Kraft Heinz Foodservice is offering two new brands of high quality, traceable tuna products—Ocean Naturals and Choice Landing—to its foodservice customers through a collaboration with The Tuna Store.

As part of the Tri Marine Group of Companies, The Tuna Store is able to control every link in the supply chain, providing quality, sustainability and traceability from fish to finished good.

Customers can trace these brands via where a simple code from the package allows you to trace the catch vessel, Captain, catch method, catch area and species of fish.

“Sustainable and socially responsible seafood is an industry priority driven by consumers’ continued desire for food supply chain transparency,” says Boyd Tubbs, associate director of marketing at Kraft Heinz.  “We are excited by this opportunity to work with The Tuna Store and continue our commitment to deliver high quality, trusted brands.”

The Tuna Store’s Ocean Naturals Albacore products have met strict standards for responsibly caught sustainable fishing practices, and are certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Ocean Naturals Skipjack products are also MSC certified and FAD free, or caught without the use of fish aggregating devices which reduces impacts on the marine ecosystem.  The line is species-specific in a premium pack with minimal flake to maintain loin integrity.  The Ocean Naturals brand contains no additives or fillers, just tuna, water, and salt to provide a simple, pure flavor. Both the Albacore and Skipjack products are available in 66.5-ounce cans and 43 ounce easy-open pouches.

Choice Landing, a premium line of wild caught tuna processed only from round fish, delivers a higher quality, Kosher Certified pack with better texture and outstanding taste. Fully traceable, dolphin safe, and packed in a non-soy vegetable broth, Choice Landing is available for foodservice in 66.5 ounce cans and 43 ounce pouches.

A perfect pairing to Kraft Mayonnaise, Ocean Naturals and Choice Landing tuna is currently available through Kraft Heinz Foodservice Distribution Channels.
