East meets West

Customers are always on the lookout for new flavours to excite their taste buds, and that is what the new John West Asian inspired tuna tempters are sure to do. Inspired from the streets of Asia, these new flavours, Malaysian Curry, Korean BBQ and Sweet Chilli, are a deliciously quick and easy snack or meal ingredient.

As consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the food they are eating, especially concerning health and sustainability, John West ticks all the right boxes. Not only are John West tuna products packed with nutrition, John West is committed to sustainable fishing practices and these tuna products have been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council- the world’s best standard in sustainability.

Remember it’s what John West rejects, that makes John West – The Best.
