December, 2017 – Annasea Foods Group introduces seven poke flavor varieties
Annasea Foods, a family-owned and managed company, is excited to announce our retail-ready Simply Perfect Poke™ Kits in seven authentic flavor varieties. With ingredients sourced from Hawaii, our do-it-yourself kits are as simple as “thaw, mix, and serve.” There are seven different delicious and satiating flavors: Shoyu Ahi Poke, Wasabi Ahi Poke, Spicy Ahi Poke, Limu Ahi Poke, Albacore Tuna Poke, Sriracha Salmon Poke, and Garlic Shrimp Poke.
Simply Perfect Poke™ Kits offer an easy and healthy solution for a delicious meal or appealing appetizer for entertaining. Poke is a versatile dish that can be combined with a variety of fresh, healthy ingredients to make any meal exciting. Each 12 oz. Simply Perfect Poke™ Kits comes packed 24 to a case with a suggested retail price (SRP) of $8.95, available in the seafood case at large national and local grocery chains.
After establishing a strong foothold in Hawaii, Annasea Foods was ready to meet the swelling demand for fresh easy to prepare seafood meals to the US mainland with Hawaiian poke. Our poke is said to have jump-started the massive trend, popular with health enthusiasts, millennials, and seafood lovers alike. “This retail line took 9 months of development to source high-quality ingredients and to ensure food safety and quality were preserved,” said Alex Tran, President of Annasea Foods. “We really wanted to capture the authenticity that is lost in a lot of new recipes by bringing in ingredients from Hawaii and Japan specifically tailored to our product.”
Annasea poke swiftly sold out in July on the Amazon Treasure Truck and has been available at Costco Wholesale since 2010 as a ready-to-eat product. “Consumers have been requesting a way to take our product into the home for years, it was only a natural extension of our product line to offer a take-home DIY kit,” said Annasea Foods Marketing Coordinator, Jacob Berry.
