Vancouver, B.C. – June 3, 2021: Better Plant Sciences Inc. (CSE: PLNT) (OTCQB: VEGGF) (FSE: YG3) (“Better Plant” or the “Company”), a wellness company that makes and sells plant-based products, has listed its Jusu cold-pressed juices for sale in new retail locations in British Columbia including five Red Barn Markets locations in Greater Victoria, BC and two Vitasave locations in Metro Vancouver, BC.
Jusu focuses on maximizing the nutrient content and flavour of its cold-pressed juices. Jusu juices are made with a hydraulic press that uses thousands of pounds of pressure to extract the maximum amount of liquid from fresh fruits and vegetables and does not use heat or oxygen in the pasteurization process.
On February 8, 2021 Better Plant took over operation of the Jusu juice business which it purchased in Q4 2020. Recently, Better Plant relaunched the juices with new names and new packaging and launched a new version of the Jusubars.com eCommerce website with a consumer delivery platform.
“Red Barn Market Oak Bay is happy to have Jusu back in store. The opportunity to support a local company that is doing so much for the health and wellbeing of the community is our pleasure”, says Scott Travers, Owner and Operator at Red Barn Market, Oak Bay. “Our customers have been waiting for Jusu to relaunch and they will be lining up to get their favourite flavours.”
Better Plant also plans to substantially increase the number of Jusu juice SKUs on offer, with seven new SKUs planned for launch this summer. The focus for the new round of juice launches is to give customers more variety and exciting flavours in line with competitors and market demand. The juices have a 60-day shelf life and are sold individually or as part of a 1, 3 or 5-day cleanse. Better Plant engaged sales broker Thank You Merci, who has assigned three agents to Jusu juice in Canada, to add to Jusu’s in-house sales team, who are focused on engaging and pitching national retailers.
