PlantFuel Life Appoints New CEO and Adds Director, Gearing Up for Expansion and New Business Initiatives

25 April 2023

Toronto, Canada – TheNewswire - April 25, 2023 - PlantFuel Life Inc. (“PlantFuel” or the “Company”) (CSE:FUEL), (OTC:PLFLF), (FSE:BR1B) a plant based wellness performance supplement company, is pleased to announce that Connor Yuen has been named as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective immediately. Yuen has been brought on to expand business initiatives and foster relationships with retailers replacing Brad Pyatt, who will continue to serve the company as its Founder and act as a strategic consultant.

Under Pyatt's leadership, Plant Fuel Inc. has grown exponentially and gained recognition as an industry leader in the development of sustainable, plant based performance and protein products. In his new role as a consultant, Pyatt will continue to provide valuable guidance and support to the company while focusing on further advancing the innovative technology behind Plant Fuel Inc.'s products. 

Connor Yuen brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record of driving sales and expanding businesses into new channels. His background in securing financing for capital-intensive projects and managing complex operations makes him the ideal candidate to lead Plant Fuel Inc. into its next phase of growth. The Company has recently seen a surge in interest from large retailers looking to stock its eco-friendly products. Under Yuen's leadership, Plant Fuel Inc. will focus on driving sales, expanding into new markets, and securing the necessary capital to fund its ambitious projects and operations. 

"I am excited to be joining Plant Fuel as CEO and look forward to expanding the business, increasing company revenues and continue delivering innovative, sustainable plant-based solutions to consumers" said Yuen. "Together, we will capitalize on the growing demand for our portfolio products, scale our operations, and position the company for long-term success." Plant Fuel Inc. is confident that Yuen's appointment as CEO will further strengthen its leadership position in the sustainable fuel industry and drive significant growth in the upcoming year. 

While the total protein demand will double to 943.5 million metric tons in 2054, the market for alternative proteins, including plant-based proteins, is expected to grow at 14% annually by 2024 — up to a third of the protein market. The global plant-based protein market alone is expected to reach USD 10.8 billion by 2022 supported by a CAGR of 6.7%. Growing interest demand for plant-based protein alternatives has been largely driven by (1) an increasing awareness about the benefits of protein-rich diet and plant-based alternatives, (2) rising world demand for protein due to rapid population growth, (3) growing consumer interest in foods that promote health and well-being, and (4) adoption of environmental stewardship and protection of animal welfare. In Canada, more than 40% of the population is actively trying to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets. Their compatibility with vegetarian, vegan and "flexitarian" lifestyles is now putting the spotlight on plant-based protein sources.1 

The company would also like to announce the appointment of CFO Andy Wu to the Board of directors. 


Plant Fuel Inc has engaged Creative Direct Marketing Group Inc. for marketing services. CDMG will, as appropriate, create campaigns, reportalogs, newsalogs, e-mails series, and native and display ads for physical and digital mediums, set up and manage remarketing campaigns, and bring attention to the business of the company in consideration of $1,060,000 (U.S.).
