CANBUD has entered the plant-based protein market with the Empathy Plant Co., creating 5 SKUs of wellness products with a 100% natural blend of plant materials and hemp seed protein that contains all 9 essential amino acids. This offering is the only certified 100% compostable plant-based wellness brand on the market with bio-based materials in stand-up packaging made of renewable forestry wood pulp cellulose. Furthermore, the products are naturally sweetened, zero sugar added, non-GMO project verified, gluten-free, soy-free and available in multiple flavours, positioning this brand along with industry leaders Vega, Sunwarrior and Garden of Life. The trademark has been secured with the CIPO and positioning for North American harmonization has commenced.
CANBUD’s VP of Marketing offers his thoughts: “With the introduction of the Empathy Plant Company we will be the first (and only) certified compostable plant-based wellness brand. We believe product packaging cannot be a part of the problem. Unless we take a stand on the use of plastic, packaging norms will continue to exist and as steward to the Earth, we cannot allow this to happen. Our next step is to then change the tone of the conversation. Traditionally the plant-based dialogue has been one of extreme divisiveness; meat eater versus vegan. If we are to shift the needle we believe more empathetic conversations need to be had. We need to understand each others’ points of view and not instil shame or fear. Only when this conversation moves forward will we be able to align our sustainability goals with cultural opinions. Inclusion is our tone…and an empathetic mindset will help drive the results we would like to see. Ultimately that’s having more people incorporate plant-based offerings into their diets.”
