(CSE: VEGN) (FSE: VGP) (OTC PINK: VGANF) (“Plant&Co” or the “Company“), a modern health and wellness company curating delicious plant-based foods, is pleased to announce that it is proceeding with a corporate reorganization of assets by way of a plan of arrangement (the “Arrangement“) to liberate the value of certain technology assets and its True Focus assets.
