PlantX Life Inc is pleased to announce the expansion of the Company’s eCommerce platform to the United Kingdom.
PlantX UK will launch under a new domain, www.PlantX.uk, and will offer a similar PlantX experience as PlantX.ca and PlantX.com provide in Canada and the United States, respectively. The new platform will feature an extensive assortment of plant-based goods, an ample indoor plant selection, and a variety of educational resources, including blogs and recipes. Additionally, www.PlantX.uk will complement Bloomboxclub Limited, the Company’s UK-based eCommerce business that sells and delivers indoor plants across the United Kingdom and Germany.
To establish an effective supply chain infrastructure, the Company has partnered with Access Fulfillment, one of the leading fulfillment companies in the United Kingdom. Access Fulfillment has over 20,000 square feet of warehouse space with refrigeration capabilities, which it will use to ensure the centralized storage and distribution of the Company’s plant-based products across the United Kingdom.

The number of UK consumers shifting to a plant-based diet has almost doubled between 2008 and 2019, and the transition to plant-based living in the UK continues to accelerate, according to a recent study in Science of the Total Environment, According to a 2020 market research report, the UK is seen as a global plant-based leader with the largest plant-based market in Europe.
