VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 19, 2021 /CNW/ – Modern Meat Inc., (CSE: MEAT) (“ Modern
Meat “) or (the ” Company “), an award-winning plant-based meat manufacturer, is
pleased to announce that it has signed a letter of intent for the acquisition of Kitskitchen
Health Foods Inc. (“kitskitchen”), an established local plant-based soup company with a
line-up of products that are currently available in many large grocery retailers including
Fresh Street Market and Whole Foods.

Led by an all-female leadership team, kitskitchen has been in business since 2013. Their
commitment to provide natural, locally sourced, sustainable, plant-based soup has led
to a highly engaged consumer base. Currently their soups can be found at 135 retailers
throughout British Columbia and Alberta and kitskitchen has provided an expected
revenue forecast to the Company of $950,000 for 2021.

“The acquisition unites us with a well-established brand with an attractive growth profile.
Kitskitchen product and management aligns with Modern Meat’s philosophy of the fastgrowing plant-based space. We feel the ready-to-eat category in the plant-based space
is under explored. By acquiring a well-recognized local brand and putting our financial
resources behind it, I feel we can grow the sales of kitskitchen significantly,” states Tara
Haddad, CEO of Modern Meat.

In connection with the transaction, Modern Meat will own the distribution rights to the
kitskitchen brands and plans to continue to work with its team. The total purchase price
for this acquisition is 300,000 shares and finder’s fee of 9,000 shares will be issued.

“Kitskitchen is a strategic acquisition for our company as it has established a great local
following with consumers and has a broad existing distribution with many online and
large grocery chains. By implementing our financial expertise with the kits team, we will
be looking to grow its revenues and develop it into a national brand.” States Campbell
Beecher, Head of Finance and Mergers and Acquisitions of Modern Meat.

The completion of this transaction is subject to conditions including the completion of
definitive documentation, approval of the Canadian Securities Exchange and other
customary conditions. There is no certainty the transaction will be completed on the
terms proposed or at all. Further details will be provided in subsequent news releases.
