Else Nutrition Launches on Amazon Canada on the Heels of 84% Sales Growth on Amazon.com
Aug 22nd, 2022 7:00 EST
Else launched on Amazon.com in the United States in September 2020, and in less than 2 years grew to an annual business of 4m CAD. In this short period, Else’s offerings grew from a single SKU to three product lines with more than 15 SKUs. In its Q2 2022 financial results Else reported outstanding results on the Amazon platform - 84% QoQ sales increase and doubling its loyal subscriber community on the platform from 1,000 to almost 2,000.
The Else Amazon.ca launch includes a full range of Canadian compliant products with bilingual compliant packaging, including a Toddler nutrition product, Kids shakes in Vanilla and Chocolate flavors, and to be soon followed by Supper Cereals for babies from 6 months and older in a few flavors.
Hamutal Yitzhak, Co-Founder and CEO of Else Nutrition, said: "We are very excited to enter the Canadian market and we believe that Amazon.ca will be a key part of our growth strategy in Canada, as it has been in the United States. Canadian consumers have demonstrated a continued excitement towards our brand, and we are proud to be able to offer them plant-based complete nutrition options for their toddlers and children through the leading e-commerce platform in Canada.
Mrs. Yitzhak continued, “While Amazon.com and our own e-store led our sales growth in the US, followed by strong retail growth, in Canada we expect online and retail sales to grow together, in a true omnichannel fashion, and at a fast pace.”
Canadians have shown a growing propensity to shop online and Amazon.ca is leading the Canadian e-commerce market, with e-commerce net sales of US$9,818 million in 2021. Further, the Canadian online grocery space has shown resilience and growth, as Canadians continue to purchase groceries online post-pandemic. A 2021 study conducted by Leger Research found that consumer demand for plant-based foods is growing in Canada. Recent data shows that two-thirds (67%) of Canadians consume plant-based foods frequently, and 31% of Canadians plan to eat more plant-based foods within the next year.
