AUSTIN, Texas — Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch® plant-based seafood, today announced its Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes are now available at all BJ’s Wholesale Clubs nationwide. This is the first consumer wholesale partnership between the plant-based seafood company and the beloved one-stop-shop. Just in time for grilling season, BJ’s members now have the opportunity to purchase a club pack of 24 Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes that will transport your taste buds to an East Coast summer beach.
Good Catch’s plant-based seafood products are high in protein and free of dairy, GMOs, mercury, and toxins. The company’s proprietary six-legume blend (peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans, and navy beans) achieves a very pleasing texture that mimics the flakiness of seafood. Good Catch products offer a delicious plant-based solution to bycatch, mercury contamination, and overfishing. The Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes offer a crab meat-like texture and seafood flavor with each bite and are seasoned with sweet peppers, green onions, parsley, and a kick of spice. This product is part of Good Catch’s frozen line of entrees and appetizers, alongside the Plant-Based Classic Fish Burgers and Plant-Based Thai Style Fish Cakes. In May, the brand expanded its frozen offerings with a breaded line that features Plant-Based Fish Fillets, Plant-Based Crab Cakes, and Plant-Based Fish Sticks.
“We offer a craveable range of innovative products that fill a gap in the market, and consumers across the country are asking for products like ours,” said Christine Mei, CEO of Gathered Foods. “Our Plant-Based Crab Cakes have continued to be a fan favorite, and we’re excited to expand our reach with new availability at BJ’s. This launch truly represents the tremendous growth of plant-based offerings and how seafood-alternatives are continuing to spark mass consumer interest.”
Good Catch has been steadfast in growing its foodservice footprint throughout the last year. In 2020, the brand announced its partnership with 100% plant-based restaurant Veggie Grill with an exclusive tuna melt. 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 across select 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. Most recently, 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. The team is continuing to prepare further foodservice partnerships to meet the growing consumer demand nationwide and across the world.
Good Catch Plant-Based New England Style Crab Cakes will be available at BJ’s Wholesale Clubs nationwide for $13.99. To find your nearest club, please visit bjs.com.
