Else Nutrition's shares soared Monday after the company unveiled plans for a collaboration with Danone that will initially see its plant-based, soy-free products added to the dairy giant's portfolio.

In morning trading, the shares were 35% higher at C$0.44, narrowing their decline so far this year to 20%.

Else, which has been pushing to get its products on store shelves in North America and elsewhere, said that following due diligence by Danone the companies signed a letter of intent for a staged collaboration. They expect to sign a definitive deal by the end of March.

Initially, Else's products will be manufactured, marketed and commercialized by the European company. The companies plan to negotiate opportunities beyond product commercialization.
