YOOMA Wellness Inc. (CSE:YOOM; AQSE:YOOM), a global vertically integrated wellness platform that develops and markets a portfolio of CBD and wellness brands, is pleased to announce that Boots, the UK’s
leading health and beauty retailer, will stock MYO Plant Nutrition (‘MYO’) products.
The listing includes MYO’s Plant Proteins in 838 stores, branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) and essential amino acids (EAA) in up to 574 stores, and functional sprays in 522 stores.
Launching with Boots accelerates the momentum MYO has already seen in 2021, with products now available in Holland & Barrett, Selfridges, Lloyds Pharmacy and Amazon, amongst others.
MYO products are 100%-plant-based, use clean and innovative ingredients, and focus on the growing area of full-body plant-based wellness, which includes nutrition, the gut, brain, immunity and other key elements of wellness.
Furthermore, MYO holds a leading position with regards to sustainability by using recycled and recyclable outer packaging as well as biodegradable scoops and pouches.
James Lawson Baker, Founder of MYO Plant Nutrition, commented: “This is a major milestone for MYO and we are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Boots, the leading health and beauty retailer in the UK. A listing of this size gives the brand enormous national exposure and deepens our footprint within mainstream UK retail. The listing will support MYO in making plant-based active nutrition and wellness products mainstream and accessible. The partnership is a testament to the high-quality product and brand offering that we have built over the past year. We look forward to building our credibility amongst Boots’ customers going forward.”
Jordan Greenberg, CEO of Yooma, said: “MYO Plant Nutrition is an exceptional example of how Yooma’s buy-and-build strategy creates shareholder value. MYO continues to surpass expectations with its increased availability in UK’s most reputable retailers and it has the honour of being known as one of the few brands to have passed the FSA’s validation assessment.”
Yooma acquired MYO in March 2021, due to the growing market demand for plant-based protein supplements, with a global market size estimated at US$4.3 billion in 2020, projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during a forecast period 2021-2026.
