Gathered Foods has expanded its Good Catch brand portfolio with the introduction of a new breaded line featuring plant-based fish sticks, fillets and crab cakes.
The three new frozen products are crafted from Good Catch’s proprietary six-legume blend: peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans.
The brand’s plant-based whitefish sticks are coated with a ‘light, crispy’ breading and contain 12g of protein per five sticks. A pack of Good Catch plant-based breaded fish fillets contains two portions, with 12g of protein per serving.
Meanwhile, the plant-based breaded crab cakes are complemented with bell peppers, green onions, parsley and a hint of spice. Each serving contains 15g of protein.
“These products are game-changers for the industry. Consumers have become more aware of the environmental impact of eating seafood and we’re proud to be a delicious, culinary-driven solution,” said Chad Sarno, co-founder and chief culinary officer at Gathered Foods.
“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.”
The breaded products join Good Catch’s portfolio that currently consists of New England style plant-based crab cakes, Thai style plant-based fish cakes, classic style plant-based fish burgers and its original fish-free tuna, available in three varieties.
Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods, said: “This nascent industry, which is ready to surge, presents an immense opportunity for our brand. With our new breaded line, we took fan-favourite seafood products consumers know and love, and transformed them into great-tasting ocean-friendly alternatives.”
The new breaded line will be available in June from select retailers for $5.99 per pack.
Over the last year, Good Catch has been expanding its foodservice footprint – seeing its plant-based tuna feature in tuna melts at all Veggie Grill locations, while Good Catch deli-style plant-based tuna salad is now available across several states in Whole Foods Market prepared foods departments.
