Ocean Hugger Foods partners with Aramark to distribute plant-based raw tuna alternative


In New York, Ocean Hugger Foods, the makers of Ahimi, the world’s first plant-based alternative to raw tuna, partnered with Aramark, a global leader in food, facilities and uniforms, to bring the breakthrough ingredient to corporate and higher education cafes.

“At Aramark, we’re continually looking for new and innovative ways to deliver culinary experiences that meet the demands of our guests and reflect current marketplace trends,” said Annette Gray, Lead Chef, Culinary & Innovation Aramark.

Created by Certified Master Chef James Corwell, Ahimi is vegan, non-GMO, and made with just five simple ingredients – tomatoes, filtered water, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sugar. The game-changing product will be served in a range of innovative poke bowls developed as part of a collaboration between the two companies.  Initially, the menus featuring Ahimi will be offered for a limited time at select corporate cafes and college campus dining halls, managed by Aramark.
