Revo Food’s Plant-Based Salmon Fillet Presented at Rooftop Launch

Latest News

Revo Foods, the Austrian makers of plant-based seafood products, has managed to create something many vegans could only previously dream about. And only last week, Revo Foods presented it, their plant-based salmon fillet, at a public tasting event at Rooftop Bar, Zoku, in Vienna.  The 100% plant-based salmon fillet was prepared by a Michelin star chef, Siegfried Kröpfl, and tested by ten very lucky individuals.

Revo Foods has already filed two patents on new technologies to produce plant-based fish products with their plant-based salmon fillets set to be available in stores from early 2023. 

Plant-Based Seafood From Vienna

This latest innovation is a first of its kind and is considered a total game-changer for many plant-based followers. It is classed as a “whole cut” because the fillet resembles the structure and texture of a salmon fillet. It can be prepared in a similar manner; fried, baked, or steamed, just as you would with fish.

This “Generation 2.0” company sees its products as a step up from the first generation of plant-based alternatives. Defining structure and elevating the eating experience of the vegan food market as a whole. 

And as Robin Simsa, Revo Food CEO commented: “It’s all about structure and creating the perfect bite.” 

Industrial Fishing Means Over Fishing

As we know, the fishing industry has created a massive problem that’s been growing for many years. Industrial fishing companies are destroying the marine ecosystem equaling a loss of the ocean’s natural biodiversity. Many people find this a concerning and deeply disturbing issue that needs immediate action. However, finding a sustainable and more environmentally conscious answer to eating fish can be found in products such as Revo Food’s plant-based salmon.

So what did some of the testers think?

Of the plant-based salmon fillet, one guest said: “The structure is almost “too perfect”, are you sure this is vegan?”

Thankfully, yes it is. The base of the fillet is made from various plant-protein sources, such as pea proteins. Alongside this are algae extracts and plant oils. The fillet has a high protein and omega-3 fatty acid content – similar, in fact, to wild-caught salmon.

Revo Food Productions

Alongside the plant-based salmon fillet, Revo Foods already has its first product, a smoked salmon alternative, available in 16 European countries, including supermarkets in Austria and Germany. Recently, the startup received a grant of €2.2m from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) to help further advance its 3D printing technology.

We can’t wait to see what comes next from Revo Foods!

Thankfully, there has been a lot of development in the plant-based fish movement. Only recently did we bring news of Better Nature being awarded £350k to support the development of its plant-based fish. And on top of that, NothingFishy, was this month acquired by The Mothership for an undisclosed seven figure sum. 

We are seeing progress! It’s all very exciting.
