What is happening with Canadian Soylent?


#32

Nothing has changed significantly while we’ve been dealing with CIFA. They pulled us from the market and we have since been working on assessing what we’d need to do to get back in.

#33

So assessing but not in a reformulating phase yet?


#34

Some of that work happens in parallel. Will report back when we have any concrete news to share.

No offense John, but do you know how incredibly frustrating the situation is after years of using the product? If the company is hard at work trying to rectify the problem I understand that and it is appreciated but a person would think that actual updates on where things are would be taking place by now.
I can’t help but wonder if Canada was an “entry into market” only and now that Soylent is sold in so many places in the United States it doesn’t matter to the company if it’s sold in Canada or not. I hope this is
way off base and that a solution is actually coming.

I truly wish I had more that I could share with you and the community but at this time, all we can say is that we are working on it. I know this is frustrating, but we are just unable to comment further on the specific inner workings of this project. I hope you will understand that we hear you and we want to be back in Canada as soon as we can.

Thank you John. … (Post must be at least 20 characters)

I’m assuming still no joy? I’m running really low on my stock pile. Went to log in on the website and it no longer says ‘notice to Canadian users’, but I’m assuming if I follow through on a purchase it won’t work? Also, if I order from Canada with a Canadian credit card, and ship to a US address —will that work? Or will the site explode if I try?


#39

I’m pretty sure you should be able to do this.


#40

I had to create a new account and use a different email address but I was able to use a canadian cc and order it to a shipping depot in the U.S.


#41

How expensive is the secondary shipping from the US depot into Canada? Any type of import fees?


#42

I live on the border so I just drive over and pick it up, depot charges $5 per package. Not sure how much reshippers charge.


#43

It’s not cheap due to the volume and weight of the product. As for the fees, other meal replacement companies are charged an import fee, but it depends whether your product gets stopped in customs or not (~15% do).

I would love to give you numbers, but I don’t really know. I think it will be around 50% (on top) of the order at least.

Hi John,
I thought I had seen somewhere that Walmart USA sells Soylent. If that’s correct do you think there could be a possibility of Walmart in Canada also selling Soylent when available again?
Thanks,


#45

It is true that Walmart carries Soylent in the US. While there are no specific plans in place, this could be a possibility in Canada as well upon availability.


#46

It can’t be that high above CIFA standards, they should just make the changes and sell that product to everyone.


#47

Anyone else worried now there will be a new wall called for and that da mooses and da beavers will paying for it? (it’s too much caffeine Sunday here) :us::canada::deer::brick::pizza::hamburger::fries::coffee:


#48

Well, I’ve received one too many ads for a product I want but can’t have, and unsubscribed today. Someone from Soylent is encouraged to contact me for sales if it ever returns to Canada.


#49

Bump…bumpity…bump…


#50

No one hold your breath, it’s highly likely that we’ll never see Soylent return here.

Supposedly Huel has been made in Canada all along, distributed worldwide and not allowed to be sold here either. :canada: :fire: :us:


#51

Anyone else out there now hearing that Huel is about to be for sale here again???
