Revo Food’s plant-based salmon fillet featured at rooftop launch
Revo Foods, the Austrian plant-based seafood maker, has managed to create something that many vegans could only dream of before. And only last week, Revo Foods presented it, their vegetable salmon fillet, during a public tasting in Rooftop bar, Zoku, in Vienna. The 100% plant-based salmon fillet was prepared by Michelin-starred chef Siegfried Kröpfl and tested by ten lucky people.
Revo Foods has already filed two patents on new technologies to produce plant-based fish products with their plant-based salmon fillets which will be available in stores from early 2023.
Vienna Plant-Based Seafood
This latest innovation is a first of its kind and is considered a total game changer for many plant enthusiasts. It is classified as a “whole cut” because the fillet resembles the structure and texture of a salmon fillet. It can be prepared in a similar way; fried, baked, or steamed, as you would fish.
This “Generation 2.0” company sees its products as a step up from the first generation of plant-based alternatives. Define the structure and elevate the food experience of the vegan food market as a whole.
And as Robin Simsa, CEO of Revo Food commented, “It’s all about structure and creating the perfect bite.
Industrial fishing means overfishing
As we know, the fishing industry has created a huge problem that has been getting worse for many years. Industrial fishing companies are destroying the marine ecosystem, which amounts to a loss of the ocean’s natural biodiversity. Many people find this to be a concerning and deeply troubling issue that requires immediate action. However, finding a sustainable and more eco-friendly answer to eating fish can be found in products like Revo Food’s Plant-Based Salmon.
So what did some testers think?
About the plant-based salmon fillet, one guest said: “The structure is almost ‘too perfect’, are you sure it’s vegan?”
Fortunately, yes. The base of the tenderloin is made up of various vegetable protein sources, such as pea protein. Next to that, seaweed extracts and vegetable oils. Tenderloin is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids – similar, in fact, to wild salmon.

Besides the plant-based salmon fillet, Revo Foods already offers its first product, an alternative to smoked salmon, available in 16 European countries, including supermarkets in Austria and Germany. Recently, the startup received a €2.2 million grant from the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) to help advance its 3D printing technology.
We can’t wait to see what’s next from Revo Foods!
Fortunately, there has been a lot of development in the plant-based fish movement. It was only recently that we announced that Better Nature had received £350,000 to support the development of its plant-based fish. And on top of that, NothingFishy was acquired this month by The Mothership for an undisclosed seven-figure sum.
We are seeing progress! It’s very exciting.
