Nick Diener, a sales representative for Finless Foods, said that winter melon is the main ingredient and creates the perfect taste and texture of Ahi tuna.

The product is packaged for in-store deli and foodservice use in 1-pound bags. It has a neutral tuna flavor profile so chefs can take it and make it their own in a variety of recipes from sushi to poke bowls, salads and so much more.
