Komo Plant Based Foods Inc (CSE: YUM) or KOMOF on the U.S. OTCQB is preparing to enter the U.S. market to compete with Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods who are both about to roll out plant-based chicken products in the weeks ahead! We believe YUM has a superior plant-based chicken product with their Chick'n Pot Pie!

Click here to read news from one week ago about Beyond's Plant-Based Chicken Tenders set to hit U.S. grocery stores later this month.
Our timing with YUM is absolutely perfect. YUM has developed our #1 favorite brand in the plant-based foods space while successfully launching its initial lineup of plant-based versions of meat and dairy centric comfort foods that taste just as good as the real thing! YUM initially launched its plant-based comfort foods in the Metro Vancouver area where they have already become extremely popular. YUM has been receiving mostly 5 star reviews from nearly everybody who tries their plant-based comfort food products!
NIA has many members who live in the Metro Vancouver area and nearly all of them are extremely successful and enjoy eating healthy plant-based foods even if they have to pay a premium for them. We absolutely love YUM's strategy of initially targeting the most perfect market that they knew would go crazy over their plant-based comfort food products! Over the last 24 hours we have heard from half a dozen NIA members who are already eating Komo's plant-based comfort foods and love them! It doesn't seem like any of them knew that Komo was already a publicly traded company!
YUM issued the following update a few minutes ago as it prepares for its expansion into the U.S. market:
