Food Spotlight: Wild Planet Launches First Truly Ready-To-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls


Leader in Sustainable Seafood Pairs High-Quality Tuna with Vegetables, Pasta & Legumes for Delicious, Convenient Meals

Wild Planet, the first large-scale sustainably focused canned seafood company in the country, announced today the launch of its new line of Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls.

The new Wild Planet Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls require no heating or prep work of any kind. Wild Planet's commitment to responsibly sourced seafood means the wild skipjack tuna featured in each Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowl is 100% sustainably pole & line caught – no nets are ever used. Wild Planet's commitment to the ocean environment also means that these Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls come in 100% recyclable, plastic-free packaging.


The Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls come in 3 recipes:

  • Wild Tuna Pasta Salad with organic red peppers, tomatoes and green olives
  • Wild Tuna White Bean Salad with organic chickpeas, carrots, red peppers and green olives
  • Wild Tuna, Bean & Corn Salad with organic sweetcorn, red peppers and carrots


"After months of development, we are proud to share these new items with our consumers. They are perfect tuna salads. These Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls are a great-tasting, nutritious option that give our consumers the peace of mind knowing each salad is made from responsibly sourced ingredients, including 100% pole & line caught tuna, organic vegetables, pasta and beans. It doesn't get better than that!" said Bill Carvalho, President and Founder of Wild Planet Foods. "I founded Wild Planet with the utmost reverence for ocean life, and our Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls align with that principle, encouraging people to incorporate pole & line tuna into their diets with the hopes of moving the fishing industry toward more selective harvesting."

Wild Planet Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls are available for purchase online at www.wildplanetfoods.com and on Amazon for an SRP of $4.99 per bowl. In May, these new items will be available in Whole Foods Markets nationwide followed by a rollout in additional natural and conventional grocers.

In addition to the new Ready-to-Eat Tuna Salad Bowls, Wild Planet offers a wide array of wild tuna products as well as seafood choices to further encourage eating lower on the food chain, including sardines, mackerel and anchovies.

‘Anti-Loneliness’ Ramen Bowl Holds Phones

Since eating ramen alone is apparently a very traumatic experience that affects people worldwide, here is an "anti-loneliness bowl" designed specifically to keep you entertained while eating. According to Gizmodo, the bowl is the brainchild of the design team over at MisoSoupDesign. It features a smartphone dock on the edge of the bowl to make for easy web browsing or chatting and "also doubles as a passive amplifier for your phone's speaker when it's empty."

For now, the bowls are just prototypes that seem to come in black, white and red, but MisoSoupDesign has announced on its Facebook page that the company is "currently accepting limited number of pre-order now. The available date will be around April to May." So anyone who gets really depressed when eating ramen should consider sending an email for pre-order.
