A taste of the ocean, but there’s nothing fishy going on here.
Meticulously formulated over two years by a team that has spent decades working in food science, Current Foods has always gone one step further than making plant-based seafood – the company makes seafood…that just happens to be made from plants.
Their next-generation tuna and smoked salmon provide nutritious, plant-based seafood options without the environmental and ethical consequences.
Current Foods uses 100% plant-based ingredients including algae, bamboo, peas, and radish to provide consumers a taste of the ocean while staying true to its plant-powered roots.
The company’s first product, a raw tuna replacement (named one of 2021’s Best Inventions by Time Magazine) was their first step in their mission of bringing a sustainable alterative to raw seafood to market. The company’s plant-based tuna and smoked salmon are rich in protein, B12 and omega 3 and can be used in any recipes that call for sushi-grade fish.
Conventional tuna and salmon fishing have practically led to the collapse of ocean populations due to heavy overfishing. And while traditional raw tuna and salmon have many health benefits, large fish often contains high levels of environmental toxins and microplastics.
Current Foods’s differentiation lies in the taste and texture of the product, which closely mimics the mouthfeel of raw fish. This culinary experience, combined with a delicious taste, allows Current Foods to succeed in truly replacing tuna and salmon such as in poke bowls, sushi rolls and ceviche.
