VANCOUVER, British Columbia — September 20, 2021/ CNW/ PlantX Life Inc. (CSE: VEGA) (Frankfurt: WNT1) (OTCQB: PLTXF) (“PlantX” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has launched as a Seller on Walmart Marketplace in the United States.
PlantX will have over 500 plant-based grocery items ranging from a variety of brands such as Oatly, Nature’s Path, Made in Nature and Simply Organic available on Walmart Marketplace in the United States.
“The decision to apply and launch as a Seller on Walmart’s US Marketplace was inspired by PlantX’s experience as a Seller on the Walmart Marketplace in Canada, where PlantX has launched over 900 distinct plant-based items since June,” said PlantX CEO, Lorne Rapkin. “The new agreement will enable PlantX to integrate its growing selection of plant-based products onto the Walmart platform in the US and have access to Walmart’s extensive customer network and digital marketing resources, while maintaining full control over our inventory, pricing, fulfilment and customer care.”
“Having access to Walmart’s entire marketplace ecosystem throughout Canada and the US is a tremendous opportunity for PlantX,” said PlantX Founder, Sean Dollinger. “This move should ultimately help PlantX as it positions itself as a leader in the plant-based space.”
