SAN DIEGO--Genova® Seafood has made it even easier for Americans to answer the call to add more seafood to their diet. The San Diego premium seafood company revered for its superior-tasting tuna packed in pure olive oil has launched a new line of yellowfin and albacore tuna packed in Easy-Open cans.
Gourmet tuna aficionados can now find two of Genova’s most popular products packed in portable cans with pull-tab lids.
Earlier this year, the release of Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015-2020 urged Americans to eat seafood at least twice a week in place of other protein foods. The new report concludes that average seafood consumption is below recommendations for all U.S. age-sex groups.
According to Gautam Malla, senior brand manager of Genova Seafood, the new product line answers consumer demand for faster recipe preparation and portability. “Discerning foodies are seeking high-protein, convenient products that also deliver on taste. We’re thrilled to offer easy-open cans to allow time-crunched consumers to enjoy the decadent taste of Genova on-the-go.”
The product is available in most U.S. supermarkets, Clubs (Costco and BJs) and Walmart in 3- and 5-ounce individual cans, and 5- and 7-ounce quad packs.
To accompany the new packaging, Genova today launched Genova’s Easy Open Sweepstakes through November 26, 2016. Users who tag #GenovaSeafoodSweeps on social media have the chance to win a weekly giveaway Mediterranean-themed gift basket from Genova.
In honor of the new easy-open cans, Genova introduced a series of quick and easy recipes that showcase the rich taste of Genova:
- Deconstructed Tuna Caesar Salad — Toasted French baguette alongside plated romaine hearts topped with rich and flavorful Genova, egg, garlic and parmesan and chives is a new twist on traditional Caesar Salad.
