Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch plant-based seafood, has launched its new U.S.-made plant-based salmon burgers.
With 30 percent of seafood consumers purchasing salmon monthly, Good Catch was determined to create an alternative for the most consumed fish in the U.S.
The new plant-based salmon burgers deliver on the best part of salmon: its texture and rich flavor, adding a touch of citrus to round out its flavor profile. Each serving contains 16g of plant protein.
“Culinary innovation is at the forefront of everything we create at Good Catch, and this new salmon will be an absolute game-changer in the market that boasts incredible flavor and texture,” said Chad Sarno, co-founder and CCO at Gathered Foods. “We are excited to see consumer response to our plant-based salmon burgers, which provides a convenient meal solution without the harm.”
This new offering from Good Catch will be available through a new partnership with United Natural Foods Inc., a natural and organic grocery wholesale distributor.
Through distribution centers across the country, UNFI will help Good Catch reach a variety of retailers and consumers eager to try a new plant-based seafood option. These retail partners will be crucial to the continued expansion of Good Catch’s distribution footprint.
“With the launch of our plant-based salmon burgers, we are thrilled to add a delicious new seafood category to our growing product lineup of plant-based offerings,” said Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods.
“Through our distribution partnership with UNFI and availability of this product directly on our e-commerce website, we have the opportunity to reach a wider net of consumers and brand fans through the introduction of this new, delicious product offering,” Mei said.
Last year was a successful year for Good Catch. The brand continued to grow its market footprint through distribution alignments including plant-based deli-style tuna at Whole Foods Market nationwide, its plant-based fish burgers in a signature menu item called The Gulf at Bareburger, and a limited-time offering of its breaded plant-based fish fillets and plant-based crab cakes as the newest plant-based offerings at Long John Silver’s.
The brand also has its first wholesale partnership with BJ’s Wholesale Club to offer its plant-based New England Style Crab Cakes and expanded distribution of its frozen breaded line in Sprouts Farmers Market stores nationwide.
Most recently, Sarno and Chris Kerr, co-founder and executive chair, were chosen as global visionaries by UBS, the world’s premier wealth management firm, for their efforts to preserve and protect the planet’s resources through plant-based seafood.
Good Catch offers a portfolio of 10 product offerings, consisting of a line of plant-based tuna and frozen lines of appetizers and entrées, including breaded offerings such as plant-based fish fillets, fish sticks and crab cakes.
Good Catch products are protein-packed and dairy-free and include the company’s proprietary six-legume blend, consisting of peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans. These products achieve a texture that mimics the flakiness of seafood without GMOs, mercury or environmental toxins. Good Catch was named PETA’s 2021 Company of the Year.
Gathered Foods’ packing plant is located in Austin, Texas and its headquarters are located in Heath, Ohio.
