Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch plant-based seafood, have launched a new range of frozen fish-free entrees and appetizers.
The new line-up consists of New England Style Plant-Based Crab Cakes, Thai Style Plant-Based Fish Cakes, and Classic Style Plant-Based Fish Burgers.
This product extension is the second evolution from the plant-based seafood brand, expanding beyond its existing portfolio of plant-based tuna, which was introduced to the market last year.
“Quality and innovation are essential to the Good Catch culinary journey,” said Chad Sarno, co-founder & Chief Culinary Officer at Good Catch.
“Recreating the taste and texture consumers expect from whitefish and crab cakes challenged our team to push our boundaries. We are really proud of the final outcome.”
The frozen entrees and appetizers are crafted from Good Catch’s proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans), which is high in protein and used as the base of Good Catch products to create the texture that mimics the flakiness of seafood.
The product packaging further advances Good Catch’s commitment to the environment with the carton made from 100% recycled paperboard and post-consumer content and the inner plastic wrap made from 40% post-consumer recycled plastic.
The new frozen appetizers and entrees are now available in retailers across the US East Coast, with expanded distribution throughout the country planned for later this year.
The launch builds on the company’s success earlier this year when it closed a $36.8 million Series B Financing Round.
