Gathered Foods expands production, distribution
Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch plant-based seafood products,
has opened a new dedicated production facility at its Heath, Ohio,
headquarters.
The 42,500 sq ft. facility was constructed specifically for high-tech
production of Good Catch's plant-based product offerings, according
to the company. It features state-of-the-art processing equipment to
produce best-in-industry plant-based foods.
" We are incredibly proud to establish a strong manufacturing
footprint in the US as we grow our product portfolio, " said Christine Mei,
CEO of Gathered Foods. " With Good Catch's rapid expansion and the
launch of our new line of frozen plant-based entrees and appetizers,
having our own production facility enables us to optimize productivity
and efficiency. We are fully committed to delivering high quality plantbased seafood products which delight and satisfy our consumers each
and every time. "
Good Catch's line includes New England Style Plant-Based Crab
Cakes, Thai Style Plant-Based Fish Cakes, and Classic Style Plant-Based
Fish Burgers, launched in 2020 in retailers across the East Coast.
The entrees and appetizers are crafted from Good Catch's proprietary
six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy
beans), which is high in protein and used as the base of Good Catch
products to mimic the texture and flakiness of seafood.
The opening of the new facility follows the company's securing
of $36.8 million Series B Financing Round and the expansion of its
distribution footprint on an international scale with its Tesco launch
in the UK.
In other recent news, Good Catch announced a joint distribution
venture with Bumble Bee Foods, as well as new backing from
celebrities Woody Harrelson, Shailene Woodley, Paris Hilton and Lance
Bass, which, the company says, " signifies the overwhelming belief in the
future of plant-based seafood. "

GARDEIN'S RETAIL CATCH
Richmond, British Columbia Gardein offers two
plant-based seafood alternatives, available online and
in-store at many leading retail chains.
The company's Mini Crabless Cakes are " swimming
with flavor and made for sharing, " according to
Gardein. The 8.8-ounce product ships in 10-count
packs. The cakes are made from wheat flour, soy,
green onions, potato starch, garlic, chickpea flour and
other ingredients and are certified vegan, kosher and
dairy-free.
Gardein's other plant-based seafood product, a Golden
Fishless Filet, ships in a 10.1 ounce pack and is also
certified vegan, kosher and dairy free. Coated in a light
golden tempura batter, Gardein Golden Fishless Filets
contain omega-3s and no cholesterol, are ready-toeat in 10 minutes and contain 9 grams of plant-based
protein per serving.

Trader Joe's takes a look
During a recent episode of Trader Joe's podcast Inside Trader Joe's, Amy
Gaston-Morales, the category manager of Deli, Frozen Meat, Seafood,
Meatless, and Fresh Beverage at Trader Joe's, revealed that the company
is taking a serious look at plant-based seafood, according to thebeet.com.
" I'm looking to do more work on the seafood side, " Gaston-Morales
said in the podcast. " We don't have the option yet within our stores for a
plant-based seafood product, but there are crab cakes out of the market
or scallops or tuna replacements. "  
Trader Joe's thus far has focused its plant-based efforts on versions
of burgers, sausages, breakfast items, and even its famous Mandarin
Chicken.
