Bumble Bee adds to gourmet-style Prime Fillet line

SAN DIEGO — Bumble Bee Foods has introduced three new additions to its gourmet-style Prime Fillet line.

The new Prime Fillet gourmet flavors are available in three varieties: chipotle and olive oil, sundried tomatoes and olive oil, and jalapenos and olive oil. Each of the gourmet flavors contains albacore tuna in olive oil with chopped chipotles, sundried tomatoes or jalapenos and carefully paired seasonings.

According to Bumble Bee chief executive officer Christopher Lischewski, Bumble Bee was encouraged by the high demand for its premium albacore products in oil, including the brand's popular Prime Fillet Tonno.

"Premium tuna in olive oil has been popular among the food elite for years. The new seasoned varieties offered by our gourmet flavors bring inspiration from around the globe to help create delicious recipes for any meal occasion," Lischewski said. "All three gourmet flavors products combine exotic flavors with a kick of taste that can't be found anywhere else on the market."

Bumble Bee Prime Fillet gourmet flavors are now available in supermarkets nationwide. Suggested retail price is $2.49 per 5-oz. can.
