Vegan Tuna Launches at 1,100 Walmart Stores Nationwide
Fish-free tuna alternative TUNO—under Atlantic Natural Foods’ (ANF) Linda Loma line of plant-based products—recently launched at 1,100 Walmart stores across the United States. The soy-based seafood alternative is available in 5-ounce cans in flavors such as Spring Water with Sea Salt, Lemon Pepper, and Spicy Sriracha, and 3-ounce, single-serving pouches in Lemon Pepper, Thai Sweet Chili, and Sesame Ginger. While TUNO launched last year, the company’s recent deal with Walmart now puts its distribution at 10,000 stores across North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, and 17 other countries. ANF also produces ready-to-eat vegan meals such as Thai Green Curry with Chick’n and Rice, Southwest Chunky Stew with Rice, and a Chipotle Bowl with Black Beans. “As we continue our journey in food development, we are pleased with the enthusiastic consumer reception of our ready-to-eat meals, and we’re exceptionally bullish on our newest creation, Tuno,” ANF founder and chairman J. Douglas Hines, said. ANF also recently hired new executives to handle its rapid growth, including the launch of several new plant-based products in 2020.
