Up Beet
Market aims to streamline the shopping process for those seeking
plant-based groceries and specialty products – eliminating the need for trips
to multiple stores.

day you want to pop in, grab a few things for a meal and go home.

double all of your trips just trying to hunt down the vegan version.”
