Ocean Hugger Foods offers healthy, delicious and sustainable plant-based alternatives to your favorite seafood dishes. Created by one of America's top chefs, Certified Master Chef James Corwell, the company’s breakout product is Ahimi, the World's First Plant-Based Alternative to Raw Tuna.
The idea for Ocean Hugger Foods® first started to take shape at the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo, where James Corwell saw two football-field sized warehouses full of tuna sold in one morning. Chef Corwell -- one of only 60 Certified Master Chefs in the U.S. -- saw the incredible volume of tuna that are sold every single day, and asked: “How can the oceans ever keep up?”
The answer is “they can’t.” According to a study published in the journal Nature, 90% of all large predatory fish (like tuna) are already gone, and the rate of fishing isn't slowing down.
So, Corwell started working on something that could make a difference to the world’s oceans. With it, our first product – Ahimi™, a plant-based alternative to raw tuna, for use in dishes including sashimi, nigiri, poke, tartare and ceviche – was born.
With a taste that even fish eaters will love, our products help chefs offer their diners fantastic and turnkey plant-based options.
In addition to Ahimi™, we will soon be releasing additional products to replace eel, salmon and more.
