J.R. Simplot has launched a range of tuna-based meals under the John West brand in Australia to target lunchtime consumers.

The Tuna Brown Rice & Quinoa range comprises three variants - Moroccan, Thai Red Curry and Mediterranean. It is free from artificial flavours or preservatives.

Katie Saunders, general manager shelf grocery at Simplot, said: "The new range of John West’s Tuna Brown Rice & Quinoa is the perfect whole meal option for people who desire a delicious, healthy meal but don’t have enough time to prepare it. We have taken the time out of meal preparation and packed in the best, tasty fresh tuna, sauce and veggies with the nutritional goodness of ancient grains.

"Each serve is packed with protein and offers a healthy carbohydrate alternative, meaning you feel fuller for longer. It’s really simple to prepare and can be eaten straight out of the tub."

The range has an RRP of A$4.39 (US$3.36) for a 200g serving.
