GWYNN’S ISLAND, VA. (March 29, 2023) – Mind Blown™ by The Plant Based Seafood Co. (“Mind Blown™”), the leading brand in plant-based seafood announces the launch of their new shelf-stable seafood product, Mind Blown™ Shelf-Stable Sea Scallops. The first-of-its-kind scallop made from plants and sits on a pantry shelf is charting the way forward with innovation in plant-based seafood. The shelf-stable product is the newest addition to the company’s award-winning plant-based frozen seafood portfolio.
Mind Blown™ first debuted the shelf-stable sea scallops with a one-hour sneak peek cooking demonstration by Top Chef celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn at Plant Based World Expo 2022 in New York City with the response far exceeding the brand’s expectations. In February 2023 the Mind Blown™ team shared the Shelf Stable Sea Scallops globally on the culinary stage at Gulfood, the world’s largest Food & Beverage Show held in Dubai.
“We’ve been thrilled with the responses world-wide from our ‘sneak peeks’ and are excited to launch them online for consumers to order directly to their door. “Unlike all of our other plant-based seafood products we can ship them out without the coolers and dry ice! This is a real game-changer!” said Monica Talbert, CEO & Co-Founder. “Our new Mind Blown™ Shelf Stable Sea Scallops can now be enjoyed by anyone who loves seafood and wants to enjoy a seafood experience anytime, anywhere.” said Talbert. “We’re proud to offer a shelf-stable, plant-based product that not only looks, smells, and tastes just like the real thing; but also supports relieving pressure from our ocean, emissions and reduces waste.”
Just like their other plant-based seafood products, Mind Blown™ Shelf-Stable Sea Scallops are made entirely from plants, but feature a long shelf life with no need for freezer or refrigeration. “There are so many benefits of these scallops being shelf stable- from the convenience to the saved energy and emissions. Chefs can save precious freezer/refrigerator space and the consumer can keep them on hand for an elevated meal, any day of the week. From camping to the Mars Space station, seafood meals will never be the same! But most importantly, they are absolutely delicious!” says Chief Innovation Officer, Shelly Van Cleve.
Mind Blown™ Shelf Stable Sea Scallops can be used in a wide range of recipes, just like real scallops from the sea. The award winning brand is excited to bring this innovative product to the market nationwide and will be available for sale on the company’s website starting March 29th, 2023, at www.eatmindblown.com.
