Hemp-based Food Company Raises C$3 Million, Expands Store Presence

Four grocery chains will add Planet Based Foods’ taquitos later this month.

Hemp-based food company Planet Based Foods Global Inc. (CSE: PBF) (OTCQB: PBFFF) (FRA: AZ0) raised C$3 million in a private placement of subordinate voting shares for C$0.10 per share. The net proceeds will be used for general working capital and corporate purposes.

The company has also entered into a C$200,000 loan agreement secured against the company’s assets with a 10% interest rate. The loan will mature on Feb. 28, 2024.


Planet Based Food’s best news, however, was that two versions of its taquitos will be found various Lazy Acres Natural Markets, New Leaf Community Markets, and Lunardi’s Markets store locations this month.

“We’re happy to be disrupters in the culinary landscape,” said Braelyn Davis, CEO and co-founder of Planet Based Foods. “I’m happy that Planet Based Foods can remain at the forefront of food technology with our hemp-formulated superfood products. Our goal was to get our products out to the masses, and with our strategic partnerships in place, we’re achieving just that. The best of all, the feedback for our products has been fantastic.”
