Bumble Bee Introduces Bold New Flavors and Premium Protein Snacks

The leading seafood brand expands its product line with six new
flavors providing convenient meal solutions to help Americans eat more
seafood

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bumble
Bee Seafoods
, North America’s premium seafood company, has
introduced several new flavors to its Prime Fillet® line, Seasoned Tuna
Pouches, and Snack on the Run! kits. New flavor varieties provide
consumers with delicious ways to eat more seafood following the FDA’s
recently announced seafood
advice
for pregnant and nursing women, and families.


The advice encourages moms and moms-to-be to eat two to three servings
of fish per week from the “best choices” list. Bumble Bee makes it even
easier for families to get their recommended servings with bold new
flavors of high-quality, premium tuna that can be enjoyed at home or on
the go.

“Consumers are looking for nutritious, affordable meal solutions to fill
their pantries,” said Dave Melbourne, Bumble Bee senior vice president,
consumer marketing and corporate social responsibility. “Bumble Bee’s
new flavor varieties offer simple, delicious ways to incorporate more
seafood into you and your family’s diet.”

While fish can sometimes be intimidating to prepare, canned and pouched
seafood is immediately ready to be added to any meal. As a leader in
health and wellness, Bumble Bee offers a wide variety of high-quality,
affordable shelf-stable seafood products, giving consumers even more
ways to get their recommended servings of fish each week. New flavor
additions include:

    two new flavor varieties to its line of premium-grade albacore,
    including Ginger,

    & Olive Oil

    oil you can serve over pasta or atop a baby green salad.
  • Bumble Bee® Seasoned Tuna Pouches with Spoon: Bumble Bee’s
    tasty seasoned tuna pouches now conveniently include a spoon for

    and savory tuna, and Sriracha,
