Big Mountain Foods expansion sets the stage for global distribution

November 12, 2020

Vancouver-based food manufacturer Big Mountain Foods announced its expansion into a 70,000-square-foot facility to scale up its production capacity by 2021 and compete with other global plant-based brands.

Founded by mother-daughter duo Kimberly Chamberland and Jasmine Byrne, Big Mountain Foods recently began distributing to retail giant Kroger, which provided the momentum for its expansion. At the same time, the company launched four new Veggie Links products across Canada and the U.S. All nine Big Mountain Foods products are gluten, nut, and soy-free, certified vegan, and non-GMO verified.

“I am so proud of the expansion Big Mountain has undergone to get to this point and we are ready to move forward into a larger facility with the top talent in place to execute our product outreach strategy across the USA, Canada, and Asia over the next five years,” said Chamberland, president of Big Mountain Foods. Over the course of two years, the company also underwent an extensive rebrand of its products. The packaging now includes 40 percent less plastic and 25 percent less cardboard to reduce its carbon footprint. By 2025, the company plans to run a zero-waste facility.

Big Mountain Foods is also focusing on its people and putting together a diverse team to support the rapid growth. “With new innovation and brands entering the plant-based space, we’re ready to expand our capacity and execute our vision to be the leader in clean eating while continuing to innovate allergen-free, clean-label products with ingredients our customers know and love,” said Byrne.
