Good Catch plant-based seafood has announced its first partnership with Veggie Grill, the 100% plant-based fast-casual restaurant. Starting October 7 through the end of the year, Veggie Grill will add a limited-edition exclusive Tuna Melt to the menu featuring Good Catch’s plant-based tuna.
The tuna melt is made with Good Catch’s tuna salad, a proprietary six-legume blend of peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy, fava beans, and navy beans mixed with diced onion, capers, celery, and fresh dill. The plant-based tuna melt includes vegan American cheese, pickles, and tomato on griddled rye bread.
“At Good Catch, quality and innovation are a crucial part of our culinary journey. We’ve been working for years to bring our high quality, great tasting tuna product to the foodservice industry so that consumers nationwide can reimagine how to enjoy their favorite tuna dishes,” said Chad Sarno, Co-Founder & Chief Culinary Officer of Good Catch. “We are excited to partner with Veggie Grill to offer this delicious plant-based Tuna Melt featuring our plant-based tuna product, and we look forward to an exciting few months ahead as we continue to expand our restaurant footprint.”
Veggie Grill has 37 locations across California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Washington with menu items ranging from nourishing salads and bowls to burgers and sandwiches all free from animal products, antibiotics, and hormones.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Good Catch and bring yet another delicious and innovative plant-based item to our menu,” said Kajsa Alger, VP Food and Beverage at Veggie Grill. “Tuna melts are a comfort food favorite for many people and this fish-free offering is a way for us to satisfy that craving, while staying true to our mission of inspiring the world to make a meaningful impact through the food we eat.”

This is Good Catch’s first partnership with the restaurant industry and is planning a larger retail expansion in the next few months. The plant-based seafood company recently secured a $36.8 million Series B Financing Round, expanded its distribution to Tesco, the UK’s largest retailer, and launched new frozen appetizers and entrees.
The plant-based seafood industry has gained great interest and investment as consumers have become increasingly concerned about preserving our oceans from overfishing and protecting valuable marine life.
