Canned fish producer Karavela has unveiled a plant-based seafood line under the new brand Fish Peas.
The canned range is said to be the product of over a year of market research, investments of around €2.5 million and experimentation with more than 100 different recipes.
The Fish Peas line – which includes salads, spreads and flakes – is made using yellow pea protein, and comes in response to growing global demand for foods that support a sustainable lifestyle.
Karavela claims that yellow pea is one of the most sustainable plant proteins, based on carbon footprint estimations in cultivation, processing, drying and waste management.
“Currently, there is a lack of understanding about how plant-based seafood products should taste,” said Andris Bite, CEO of Karavela.
“We are planning to change that, combining our extensive experience as a canned fish producer with sustainable innovation in the realm of plant-based ingredients.
“With the launch of our vegan products, we plan to become trendsetters in the plant-based fish product market, leading the way for other brands that want to create new vegan products and tastes.”
