Madrid, 20th February 2020. The Jealsa Group’s sustainable new range of Rianxeira canned tuna and shellfish, was distinguished as 2020 FLAVOUR OF THE YEAR. On this occasion, Rianxeira’s canned light tuna products received the quality seal 2020 Sustainable Flavour of the Year from a jury made up of consumers in a blind tasting session.
All tuna used in the recently launched Rianxeira new range of sustainable canned fish and shellfish, is MSC certified (Marine Stewardship Council, the world’s most demanding sustainable fishing standard) and/or individually pole & line caught.
Also, they all have the right touch of ecological oil or mineral water, maintaining all the juiciness and flavour of the products and avoiding the waste of oil, as each litre of oil discarded down the drain contaminates up to 1000 litres of water from rivers and seas, forming a coating that prevents correct oxygenation.
On the other hand, all materials used in the manufacture of cartonettes and cans of the whole range are 100% recyclable and have a clean label, with the list of ingredients as product name.
“To be distinguished by the consumers as one of the best sustainable alternatives is, for us, a recognition of great value of the efforts we put in elaborating a high quality and environment friendly product”, said Juan Carlos Cordeiro, director of the Rianxeira brand.
