Genova® Seafood Introduces Impossible-to-Resist Tuna in Easy-Open Cans

Gourmet seafood company famous for its tuna in olive oil launches
pull-tab lids for greater ease and convenience

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#GenovaSeafoodGenova®
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

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

through November 26, 2016. Users who tag
