PlantBased Solutions’ D2C E-commerce Incubator Platform
PlantBased Solutions is excited to announce the launch of an exciting new D2C e-commerce incubator platform which helps develop and launch new brands into a dynamic direct to consumer e-commerce portal. Over the past last year and half we have been working diligently to develop processes for plant-based businesses to seamlessly and efficiently develop and launch new brands through a dynamic D2C e-commerce methodology.
Consumers are buying online
Globally, e-commerce jumped to $26.7 trillion dollars during 2020, spurred on by the pandemic (United Nations of Trade and Development, May 2021), and e-commerce has been considered a life-line for small businesses (Forbes, May 2021). Consumers have come to appreciate and rely on the ease of purchasing anything and everything through the on-line e-commerce marketplace.
How does this work?
During the pandemic, there were limited opportunities to introduce new product brands to consumers. PlantBased Solutions developed a process of by-passing the retail launch and instead launching products directly to the consumer (D2C) through an e-commerce platform powered by PlantBased Solutions. Our website development and digital marketing teams work side-by-side with brands to build, market and launch plant-based products integrating all aspects of a global marketplace. From product integration, orders and inventory to shipping and fulfillment and secure check-out experiences; your online store will have a fully integrated brand product customer experience.
What is a D2C E-commerce Incubator?
Powered by PlantBased Solutions. In the PlantBased Solutions’ newly developed incubator, we develop new or optimize existing e-commerce friendly websites, manage inventory and third-party logistics (3PL) so brands don’t have to be bothered shipping out from their office kitchens. Our D2C Incubator works to leverage existing infrastructure and expertise in the plant-based food space thereby reducing initial start-up related fees and work on a rev-share thereby ensuring our interests are aligned.
What we do:
- Brand Development
- Product Development
- Develop an Optimized Shopify Website
- Support Product / Package Development
- Manage Third Party Logistics (Shelf-stable, Refrigerated & Frozen)
- Develop & Manage Direct Email Marketing
- Develop Creative Ad Marketing

Our market research has shown that most small businesses who utilize Amazon or other third-party sites for their e-commerce business benefit from the large marketing opportunity these sites represent but miss out on a few key opportunities that our new D2C e-commerce incubator platform works to capture. Those opportunities include:
- Communicating directly with your customers.
- Owning and building your email list of your best customers, those that buy your product.
- Increasing your margins by selling at retail prices
