To achieve this, we strive to produce products that deliver on flavor, value, and convenience – ensuring you don’t have to make a trade-off between your health, wallet, or the planet.”

Loma Linda is confident the relaunch will facilitate more opportunities in the market and attract more tuna lovers to switch to plant-based with the new and improved product, as well as appeal to vegans and vegetarians.
The team is also working on several exciting new plant-based concepts to develop their range and expand their alternatives further.
Mike Easterbrook, Atlantic Natural Food’s European Agent said: “We are eager to present our brand relaunch, which offers a new and improved recipe and a fifth flavour of TUNOTM to our growing customer base.
“We’ve invested significantly to find the right balance of flakiness and texture to provide a plant-based experience closer to that of tuna, including seaweed and DHA Algal Oil. This combination provides a fresh-from-the-sea fish flavour which we know is important to our customers.
“At Loma Linda, we are committed to developing more new products in this area, being a key innovator for ambient plant-based products in the marketplace. Our future plans will cover not just fish alternatives, but new meat alternatives too.”
