Tripacific Marine, based in Fiji, are patenting a smooth flakeless pressed tuna product, which will provide an alternative to flaky canned tuna.
The seafood manufacturing company has an EU-approved and HACCP-certified, state of the art factory, in which tuna fresh from the Pacific is combined with salt, sugar, starch and spices, and is packed in cylindrical or square plastic casing.
The product is cooked and ready to eat and is said to have no smell. It is available in retail packs for restaurants and the food service, as well as for consumers.
The product is awaiting its patent from New Zealand.
