New York-based vegan seafood company Ocean Hugger Foods has announced that starting today, its award-winning Ahimi, a plant-based version of raw tuna, can now be found at 40 Whole Foods Market locations across ten states. Customers will be able to find Ahimi in two grab-and-go options at select Whole Foods Market sushi counters in an Ahimi California Roll and an Ahimi Sushi Combo.
“We’re thrilled to be able to bring Ahimi, our plant-based alternative to raw tuna, to more consumers across the United States,” said David Benzaquen, Co-Founder and CEO of Ocean Hugger Foods in a press release. “Ahimi provides consumers the natural, meaty texture of raw tuna without harming our oceans.”
“We know our shoppers come to Whole Foods Market to try new, innovative and trend-forward products, and Ahimi delivers on all three as the original plant-based alternative to raw tuna,” said Andy Sasser, global category manager at Whole Foods Market.“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with Ocean Hugger Foods to bring Ahimi to more than 20 additional in-store sushi counters this spring.”
