“Amara adds premier distribution points in both Sobeys and IGA stores, some of North America’s most well-known and established grocery retailers,” stated Marc Aneed, Director and CEO of Eat Well Group. “The demand for plant-based infant nutrition continues to be strong as we accelerate growth across Eat Well Group’s CPG sector. We congratulate the Amara team for ongoing success,” continued Aneed.
Distribution to both Sobeys and IGA locations across Canada adds to Amara’s strong retail footprint with distribution to many of North America’s leading big-box retailers, including; Walmart Canada, Whole Foods, Sprouts Farmer’s Market, HEB, Loblaws and more. Amara is focused on accelerating its omnichannel sales distribution strategy and continued growth across natural health food stores and traditional big-box retailers, in addition to ecommerce.
Eat Well Group’s management believes Amara’s growth can be attributed to the global trend of consumers seeking nutritious plant-based foods to add into their everyday lifestyles, and Amara’s delicious toddler snacks and baby foods being 100% organic with excellent taste. The infant nutrition market is estimated to reach over $109 billion globally by 20271, and Amara is poised to be a leader in the plant-based segment.
