I was invited to a refreshing, feel good product launch. A premium tuna chunks brand is about to make their presence felt in the competitive tuna market. One of their goals is to provide an avenue for moms and kids, and the whole family a holistically better option when it comes to preparing meals at home using their tuna chuncks.
Held at the Blue Leaf Pavilion at McKinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio, Gold Seas Tuna Chunks gets a full-on grand media launch. The event was rather very well-attended by their esteemed team, business partners, media, and bloggers.
As a new venture of General Nutrifoods Philippines, Inc. Gold Seas Tuna Chunks aims to provide wholesome, premium and packed Yellowfin tuna goodness to Filipinos.
The event was very well set up starting with decorated boards surrounding the seating area for tidbits of information. It was a sit down lunch with sumptuous food handled K by Cunanan, complete with cooking demos and highlighted by a big reveal on who their brand endorsers are. This was emceed by lovely couple, Paolo Abrera and Suzi Entreat-Abrera, one of the most sought after pair on events hosting.
A great touch on the buffet set up: before the food prepared was a whole spread of the six variants of Gold Seas Tuna Chunks along with bowls of pasta, salad greens and colorful vegetables. This allowed the attendees to sample and experience for themselves Gold Seas Tuna via a create your own ensemble. It was definitely a preview of the right food pairings for everyday healthy meal ideas. I loaded my plate with each of the flavors to see for myself.
The six variants are Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil, Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil with Chili, Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Springwater, and for the gourmet variants they have Tuna Chunks with Herb and Garlic, Tuna Chunks in Lemon and Pepper, and Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry.
The Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Olive Oil is unarguably a healthy option. There’s a good balance between the taste of the Tuna and its olive oil. Its aim it to be a staple for healthy meals. The Chili variety, on the other hand has quite an unanticipated kick of spiciness, since Gold Seas uses real Bird’s Eye Chili.
The Yellowfin Tuna Chunks in Springwater is rather a very light and refreshing variant. And an amazing surprise to have no trace of that unpleasant seafood and tuna aftertaste and smell.
The Tuna Chunks with Herb and Garlic is a strong flavoured variant, with all the herb and garlic marinating very well in the can. Almost Italian in taste, this could go on its own or eaten with some light carbs to keep the tasty gourmet flavor.
The Tuna Chunks in Lemon and Pepper has the nice zing and tang and made more interesting with the kick of pepper and balance of citrusy taste.
And the Tuna Chunks in Mild Indian Curry is the tastiest as the curry is really immersed. It’s wonderfully delicious to be on its own, especially when you’re up for a twist on the usual tuna.
What I did notice in its meat as compared to others is its generous amount of real tuna chunks. They’re not crushed meat but rather slices of the tuna itself, without the stink of the sea and that tuna aftertaste.
As we were informed, Gold Seas responsibly catches Yellowfin Tuna in the South Pacific Ocean. Premium tuna meat conveniently packed in a lithographic can, with the easy open lid placed at the bottom to keep dirt and bacteria from accumulating, unlike when the lid is placed on top.
Two dishes, which featured the Gold Seas Tuna Chunks were delightfully demonstrated to us by the renowned Chef Rosebud Benitez with the help of volunteers from the audience as well as the hosts. And Japanese-certified bento maker Kat Maderazo taught participants how to make kid-friendly bento lunches! Another surprise that swooped the audience was the reveal of the endorsers, which were the fairly new celebrity parents, Toni Gonzaga and Paul Soriano. Lovely to have them there as the brand saw them fit to represent it many aspects.
Find this fresh, new catch at all leading supermarkets and select convenience stores. See for yourself the quality premium tuna chunks, for a fitting affordable price.
