AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch® plant-based seafood, today announced its nationwide launch in Sprouts Farmers Market, the national supermarket chain known for its selection of fresh, natural and organic foods. The healthy grocer now carries the latest product innovations from Good Catch — Plant-Based Breaded Fish Sticks, Plant-Based Breaded Fish Fillets and Plant-Based Breaded Crab Cakes — across 340 stores nationwide.
Crafted from the Good Catch proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans), the plant-based breaded offerings are a good source of protein and free of mercury, microplastics, dairy and GMOs. The innovative breaded line recreates the experience of nostalgic seafood favorites with the crunch and flavor that both kids and adults love. The Plant-Based Breaded Fish Sticks are a deliciously flaky plant-based whitefish in a light, crispy breading with 12g protein per five sticks. The Plant-Based Breaded Fish Fillets have 12g of protein per fillet with a tender, flaky whitefish texture in a light, crispy breading. The Plant-Based Breaded Crab Cakes feature a lump crabmeat-like texture and sweet crab flavor complemented with bell peppers, green onions, parsley and a hint of spice with 15g of protein per two cakes.
“Sprouts Farmers Market is charging up the retail industry at a remarkable pace with their plant-based offerings,” said Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods. “And we’re thrilled that the Sprouts team believes in our mission-driven product line that delivers on taste, texture and comparable protein. We look forward to delighting Sprouts shoppers who are looking for craveable plant-based foods.”
This innovative breaded line complements the Good Catch portfolio of six offerings, including Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes, Plant-Based Thai Style Fish Cakes, Plant-Based Classic Fish Burgers and Plant-Based Tuna; available in Naked in Water, Mediterranean and Oil & Herbs flavors, as well as a food service package.
This year, Gathered Foods is determined to continue growing the Good Catch market footprint through new, bold distribution alignments. Earlier this year, Good Catch announced its partnership with Whole Foods Market with a plant-based deli-style tuna salad in the prepared foods section, now available across stores nationwide. In February, Good Catch partnered with Bareburger to launch its Plant-Based Classic Fish Burgers in a signature menu item called The Gulf. In July, Good Catch launched its new Breaded Plant-Based Fish Fillets and Plant-Based Crab Cakes for a limited time in Long John Silver’s as the first plant-based offering at the national seafood chain. Most recently, the brand announced its first wholesale partnership with BJ’s Wholesale Club to offer its Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes to members nationwide. The team is continuing to further its food service partnerships to meet the growing consumer demand nationwide and across the world.
The Good Catch breaded line retails for $5.99 and will be available at all Sprouts Farmers Market locations across the country.
