LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Soylent, maker of award-winning nutrition shakes with a mission to make complete, sustainable nutrition accessible, appealing and affordable to all, today announced a retail expansion throughout Canada. This expansion includes Soylent’s first entry into brick-and-mortar retail at Longos, Thrifty’s and select Sobeys.
Now in 121 Canadian retailers nationwide, Soylent has partnered with grocery wholesaler United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) to continue its expansion in Canada, with additional in-store retailers to be announced soon. In addition to already being able to purchase Soylent products through Amazon.ca, Canadians will soon have the opportunity to buy Soylent products through Walmart's Canadian online Marketplace (Walmart.ca). A selection of Soylent’s drinks and powders will be available across these retailers, including its best-selling drink flavors, Cafe Mocha and Chocolate.
“We’re thrilled to be expanding our presence in Canada, a market we know well,” says Ross Sklar, CEO of Starco Brands, Inc., Soylent’s parent company. “We’ve worked diligently with our partners at UNFI Canada to ensure that our highly functional, non-dairy and high-protein beverages and meal replacements remain widely accessible to Canadians through each of our in-store and online retail partners.”
Soylent was recently named the "Best Meal Replacement Shake" by Kantar Research, as voted by 40,000 consumers. Soylent's Creamy Chocolate has even outperformed dairy-based category leaders containing more sugar and less nutrition in blind taste tests.
Soylent's complete nutrition shakes are naturally flavored, crafted with 28 vitamins and minerals, 12 brain-boosting nutrients, nine essential amino acids, Omega-3s and Omega-6s, and include complete, plant-based protein with at least 16g in every bottle.

Made from sustainably grown plant-based ingredients, Soylent's line of products is scientifically developed to provide the vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates and protein that the body needs - all in convenient, affordable packages. Soylent's innovative product line-up includes Complete Nutrition Powders and Ready-to-Drink shakes, 100-Calorie Snack Bars, High Protein Nutrition Shakes, and Energy boosting nutrition shakes.
