Fish Peas is created by KARAVELA – one of the leading and largest producers of canned fish and preserves in Europe.
Our major experience in dealing with fish procurement has revealed the issue of sustainable fishing and quotas, which gets a lot of attention from environmental organizations, conscious consumers and governments throughout the world.
That’s why we have decided to partner up with LATRAPS – the largest agricultural cooperative in Latvia. Recently LATRAPS has started an ambitious and promising project – production of pea isolate, which is the most sustainable plant protein in terms of carbon footprint estimations.
At first, we had our doubts about the plant-based food market, but gradually we became aware that KARAVELA’s expertise is fully applicable to this initiative. Most importantly, our involvement allows to address the pressing issue of sustainable food production.
That’s how Fish Peas brand was born. The name suggests that our product is plant-based, but at the same time is driven by our fish foods heritage.
1. Fish Peas
With 140 years of experience in canned fish production, KARAVELA is widely known on the fish foods market. We have invested our expertise, skills and knowledge to create a new plant-based product line. We aim to satisfy growing demand for sustainable lifestyle and plant-based diet with a high-grade and delicious foods.
2. Fish Peas
We have chosen pea as the primary source of protein for Fish Peas because of practical and historical reasons.
Currently the world’s largest producer of pea isolate is Canada – a country with a long tradition of pea cultivation. However, Latvia is located on the same latitude and has also historically been a successful region for growing peas. Taking this into consideration, LATRAPS appears to be a great supplier of raw material for our product.
While pea itself is a highly sustainable crop, additional environmental benefit is provided by shorter supply chain. Cultivation and all stages of processing take place within less than a few hundred kilometers.
Fish Peas comes in 3 forms:
– Flakes – to satiate your hunger
– Salad – to improve your vegetables intake
– Spread – to have a tasty snack
