Shrimp are big.

Each year, Americans consume 1.4 billion pounds of shrimp. Our sustainable, plant-based shrimp are every bit as delicious, and healthier for you and the environment than the real thing. Eating New Wave Shrimp allows each of us to make small changes in our lives that have big environmental impacts.
