Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch plant-based seafood alternative products, on Thursday, announced the launch of new frozen products that go beyond its tuna.
The company has launched 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, according to the company.
The plant-based category -- seafood and other proteins -- is now worth $5 billion (€4.1 billion) and retail sales of plant-based foods grew 11 percent in 2019 versus 2 percent for the overall retail food market, according to figures from the Plant Based Foods Association.
At the end of March US-based tuna giant Bumble Bee announced CEO Jan Tharp had joined the board of directors for Gathered Foods, following the forming of a joint venture with the company. Bumble Bee is working with the plant-based company on the sales, distribution and logistics for the Good Catch brand.
The new frozen appetizers and entrees are being sold for $5.99 (€5.30) and are now available in retailers across the US East Coast, with expanded distribution throughout the country planned for later this year.
