High-Quality Tuna Is Coming To Coles Because Aussie Restaurants Are Closed

There haven't been many reasons to get excited since the coronavirus pandemic changed everything about the way we live.

However, there's one tiny silver lining for Aussies who like seafood.

Coles will start stocking high-quality tuna steaks soon because loads of restaurants are closed.

From Wednesday this week, there will be 150 Coles supermarkets will be selling fresh yellowfin tuna steaks across New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland.

They certainly won't be cheap, retailing for $35 a kilogram. But when it's high-quality, how can you turn that down?

All those people who have been dying for their sushi can now make it at home and stave off the hunger a little longer.

Coles general manager Charlotte Gilbert said: "We know many businesses have been impacted by recent events forcing restaurants to close and we're delighted to partner with Walker Seafoods to support them during this time.

"We've also recently begun stocking Western Australian crayfish in selected Coles delis, and partnered with Far West Scallops for the supply of premium Shark Bay scallops."

You would normally have to fork out a lot of money to taste their product, but now you can get it for yourself and cook it at home.

Heidi Walker told Good Food that they're happy to see their seafood going somewhere.

"The coronavirus has turned everything on its head," she said.

"Normally, around 80 percent of our sashimi-grade tuna is exported to the United States and Japan, with the remainder sold exclusively to Australian chefs.

"When the international market collapsed due to COVID-19, and local restaurants were ordered to close, we needed a way to keep our boats fishing and 50 staff employed.

"Two weeks ago I contacted Coles to see if they could help put our tuna in their supermarkets and they jumped at the chance."

It's good to see their delicious tuna and other products going to Coles and no doubt there will be plenty of people who will lap this up while they have the chance.
