It has also been introduced in Green Common exclusively, pleasing taste buds with creative and delicious dishes. The much-anticipated retail pack of OmniSeafood will be launching in stages.

It is not only a versatile plant-based ingredient for a wide range of dishes, but also a big step to protect our precious ocean.
Heavy metals and micro-plastics are major sources of ocean pollution, causing hazardous effect on the marine ecosystem. Tuna resides in the deep ocean, is often polluted by heavy metals and mercury, which adversely affects pregnant women and children growth, arousing wide concern for the safety of seafood consumption.
Made from a unique blend of non-GMO soy, OmniTuna does not compromise on taste and texture. As a safe, mercury-free and healthy alternative, this plant-based tuna is just as convenient as traditional canned tuna. An ambient product that you can stock on your shelves, OmniTuna is ready as soon as you open the can. Soaked in canola oil and algae oil, OmniTuna provides omega-3s commonly found in deep sea fish (450mg of omega-3 ALA and 120mg of omega-3 DHA per 100g), with a polyunsaturated fat content comparable to canned tuna*. OmniTuna is also high in protein, a source of fiber, low in saturated fat, zero cholesterol, Buddhist-friendly, and free from artificial colourings, added hormones, antibiotics, and preservatives, making it a sustainable, nutritious and palatable tuna substitute.
OmniTuna’s slight briny taste makes it perfect with sandwiches, salad, sushi and toast. Cook it with pasta, risotto and pies for a taste fresh out of the sea.
