A 3D printed vegan salmon fillet is making its supermarket debut in what is being described as a world’s first.
Created by Austrian startup Revo Foods, the plant-based alternative is made from mycoprotein and promises the same ‘flakiness and juicy fibres’ of animal-based fish.
It also boasts a Nutriscore – Europe’s most popular front-of-packet food labelling system – of ‘A’. This is thanks to its high protein and Omega-3 content.

3D printed vegan salmon – where to buy
The vegan salmon fillet will launch in supermarket chains Rewe and Billa on September 14.
Customers will also be able to purchase ‘The Filet’ on the brand’s online shop, starting October 1.
A 130g box of ‘The Filet’ costs €6.99 (around £6). However, the fishless product is only currently available in Germany and Austria.
‘The future of food’
Revo Foods say its 3D printing technology is key in ‘recreating an authentic taste that appeals to flexitarians’. It also hinted future releases may include a vegan steak filet.
In a statement sent to Vegan Food & Living, CEO Robin Simla hailed the industrial-scale of 3D food printing as a ‘game-changing’ milestone.
“We’re entering a creative food revolution, an era where food is being crafted exactly according to the customer needs,” he added.
“We’re not just creating a vegan alternative; we’re shaping the future of food itself.”
