“Our new tuna meatballs make it even easier to incorporate fish – a fantastic natural source of protein – into our diets, and John West Tuna Bowls and John West Tuna Bites for Kids provide a quick, easy meal that you can feel good about.”
Both ranges will be available in the UK from the end of August. John West Tuna Bowls will have a suggested retail price of £2.49, while John West Tuna Bites for Kids will have a suggested retail price of £1.79.
