Good Catch debuts plant-based fish products


Gathered Foods, the company behind the Good Catch brand, is innovating the plant-based fish category.

The Austin, Texas-based company is rolling out three new products, including plant-based breaded fish sticks, plant-based breaded fish fillets and plant-based breaded crab cakes.

“These products are game-changers for the industry,” said Chad Sarno, co-founder and chief culinary officer at Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch. “Consumers have become more aware of the environmental impact of eating seafood, and we’re proud to be a delicious, culinary-driven solution. We’re pushing culinary boundaries every day to deliver the taste and texture consumers expect from seafood. This product line has surpassed our expectations and we are incredibly proud.”

Made with such ingredients as peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans, the products deliver comparable protein, as well as the same taste and texture as their animal-based counterparts, the company said.

“This nascent industry, which is ready to surge, presents an immense opportunity for our brand,” said Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods. “As we continue to grow, our focus remains on creating craveable plant-based seafood alternatives that deliver on taste, texture and comparable protein. With our new breaded line, we took fan-favorite seafood products consumers know and love, and transformed them into great-tasting ocean-friendly alternatives.”

Consumers can find the latest launches from Good Catch at such retailers as Giant Food, Martin’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Acme, Safeway and Albertsons.
