Nestlé adds a plant-based seafood alternative product to its line-up
Nestlé has launched a plant-based tuna alternative that can be used in a wide range of dishes such as salads, sandwiches and pizzas. It has the flaky texture and rich flavor that makes tuna a favorite in many meals.
The product will be first launched under the Garden Gourmet brand in Switzerland. The launch will feature both the chilled product, which is available in a glass jar, as well as plant-based tuna sandwiches in select stores.
Made from a combination of only six plant-based ingredients, it is rich in pea protein, contains all the essential amino acids and is free of artificial colouring or preservatives.
Nestlé developed the tuna alternative within 9 months. The company already offers a variety of plant-based products, including alternatives to burgers, mince, meatballs, sausages, cold cuts, chicken nuggets, and chicken fillets.
