Our Veganuary 2024 highlights
Why not try plant-based this January? To help you discover the very best in vegan seafood, our partners are launching tasty, seaweed-based TU-NAH specially for Veganuary. You'll find us in your favorite supermarkets and restaurants, and even on board Deutsche Bahn trains!
It's time to "Taste the TU-NAH"!
Baguettes available from Deutsche Bahn's on-board bistro. Also as a to-go option.
Fluffy dough, fruity tomato sauce, melty vegan cheese and TU-NAH come together on a new TU-NAH Pizza — a classic remade for Veganuary!

The tastiest tuna is made from seaweed
For the climate. And our oceans.
Seaweeds are a zero-input crop. They grow extremely fast and only require sunshine and seawater to grow — that means no farmland, pesticides, fertilizer or fresh water. Furthermore, they sequester CO2 and convert it into oxygen, providing other marine life with a nutrient-rich environment and a bountiful habitat! Speaking of life, no tuna fish are caught in the making of TU-NAH. Nor dolphins, turtles or other species which all too often end up in fishing nets as bycatch along with tuna. Instead, we allow them to continue swimming freely.
For coastal regions
Our seaweeds grow in the crystal-clear waters off of Europe's Irish and Norwegian coasts. Our seaweed farmers in Norway used to fish for salmon. Now, they put more seaweed in the ocean, rather than taking fish out of it. And that's a good thing for biodiversity, fish stocks and for us all, as healthier coastal regions help mitigate climate change.
For the food industry
We want to turn seaweed into an array of different, delicious foods that people love. Why? Because the more people who eat seaweed, the betta it is for our planet. In order to maximize our impact, we cooperate with other food manufacturers to reach a broader audience, scale fast and help our partners achieve their climate and sustainability targets.
For eating betta
Our population is growing and if we want to feed everyone sustainably, we need to find new solutions. Land space for farming is limited, yet our world is covered 70% by oceans that offer vast potential for cultivating future foods. Seaweeds are also healthy: They're rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals like iodine, calcium and iron, and have anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties. And, importantly, they are delicious! The seaweeds in TU-NAH taste just like the ocean. Put simply, we're helping everyone to eat betta!
For the future
Most of our operations take place behind the scenes: We conduct deep research into the visual, textural and taste properties of seaweeds, as well as new processing methods. Sustainability drives our decisions and in particular we take care to minimize distances, water use and waste. We source our European ingredients responsibly and use fava beans low in water consumption. Our seaweeds are also blanched using sea water. Next on our agenda ís improving our packaging and energy consumption for a delicious plant-based future that also contributes to fixing the climate.
Your satisfaction is our impact
134 tons of tuna fish saved
by leaving them in peace to swim in the oceans.
136 tons of bycatch avoided
because we don't need to conduct any fishing activities to make our products.
12 tons of seaweed used
in the products we've sold so far.
Cultivating seaweed protects our coastal regions, reduces maritime traffic in these areas and brings the nutrients in our oceans back into balance.
Only seawater is required to cultivate and process seaweed. This allows us to conserve precious fresh water.
Seaweed farms provide a bountiful habitat for marine life, thus boosting biodiversity in our oceans.
If we used just 2% of the oceans for seaweed cultivation, we'd double current land crop yields while avoiding damaging fishing practices.
The UN's Sustainable Development Goals
This is how we — with your help — contribute to the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Our Priority #1 is protecting our oceans and their fishy inhabitants.
We offer climate-friendly alternatives, as seaweeds sequester CO2.
Seaweed cultivation is more efficient than fishing or conventional land farming.
