It just got way easier for restaurants to add Ahimi to their menu.
Ocean Hugger Foods has launched a new sales channel through DOT Foods, America’s largest food redistributor.
Availability through DOT gives Ocean Hugger Foods a national distribution network and allows restaurants across the US to order Ahimi with ease. Mt. Sterling, Ill.-based DOT has nine distribution centers serving all 50 states. Deliveries of Ahimi started February 18, 2019.
Launched in late 2016 at select Whole Foods sushi counters, Ahimi has been lauded by the Wall Street Journal, CBS Saturday Morning, and Inc. among others. Approximately 25% of the US population, many of whom are not vegetarian or vegan, are eating and drinking plant-based proteins on a regular basis. Demand for Ahimi has continued to grow as consumers shift to plant-based alternatives for reasons of health, sustainability, and animal welfare.
Our partnership with DOT will allow restaurants and foodservice establishments of all sizes to easily order and serve Ahimi to showcase their commitment to seafood sustainability and inventive menu options for plant-based customers.
Chefs and restaurateurs should contact their distributor sales representative to order Ahimi. For marketing support materials and to be included on our menu locator, get in touch via our foodservice page.
Consumers hoping to see Ahimi included on their favorite menus should let their favorite restaurants know about its availability through DOT and direct them to our foodservice page to get in touch.
