Additionally, the new Toona is available on Amazon. Additional retailers across the U.S. will continue to be added.The MSRP is $5.49/6 oz can.

We have developed this new Toona formula to mimic the shredded texture of real tuna, and we are excited to have a product that our community can get behind as we challenge the status quo of the seafood industry. The new Toona is low maintenance. It’s storable and can be kept in the pantry just like Tuna, for the times that you need it.
