Seafood lovers and plant-based seekers are in for a real treat as Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch®, announced the launch of its new United States-made Plant-Based Salmon Burgers. Delivering on both taste, texture, and awareness, the new product is a surefire hit in your refrigerated sector as the company partners with United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI).
“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, Chief Executive Officer 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.”
With 30 percent of seafood consumers purchasing salmon monthly, noted the release, Good Catch was determined to create an innovative alternative for one of the most consumed fish in the U.S. This new product propels the plant-based seafood industry forward, demonstrating dedication to expanding the Good Catch lineup of culinary-driven plant-based seafood options. With the addition of Plant-Based Salmon Burgers, Good Catch provides a new flavor profile for an even larger audience of vegans and flexitarians to enjoy.
The new Plant-Based Salmon Burgers deliver on the best part of salmon: its delicate texture and mild-yet-rich flavor, adding a juicy touch of citrus to round out its flavor profile. At 16 g of plant protein per serving, the Good Catch Plant-Based Salmon Burger is a delicious, easy meal to prepare without the unwanted fishy smell once cooked.
“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 Chief Culinary Officer. “We are excited to see consumer response to our Plant-Based Salmon Burgers, which provides a convenient meal solution without the harm.”
Good Catch now offers a portfolio of 10 product offerings, consisting of a line of shelf-stable Plant-Based Tuna and frozen lines of appetizers and entrées, including breaded offerings such as Plant-Based Fish Fillets, Fish Sticks, and Crab Cakes. Additionally, Good Catch products are protein-packed, dairy-free, and include the company’s proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans, and navy beans), achieving a texture that mimics the flakiness of seafood without GMOs, mercury, or environmental toxins.
