(TSXV:MYLK)(FRA:J94) ('Planting Hope' or the 'Company'), a plant-based food and beverage company focused on producing the world's most nutritious and planet-friendly products, is pleased to feature the Company's new product lines at the 2022 Winter Fancy Food Show, which will run February 6-8, 2022 at the Las Vegas Convention Center booth #4126.

Hope and Sesame® Sesamemilk

  • Vegan
  • A complete source of protein: 8 grams of protein per serving (complete protein = contains all nine of the essential amino acids that humans need to obtain from food sources)
  • An excellent source of vitamin D and calcium
  • Certified Gluten-Free
  • Certified Kosher
  • Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified by the Plant Based Foods Association
  • The Unsweetened flavors contain 0 grams of sugar and are keto-friendly

Hope and Sesame® has unlocked the dense nutrition in tiny sesame seeds to create a delicious plant milk that is both ultra-nutritious and highly sustainable. The new non-GMO sesamemilk is available in three flavors in refrigerated 48 oz bottles (Unsweetened Original, Unsweetened Vanilla and Chocolate Hazelnut); six flavors in shelf-stable 1L Tetra Pak cartons (Unsweetened Original, Unsweetened Vanilla, Original, Vanilla, Chocolate and Chocolate Hazelnut); and the new Barista Blend sesamemilk, specially formulated to perform in hot and iced beverages. This new non-GMO refrigerated sesamemilk line showcases new branding with bold and whimsical packaging that highlights the magic of sesame.

Mozaics Real Veggie Chips

  • #1 ingredient = real veggies
  • Popped (not fried!) and full of flavor (Salsa, Sea Salt and BBQ)

Unlike other snack bags that are either non-degradable or require commercial composting, the new Mozaics™ packaging does not require separate recycling or disposal and breaks down in any landfill once disposed of in the normal waste stream.

A modern twist on the beloved Italian dish, RightRice® has reimagined risotto with the first-of-its-kind, shelf-stable, dairy-free risotto that is easy to cook in one pot in just 12 minutes. While traditional risotto is labor-intensive and time-consuming, RightRice® Risotto could not be easier - or faster - to make. No more standing over a hot stove stirring for 30+ minutes! Packed with plant-based protein and fiber (with way less carbs than traditional risotto), RightRice® Risotto is made with 90% veggies, meeting the growing consumer demand for quick and convenient plant-based meal solutions. Fantastic on its own or paired with a favorite protein, RightRice® Risotto is completely customizable and a great option for vegans and flexitarians alike.

About Hope and Sesame®

Hope and Sesame® has cracked the code on unlocking the dense nutrition in tiny sesame seeds to create an important new trend in plant milk: sesamemilk, both ultra-nutritious and highly planet-friendly. Sesame is sustainable, requiring very little water to cultivate, it's naturally drought- and pest-resistant, and can self-pollinate. Sesamemilk is nutritionally comparable to dairy milk, delivering 8g of complete protein per serving (including all 9 essential amino acids) - that's 8x the protein in most nut milks and 3x the protein in most oat milks. Hope and Sesame® sesamemilk is vegan, a good source of protein, an excellent source of vitamin D and calcium, is Certified Gluten-Free and Certified Kosher, and is free from soy and dairy. All Hope and Sesame® products are Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified by the Plant Based Foods Association. Hope and Sesame® was awarded Best Milk Alternative and Best Plant-Based Sustainability in FoodBev's 2021 World Plant-Based Food Awards and received the 2020 Sofi Award for Best New Product, Plant-Based Milk from the Specialty Food Association.
