Island Poké founder James Gould-Porter said: “At Island Poké, we are committed to creating products that excite our customers and bring our brand to the next level.
“We’re delighted to be bringing our new Poké Bao to the food scene, using ingredients from our poké bowls that our customers know and love.
“Creating a new item that incorporates our Fresh Pacific Flavours with a soft, light and bespoke bao bun felt like a great way to expand our offering, giving customers a fun and new handheld way to eat their poké at great prices.”
