StarKist adds Asian flavors to Tuna Creations line
Pittsburgh, PENNSYLVANIA — StarKist Co. has added additional flavors to its line of Tuna Creations® single serve pouches: Tuna Creations® BOLD Spicy Korean Style with Gochujang; Tuna Creations® BOLD Red Curry with Coconut, and Tuna Creations® Ginger Sesame. This latest innovation allows tuna lovers to expand their horizons with adventurous new flavors, which are now available on the company's recently launched web store, buy.starkist.com. The new site allows consumers to easily mix and match their favorite flavors for customized multi-packs.
"StarKist is constantly driving innovation when it comes to new flavor profiles. By introducing bold seasonings to our premium tuna, our consumers enjoy the health benefits of seafood with a kick of flavor," said Andy Mecs, Vice President of Marketing & Innovation, StarKist Co. "Our on-the-go pouches have become an everyday staple, and by adding exciting, internationally inspired new flavors, 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 favorites like the Chicken Creations™ BOLD Buffalo Style flavor, with ones they've never tried before, like the Tuna Creations® Ginger Sesame pouch, into one, personalized multi-pack."
According to Mecs, all StarKist pouches feature a convenient, tear-open and no-drain design, making it easy to enjoy premium, wild caught tuna straight from the pouch or in a simple meal, while giving you the protein you need to stay energized.
The three new, lightly seasoned premium tuna flavors will be available in the shelf-stable seafood section in select retailers. In the meantime, you can find them on StarKist's new online store. Visit buy.starkist.com to find your flavor.
