Packaged Food Plant-Based What's New

First Taste: OmniFoods’ Plant-Based Fish Fillets

The recent Natural Products Expo West show in Anaheim, California was brimming with innovation and sustainable creativity in the food space. Exciting products were everywhere and one that particularly stood out was what OmniFoods had to offer.

For those not familiar, OmniFoods introduced plant-based pork innovation with products like ground pork, pulled pork, and SPAM-style luncheon meat, which we covered last year. The latest from them, however, proved to be a jaw-dropper.

At Expo West, I had a chance to get an inside scoop on OmniFoods’ new Golden Fillets, which are plant-based battered fish-style fillets. My reaction in the video clip above conveys my thoughts on the product perfectly. Not only did the Golden Fillets capture the flaky texture and taste of actual fish fillets, I was in disbelief that they were 100 percent plant-based. The sorcery here is strong, friends.

If you’re on the hook and as intrigued as I am, OmniFoods is aiming for a summer 2022 launch of the Golden Fillets, so stay tuned for further updates.

Most plant-based meat options at the grocery store mimic beef or chicken, but OmniPork, a 100% plant-based product from OmniFoods, looks to answer the call for pork substitutes. After debuting in the US earlier this year with their take on plant-based SPAM, OmniPork’s full lineup of offerings will now be available at Sprouts and Whole Foods locations.

The OmniPork series’ popularity thus far is mostly due to its tender and juicy texture, as well as varieties which can be seasoned, steamed, pan or deep-fried, stuffed, or crumbled. Its proprietary blend is made up of shiitake mushrooms, peas, non-GMO soy, and rice.

OmniPork’s lineup will include OmniPork Ground, OmniPork Strips, and OmniPork Luncheon which can be purchased at all 371 Sprouts Farmers Market stores across 23 States, while OmniPork Ground and OmniPork Strips will be available at almost 200 Whole Foods Market stores across 16 States.
