In anticipation of a lack of marine resources that could result in a global food crisis, a major Japanese food firm has created plant-based seafood alternatives. It took NH Foods, often known as Nippon Ham, a year to create fish fries and popcorn shrimp using soybeans and other plant-based ingredients.
It meticulously replicated their delicate texture and added a fishy flavour using seaweed extracts. It intends to launch the food sales in March. Following the successful development of hams and sausages utilising plant-based meat alternatives, the company expanded into alternative seafood.
According to a UN Food and Agriculture Organization assessment, between 1950 and 2019, the annual seafood intake per person in China and Indonesia increased by nearly eight and four times, respectively.
Rising demand for marine resources, which are already in decline and may soon run out, is a result of population increase and economic development in emerging economies.
The goal of the company, according to Maeda Fumio, General Manager of NH Foods’ Processed Foods Business Division, is to increase the options for protein and provide a variety of ingredients and pre-cooked foods.
