Boosh Plant-Based Brands Inc. (CSE: VEGI) (OTCQB: VGGIF) (FSE: 77I) ("Boosh" or the "Company") is proud to announce that over 8,000 consumers and investors visited the largest plant-based expo in Canada; Planted-Expo at which Boosh was the presenting sponsor. At the event Boosh proudly introduced its brand-new shelf stable line of Boosh Mac & Cheeze; Nacho and Better Cheddar to rave reviews, and provided samples to consumers of Boosh's favourite foods including Shephard's Pie, and recently acquired brands such as Salt Spring Harvest pate and Pulse Specialty Kitchen plant-based cheeses.
"We were ecstatic that literally thousands of people stopped by our booth and sampled our wonderful variety of plant-based cheeses, entrees and meals. We also added over 800 social media followers and sold thousands of dollars of products from our Booth. By the end of the event we had even sold out of the Mac & Cheeze lines," states Connie Marples founder and president of Boosh.
"This was an excellent opportunity to meet over one hundred local shareholders and investors in a casual setting, share stories and sample all types of Boosh products," states Jim Pakulis CEO of Boosh. "Just as importantly, management was also able to introduce Boosh to buyers in the food service industry such as the restaurant and bar sectors. In short, the event was a huge success for Team Boosh!"
