It's warp speed ahead for Boldly Foods, an Australian company with operations in the United States as the US launch of its vegan seafood is an amazing success.
Their vegan seafood lineup includes a diverse selection of konjac-based** alternatives to traditional fish, such as salmon, tuna, crab-sticks, calamari steaks, calamari rings, jumbo prawns, shrimp bites, and whitefish.
Fresh from 'sample smooshing' US restaurateurs at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, Boldly's Founder, Sydney based, Allen Zelden says the food service launch in the US was nothing short of amazing.

'To say our formal Boldly launch was a triumphant success and a dream come true is an understatement. Whatever we dreamt of as a ‘perfect' reaction to our range of vegan seafood pales in comparison to the interest, enthusiasm and tremendous demand we received at the show,' says Allen Zelden.
With the Chicago launch exceeding expectations Boldly Foods is well on the way to unveiling a veritable 'grab & go' of vegan seafood for food service operators along the US West Coast.
