Plant-based seafood brand Seabloom is launching a tuna-fish alternative into retail.
Seabloom ‘Tuna-Free’ Flakes, which offer similar nutritional benefits to tinned tuna, come in two flavour varieties: Olive Oil ‘Tuna-Free’ Flakes and Lemon ‘Tuna-Free’ Flakes.
Made using organic Scottish seaweed, alongside pea protein and flaxseed oil, the fish-free offerings are suitable for vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and flexitarians.
“On a trip to Cape of Good Hope in South Africa in 2018, I saw whales breaching out of the sea alongside industrial fishing vessels. Despite working in the seafood industry for over 18 years, it didn’t’ feel right and I knew I had to do something about it,” said Greta Desforges-Hodgson, founder of Seabloom.
Seabloom’s flakes range is frozen and can be defrosted at room temperature in three hours or six hours in the fridge. Sold in recyclable packaging (minus a film lid), the range is currently available in the frozen section of Ocado.
Seabloom Olive ‘Tuna-Free’ Flakes have an RRP of £3.30 and Seabloom Lemon ‘Tuna-Free’ Flakes have an RRP of £3.65.
