US food company Starkist has announced the expansion of its range of Tuna Creations single-serve pouches with new variants inspired by Asian flavours.
The three new, lightly seasoned tuna flavours – bold spicy Korean style with gochujang, bold red curry with coconut, and ginger sesame – will be available in the shelf-stable seafood section in select US retailers.
Starkist said the range’s packaging features a tear-open and no-drain design, making it easy to enjoy the products from the pouch or added to a simple meal.
Andy Mecs, vice president of marketing and innovation at Starkist Co, said: “Starkist is constantly driving innovation when it comes to new flavour profiles. By introducing bold seasonings to our premium tuna, our consumers enjoy the health benefits of seafood with a kick of flavour.
“Our on-the-go pouches have become an everyday staple, and by adding exciting, internationally inspired new flavours, we’re providing consumers with a quick and easy way to amplify their meals.
“At Starkist, we’ve built on the convenience momentum by launching our web store, where consumers can combine their favourites like the Chicken Creations bold buffalo style flavour, with ones they’ve never tried before, like the Tuna Creations ginger sesame pouch, into one, personalised multi-pack.”
In total, Starkist has a portfolio of 23 flavours of Tuna, Chicken and Salmon Creations. The Chicken Creations line was launched last year, with four flavours available: chicken salad, buffalo style, zesty lemon pepper, and ginger soy.
