wholesome twist. It's made with a cheezy oat sauce, basil pesto, greens including spinach, parsley and edamame and is topped with garlicky panko breadcrumbs.

"Having Mac & Greens nominated for the BC Food and Beverage Association's 2022 product of the year award is a great honour for Komo. To have such a newly launched product gain recognition quickly demonstrates market interest in Komo's high quality natural food products," says Komo President and CEO William White.

The Mac & Greens was recently in the news as it was selected, as part of Komo's 9 SKUS, to be on the shelves of Loblaws and Loblaw banner stores in early November of 2022. The Mac & Greens was first launched in March 2022.

Earlier this year, Komo took home the VegNews Best of Show Award 2022 for Best New Vegan Product for its plant-based lasagna at the Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, California.

BCFB is a not-for-profit industry association representing food and beverage manufacturers in British Columbia, whose membership represents approximately $7 billion in industry revenues.

Komo is also pleased to announce changes in management, including the appointment of Frédéric Gagné to the role of President for Komo Plant Based Comfort Foods Inc, Komo's operating subsidiary. Fred has been a chef for over 25 years around the world and more recently a plant-based chef for the last 7 years. Fred was culinary trained in Quebec, Canada. He is the former executive chef of one of Western Canada's biggest restaurants, where he oversaw a team of 42 chefs operating a $13m a year business. Fred Gagné has worked with Komo since October 2020 and has been promoted to President from his previous role as the director of culinary development for Komo. He has been a major contributor to the success and quality of products Komo continues to deliver. Jeffrey Ma is no longer serving as President and CEO of the company's operating subsidiary. Komo has stopped operations of its UberEats, Skip the Dishes and DoorDash ghost kitchen as it is now focused on its higher margin business of frozen foods.
