August 16, 2021 update – ShopVejii.com now offers same-day delivery across the Lower Mainland in B.C.
Vancouver’s Vejii has launched an online marketplace for vegan and plant-based products for Canada’s estimated 2.3 million vegetarians and 850,000 vegans.
Vejii operates a multi-vendor platform and makes it possible for startup brands to gain national exposure and established brands looking to target new customers. Vejii launched its platform in the U.S. in November of 2020 and has been scaling rapidly, growing both its customer base and an assortment of vegan products.
“For our Canadian launch, we are beginning by offering a thoughtfully curated selection of plant-based meat, dairy and seafood products, based on our top selling products in the U.S.,” said Kory Zelickson, CEO of Vejii. “We are committed to making plant-based food more accessible, while also supporting plant-based food producers, especially small businesses.”
“There are so many innovative plant-based startup brands that we are able to assist by providing national exposure,” said Zelickson. “The Vejii platform has been inspired by the innovators and founders that our team has had the privilege of working with. By providing startups with exposure we both help the brand and provide our customers with high-quality, plant-based alternatives that they may not have had access to before.”
The platform incorporates machine learning, AI, smart lists, targeted product recommendations, and proprietary technology to provide an enhanced shopping experience to its customers. Everything at Vejii is built starting with the customer first.
