On April 17 and 18, speakers and audience members in this year’s TED Conference in Canada will be offered vegan sushi rolls made with quinoa and 100% plant-based tuna.
For the collaboration, Top Tier Foods provided Sushi Quinoa that is developed in place of sushi rice so people with dietary and religious restrictions can enjoy Japanese food without compromising taste and beliefs.
Ocean Hugger Foods, on the other hand, offered ahimi — vegan ahi tuna made from tomatoes.
“One of the great things about Sushi Quinoa is that it allows the chef to create unique vegan and vegetarian options using quinoa as the high-protein vehicle,” Blair Bullus, President of Top Tier Foods, told online media outlet Straight.
“[Ahimi], this wildly popular product, along with Sushi Quinoa create an option for people seeking a meatless alternative that tastes just like an ahi tuna roll with a similar nutritional profile but without fish or rice.”
The 2019 TED Conference will focus on the theme “Bigger Than Us” and will feature more than 70 speakers and more than 1,000 attendees.
