MCKINLEYVILLE, CALIF. – Wild Planet Foods is introducing ready-to-eat tuna salad bowls that contain a blend of wild skipjack tuna and organic, non-GMO vegetables, pasta and legumes.
The tuna featured in each bowl is 100% sustainably pole & line caught and the bowls come in 100% recyclable, plastic-free packaging. Varieties include tuna pasta salad, tuna white bean salad, and tuna, bean and corn salad.
The Wild Tuna Pasta Salad contains red peppers, tomatoes and green olives.
The Wild Tuna White Bean Salad features chickpeas, carrots, red peppers and green olives.
The Wild Tuna, Bean & Corn Salad includes sweetcorn, red peppers and carrots.
"After months of development, we are proud to share these new items with our consumers," said Bill Carvalho, president and founder of Wild Planet Foods. "They are perfect tuna salads. I founded Wild Planet with the utmost reverence for ocean life, and our ready-to-eat tuna salad bowls align with that principle, encouraging people to incorporate pole and line tuna into their diets with the hopes of moving the fishing industry toward more selective harvesting."
This month the new products are available online for a suggested retail price of $4.99 per 5.6-oz bowl. In May the products will be available at Whole Foods Market and rolled out to additional retailers later this year.
