Vegan tuna fish made from plant protein will launch in the UK in early 2019 – and become more widely available across the US.

The Loma Linda range of TUNO products, which is already available in the States, will see its distribution increased to include Walmart, Safeway, Sprouts, Delhaize, Wegmans, Costco, and Amazon.

Products include both cans and ‘on the go’ pouches in five flavors including Lemon Pepper, Sweet Chilli, TUNO Mayo, Sesame Ginger, and Spring Water. There are less than 90 calories per serving.

“Health and sustainability are critical components in a world where today’s shoppers are not only aware of the benefits of plant-based proteins, but also embracing them as part of a healthy lifestyle,” Eric Woods, Managing Director at Worldwide Food Associates, said in a statement sent to Plant Based News.

“As such, retailers are significantly increasing the space allocated to plant-based alternatives, as more brands enter the market.

“Plant-based protein alternatives are our future, and we’re committed to delivering healthy, sustainable foods to future generations, and we are already progressing early discussions with retailers. TUNO offers a first of its kind, innovative, tasty, healthy and convenient option which is set to transform the plant-based food category in the UK.”

TUNO has a UK predicted recommended retail price of £1.29-£1.49 per can or pouch.
