Vancouver, BC – Just in time for Women’s History Month, mother-daughter owned-and-operated Big Mountain Foods has announced its expansion into a 70,000 square foot facility.
Led by Kimberly and Jasmine Chamberland, the natural vegan food manufacturer has made exciting distribution partnerships with retail chains such as Kroger and Loblaws which, paired with their local success, helped facilitate the move into the sprawling new facility in Delta, BC. The space will provide the company with the tools and international reach to make their plant-based foods more accessible than ever. Big Mountain Foods also aims to have the facility be zero-waste by 2025.
“I am so proud of the expansion Big Mountain Foods has undergone to get to this point and we are ready to move forward into a larger facility with the top talent in place to execute our product outreach strategy across the USA, Canada, and Asia over the next five years,” says Kimberly Chamberland, CEO of Big Mountain Foods.
Big Mountain Foods also just launched four new “Veggie Links” products across Canada and the US. The sausages, which come in styles from chorizo to bratwurst, are made from Saskatchewan-grown split peas—and, like all of Big Mountain’s products, are certified-vegan, gluten, nut, and soy-free, and non-GMO verified. The strong commitment to sustainability is just one reason why Big Mountain Foods won the Emerging Exporter Award from Business in Vancouver in 2021.
“With new brands entering the plant-based space, we’re ready to expand our capacity and execute our vision to be the leader in clean eating while continuing to innovate allergen-free, clean-label products with ingredients our customers know and love,” Jasmine adds.
