Bumble Bee Foods Completes First Phase of Sodium Reduction in Products

April 27, 2010
May 2010 Release of Bumble Bee Albacore with 44 Percent Less Sodium

Bumble Bee Foods has announced completion of significant sodium reductions across its line of canned albacore and light meat tuna products. Further sodium reducing initiatives are in the works for the remaining products in the company’s portfolio. Following an almost two-year process, supermarkets will begin receiving the Bumble Bee albacore and light meat tuna with reduced sodium levels beginning May 2010.

According to company president and CEO Chris Lischewski, Bumble Bee albacore products will now contain 140mg of sodium or less per serving—a reduction of 44 percent from average sodium levels of 250mg in 2008. Light meat tuna by the brand has been reduced to 180mg per serving.

Early this year, Bumble Bee released Prime Fillet Very Low Sodium Solid White Albacore in Water. The new Prime Fillet product is designed for consumers on sodium-restricted diets and contains only 35mg of sodium per serving.
