In this week’s episode, we welcome Aki Kaltenbach, Founder,
and CEO of Save Da Sea, a plant-based seafood company based in
Victoria, BC. While working at her family’s Japanese restaurants, a
newly vegan Aki was looking for seafood alternatives to serve
customers. When she couldn’t find options, she started her own
recipes, and what started as a side hustle became a full-time
business in 2019. Save Da Sea Products are made of wholesome
ingredients that have the same nutrients and flavour as seafood but
without the toxins and harmful impact on our planet and are
currently available in 500 retailers across Canada — including
Sobeys, Healthy Planet, and Whole Foods. Aki was recently included
in Western Living’s list of Foodies of the Year and was also the
recipient of the BC Food and Beverage Rising Star Award in 2021.
