Owned by parent company Gathered Foods and created by chefs and co-founders Derek and Chad Sarno, Good Catch makes vegan tuna in easy-to-use pouches in three flavors and frozen meals such as crab cakes and fish burgers, all crafted from a proprietary six-legume blend. Good Catch’s plant-based, deli-style tuna is now available by the pound in the prepared foods section of WFM in California, Oregon, Washington, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island. The offering will be available in additional locations in the coming months.

“We’re so excited to launch our foodservice product with Whole Foods Market, an important retail partner of ours, to bring our products into the culinary fold with this exclusive offering of our plant-based deli-style tuna,” Chad Sarno told VegNews. “In addition to this exciting launch, we’re looking forward to continuing our foodservice expansion this year, from fast-casual restaurants to other food retailers.”
