VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 11, 2021 / Naturally Splendid Enterprises Ltd. (“Naturally Splendid”, “NSE” or “the Company”) (FRANKFURT:50N)(TSXV:NSP)(OTC PINK:NSPDF) is pleased to announce that select Denny’s restaurants in Canada will be carrying three (3) NATERA meat-alternative entrees on their menus.
Denny’s will be offering NATERA Garlic Chick-Un Kiev, Seasoned Chick-Un Tenders and Chick-Un Nuggets at five of their BC restaurant locations mid-late June: Denny’s on Broadway, Denny’s Richmond, Denny’s Kingsway, Denny’s at Mt Lehman, and Denny’s Langley. The carefully chosen selection of NATERA products will be prepared and served using Denny’s signature seasonings and sauces, making them unique for their much-valued customers.
Offering NATERA meat-alternatives is an extension of Denny’s commitment to serving quality food without sacrificing flavour or value and extends their commitment to sourcing products that satisfy customer needs. These are values that we are also proud to have at Naturally Splendid.
Naturally Splendid CEO Mr. J. Craig Goodwin states, “Denny’s is an iconic brand in Canada having been in operation for over 60 years and we are proud to provide NATERA entrees to this well-known family dinner. In addition to better personal health, choosing to eat more plant-based foods will drastically cut your carbon footprint as well as reduce water consumption making the planet healthier as well. Whether you’re vegetarian or flexitarian or just looking to try plant-based entrees, you can experience the great taste of NATERA foods in the comfortable setting of a Denny’s Restaurant.”
“Denny’s is a place founded in community, where everyone can enjoy great tasting food at a great value, and we are proud to offer menu items that benefit the health of our guests and communities. In partnership with the team at Naturally Splendid, we are excited to launch the test of seven NATERA-inspired entrees to guests at five of our restaurants in B.C. Upon successful completion of the test, and when all dining restrictions are lifted, we look forward to introducing our most popular NATERA menu items at most Denny’s locations across Canada.” said Deborah Gagnon, President & COO, Denny’s Canada
According to a survey conducted by Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph as part of a study examining awareness of Canada’s Food Guide, 6.5 million Canadians – nearly 20 per cent of the population (up from 6.4 million in October 2018) – are either limiting the amount of meat they eat (the so-called flexitarian diet) or cutting it out entirely. https://nationalpost.com/life/food/more-and-more-canadians-are-limiting-the-amount-of-meat-they-eat-or-cutting-it-out-entirely
Although COVID may have accelerated the popularity of plant-based food, there are multiple factors driving the growth of plant-based eating. These include concern for the environment, health and wellness, ethics, and diversity in protein sourcing. The shift towards plant-based diets is being driven by consumer concern surrounding health and wellbeing as well as sustainable farming and Naturally Splendid is pleased to be working with Denny’s to support this most worthy lifestyle initiative.
