Through distributor partners KeHE and United Natural Foods, Inc.

The extensive network of natural food stores and co-ops in the West has been especially strong in the early-adoption of Else Plant-Based nutrition and this trend is anticipated to continue.
"We are delighted that we now have access to thousands of independent and small-business grocers, and to more than 5,000 food co-ops, through our national distribution partners. This large market segment can help us expand the reach of our clean label, Plant-Based nutrition to families nationwide," stated Hamutal Yitzhak, CEO and Co-Founder of Else Nutrition.
