Canned plant-based tuna and salmon launched
OmniFoods has launched its new OmniSeafood range, which includes plant-based ‘tuna’ and ‘salmon’ in cans.
The company achieved the worldwide success thanks to its OmniPork series, including OmniPork Mince, OmniPork Strip and OmniPork Luncheon, which are now available at over 40,000 points of sale.
Created with a proprietary blend of plant-based protein from non-GMO soy, pea and rice, the new range consists of Omni Classic Fillet, Omni Golden Fillet, and Omni Ocean Burger, in original, battered or breaded fish burger varieties, along with OmniTuna and the forthcoming OmniSalmon – both of which are in tins.
OmniTuna is the first ambient product of OmniFoods, which is to be followed by OmniSalmon. The range contains omega-3 ALA derived from non-GMO expeller-pressed canola oil, all products are certified vegan and Buddhist-friendly, and are free from trans-fat and cholesterol, hormones, artificial colours, MSGs, added antibiotics or preservatives.
David Yeung, founder and CEO of Green Monday Group and OmniFoods, said, “We cannot tackle climate change without taking care of the ocean. Overfishing and bottom trawling are the most destructive actions that devastate our marine ecosystems.
“That explains why since the breakthrough launch of OmniPork in 2018, we started setting our focus on seafood. After years of R&D and dedication, we are thrilled to officially unveil this revolutionary OmniSeafood series on this special occasion of World Oceans Day.
“This breakthrough guarantees not only to wow our taste buds, but also to awaken our consciousness towards the ocean and the planet. With today’s milestone launch of OmniSeafood, we believe it is a big leap forward to a real sea change.”
