Millions of us are on a health kick. We’ve become far more health conscious. We want to look better and feel better. To do so, we’re eating healthier than ever before, more aware of what we’re putting in our mouths. It’s why millions of people are turning to functional foods and super foods. All in an effort to address specific health concerns and performance needs, boost immune systems, increase day-to-day productivity, and even focus. In fact, there’s been so much demand, the functional foods market could be worth up to $275.77 billion, and expand by an estimated 7.9% a year, according to Global View Research. That could be a significant catalyst for companies, such as Rritual Superfoods Inc. (CSE:RSF)(OTC:RRSFF), Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BABY)(OTCQX: BABYF) Very Good Food Company Inc. (CSE:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), Laird Superfood Inc. (NYSE:LSF), and (NASDAQ:AMZN). Rritual Superfoods (CSE:RSF)(OTC:RRSFF) Launching Amazon Store In USA Rritual Superfoods Inc. just announced the full line of Rritual products have passed the approval process for listing on the Company’s Amazon Store in the USA, planned for the end of June. The Company has partnered with Orca Pacific, a full-service Amazon agency, for the build and optimization of the Rritual Amazon store and to execute the Company’s digital marketing strategy. Engaging with Orca and launching on Amazon will strongly support Rritual’s corporate mission for products to be within an arm’s length of consumer desire and be available for convenient purchase. “Rritual’s Amazon launch represents a significant milestone for the Company,” said Mr. David Kerbel, Rritual CEO. “Rritual’s multi-stage targeted launch is focused primarily on ‘being where the customers are,’ and no storefront in our world can help us more than Amazon to achieve that objective.” 'Based on a survey done by Feedvisor on 2000+ customers in the U.S., 89% of the buyers are more likely to purchase from Amazon than any other eCommerce website.' Since winning the ECRM Buyers Choice Award in late 2020, Rritual and Amazon have been in discussions, and actively engaged in the effort to launch the Rritual Amazon store. Rritual is building a Superfood Platform focused on wide distribution and modern innovation. At the forefront of innovation in the space, Rritual is driven to be the premium brand in the emerging functional mushroom and adaptogenic superfood market. Providing consumers with access to Rritual’s product line on Amazon is essential to the Company’s ambition to help lead and define the superfoods category. In partnership with Orca the Company will work towards a listing on Amazon Prime. “Once Rritual goes live on Amazon, it instantly becomes the focal point for our digital strategy, introducing the brand to many more customers and providing us with data and insights that will inform our leadership team in the ways we can be even more effective in serving customers and maximizing our opportunities for growth in every facet of our marketing program,” added Peter Palarchio, Director of Marketing for Rritual. Rritual product offerings are all USDA-certified organic and are a caffeine-free option that can be mixed with other beverages or enjoyed by itself. Rritual's proprietary Immune-Synergy Six Mushroom Blend is the only functional health product on the market that contains a daily prebiotic blend which nourishes a healthy gut microbiome and facilitates balanced digestive function.

Plant-based is the grocery category to watch right now as brands continue to innovate by using new ingredients and processes that make plant-based products exciting for shoppers. And in the laid-back days of summer, we find that customers are breaking out of their routines and are more open to trying something new, whether they’re longtime vegans or just starting to experiment with plant-based eating.” Legal Disclaimer / Except for the historical information presented herein, matters discussed in this article contains forward-looking statements that are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such statements.
