Gathered Foods, makers of Good Catch® plant-based seafood products, have a good haul of their own to celebrate. The vegan company announced Jan Tharp–President and CEO of The Bumble Bee Seafood Company–as the newest member of its Board of Directors.
Tharp is a recognized industry leade dedicated to redefining sustainability for the seafood industry. She joins the Gathered Foods Board of Directors with over 30 years of experience in the food industry–including more than a decade in the seafood industry.
The appointment underscores the Gathered Foods mission to create a successful wave of plant-based proteins in the U.S. Chris Kerr, CEO and Co-Founder of Gathered Foods said: “The voracious demand for protein alternatives is rapidly changing and evolving in the food industry. We look forward to having Jan’s knowledge and trusted voice on our board as we continue to make plant-based seafood available to consumers everywhere.”
The existing partnership between Gathered Foods and Bumble Bee leverages Bumble Bee’s established distribution network to ensure that Good Catch’s plant-based options are affordable and accessible for consumers across the country.
While the two companies remain independent, Tharp’s addition to the Gathered Foods board ensures that both Gathered Foods and Bumble Bee continue to grow in a sustainable direction.
In terms of product offerings, Good Catch Plant Based Fish-Free Tuna is available nationwide in three flavors: Naked in Water, Mediterranean, and Oil & Herbs.
