Vancouver, British Columbia — September 15, 2020 — Vegaste Technologies Corp. (the “Company” or “Vegaste”) (CSE: VEGA), is pleased to announce that the Company has added Minor Figures oat milk for sale on its PlantX e-commerce platform, www.PlantX.com.
The addition allows PlantX, the digital face of the plant-based community and the one-stop-shop for everything plant-based, to further expand its category verticals, which now includes or will soon include plant-based vitamins and supplements from Stay Wyld Organics, pre-made meals from LA-based chef Gregg Drusinsky, groceries like Mid-Day Squares plant-based chocolate bars, and the Company’s own PlantX Canadian glacial water.
Minor Figures oat milk is a 100% plant-based, sugar-free oat milk. Using oats sourced from the UK and Belgium, Minor Figures oat milk is naturally engineered to pair well with coffee for the benefit of both baristas and consumers. This oat milk does not split in light roast coffees like it does in other brands and when steamed, it creates a micro-foam texture that is perfect for specialty coffee drinks. The production of oat milk demands less water than cow and other animal-based milks, thereby contributing to a smaller carbon footprint during its production.
Minor Figures is a rapidly growing brand that aims to provide food products using simple, natural ingredients with few additives and without compromising on flavor or quality.
“We are very excited to include Minor Figures oat milk in our online selection,” said Sean Dollinger, PlantX Founder. “We love this brand of oat milk, the ingredients are the cleanest and it’s the best taste we’ve all had in coffee.”
“PlantX and Minor Figures not only believe in providing the best quality products to consumers, but said Toby Keil, Minor Figures West Coast Sales Director.
Since its inception in October 2019, the Company’s PlantX platform has quickly emerged as an industry leader. As the fledgling plant-based sector continues its explosive growth, the Company will be at the forefront by continually evolving and delivering new ways to expand PlantX. With its forward-looking, cutting edge approach, the Company will continue to secure significant partnerships across North America while exploring innovative ways to expand both its e-commerce capabilities and digital resources to help educate, inspire, and uplift consumers.
