Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch® plant-based seafood, launched a line of innovative Plant-Based Breaded Fish Sticks, Plant-Based Breaded Fish Fillets and Plant-Based Breaded Crab Cakes. Developed to recreate classic nostalgic comfort foods, the new lineup — crafted from Good Catch's proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans) — offers a plant-based solution to bycatch, mercury contamination and overfishing. These new products are here to positively disrupt the seafood category while delivering comparable protein and the same taste and texture as their animal-based counterparts.
The launch includes:
Plant-Based Breaded Fish Sticks (SRP: $5.99): Flaky plant-based whitefish sticks have 12g protein per five sticks, each coated with a light, crispy breading. They are a convenient freezer option for quick and easy weeknight meals. Sized for little hands to dunk into ketchup, they also make grownup meals. Each box contains 10 fish sticks.
Plant-Based Breaded Fish Fillets (SRP: $5.99): With 12g of protein per serving, our fillets have a tender, flaky whitefish texture encased in a light, crispy breading. Keep these in the freezer for savory, crunchy satisfaction. Each box contains two fish fillets.
Plant-Based Breaded Crab Cakes (SRP: $5.99): An ideal entrée-sized plant-based crab cake with 15g of protein per serving features a lump crabmeat-like texture and sweet crab flavor complemented with bell peppers, green onions, parsley and a hint of spice. Each box contains four crab cakes.
Good Catch has continued to expand its innovative product portfolio amidst the quickly expanding plant-based industry. According to the Good Food Institute (GFI), the retail market for plant-based foods is now worth $7 billion. Over the last few years, the plant-based seafood industry has shown steadfast growth. In fact, according to market research firm Fact.MR, over the next 10 years, the plant-based seafood sector is set to grow at a rate of 28% and will be worth $1.3 billion by 2031.
The new breaded line will be available in June in select retailers including Giant Food, Martin's, Tom Thumb, Randalls and Acme, as well as select Safeway and Albertsons locations. Good Catch has expanded distribution in retail and foodservice planned for late summer and fall of this year.
This product extension is the latest evolution from the plant-based seafood brand, expanding beyond its portfolio of six offerings, including New England Style Plant-Based Crab Cakes, Thai Style Plant-Based Fish Cakes, Classic Style Plant-Based Fish Burgers and Plant-Based Tuna, available in Naked in Water, Mediterranean and Oil & Herbs flavors.
