AUSTIN, Texas, March 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch® plant-based seafood, today announced the nationwide launch of its Plant-Based Tuna in Sprouts Farmers Market, the national supermarket chain known for its selection of fresh, natural and organic foods. This is the brand’s second product launch with the grocer, which will now carry Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna across all stores nationwide.
Crafted from the Good Catch proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans and navy beans), Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna is high in protein and offers the exact flakiness, flavor and nutritional value of seafood without the environmental impacts of commercial tuna fishing. The products are free of mercury, microplastics, dairy and GMOs. The three flavors provide versatility and endless recipe creativity in the kitchen:
- Naked in Water is crafted to be a pantry staple, and an ingredient for added protein in daily meals. It’s best used as a 1:1 swap for conventional tuna.
- Mediterranean has the same great tuna taste and texture of Naked in Water, with rich and satisfying flavors inspired by Southern Europe — garlic, herbs, sweet pepper and a kick of spice.
- Oil & Herbs is ready to eat right out of the package paired with crackers or a green salad. It’s the perfect solution for quick meals or on the go bites.
“We’re thrilled to expand our distribution with Sprouts Farmers Market to give shoppers across the country craveable flexitarian options,” said Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods. “This is an important expansion for us as we continue on our mission to make innovative plant-based products more accessible to consumers.”
Sprouts shoppers hooked on Good Catch’s Plant-Based Tuna can also find the innovative Plant-Based Breaded line in the freezer section. Recreate the experience of nostalgic seafood favorites with the crunch and flavor that both kids and adults love with Good Catch’s Plant-Based Breaded Fish Sticks, Plant-Based Breaded Fish Fillets and Plant-Based Breaded Crab Cakes.
Good Catch Plant-Based Tuna retails for $3.99 per pouch and will be available at all Sprouts Farmers Market locations across the country.
