Bumble Bee Launches New Prime Fillet Tonno In Olive Oil

Bumble Bee Foods(R), America’s leading premium tuna brand, is bringing elegant convenience to dinner tables across the country. Following the success of its premium Prime Fillet(R) albacore and salmon products, Bumble Bee has announced the national launch of Prime Fillet Tonno in Olive Oil. The new gourmet-style canned tuna is the first of Bumble Bee’s Prime Fillet products to be packed in olive oil--the traditional and preferred style in Europe.

Each individual five-ounce can of Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Tonno contains two servings of Italian-style gourmet yellowfin tuna packed in olive oil.

“In developing this delicious new product, we wanted to provide a convenient dinner solution that is of the highest quality, has superior taste, and can be a part of a nutritious meal,” said Bumble Bee Chief Executive Officer Christopher Lischewski. “Premium tuna packed in olive oil has been popular among the food elite for years but now with Prime Fillet Tonno this gourmet-quality product is more widely available at a reasonable price.”

He added, “Families have trusted Bumble Bee for more than 100 years to provide healthy, affordable and delicious food options. As consumers look to shrink their grocery bills without sacrificing quality we believe that Bumble Bee is the right partner for consumers looking for affordable, nutritious products that can be easily incorporated into a variety of recipes and enhance healthful family meals.”

Bumble Bee Prime Fillet Tonno is rich in protein, providing many of the same health benefits as fresh fish. Tuna is a significant source of healthful omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have been linked to improved heart health, reduced hypertension, aid in fighting autoimmune diseases, and improved mental health. Further, the olive oil Prime Fillet Tonno is packed in contains monounsaturated fat which has been linked to lower risks of bad cholesterol and heart disease.

Prime Fillet Tonno is now available at select stores nationwide. Suggested retail price is $1.99 per five-ounce can.

Dine on Prime Fillet Tonno straight from the can, in salads, or in delicious Mediterranean and Italian-inspired recipes such as the following pasta dish.
