Faux seafood could be the next plant-based craze.

Oct 13 2021

Faux seafood could be the next plant-based craze. YPulse told you all about Gen Z and Millennials’ interest in plant-based meat and how the pandemic has accelerated the fake meat industry. Now, some companies are betting on plant-based seafood to curb demand for fresh-caught fish, and sales for the category grew 23% from 2019 to 2020 according to The Good Food Institute. Good Catch is a plant-based seafood startup that uses peas, chickpeas, lentils, soy beans, fava beans, and navy beans to produce faux fish items like fish sticks, fish fillets, fish burgers, crab cakes, and fish cakes; Thai Union Group (owner of tuna brands like Chicken of the Sea) has started investing in plant-based seafood products including faux crab dumplings, crab meat, and fish nuggets that launched earlier this year in the Thai market; OmniFoods (a Hong Kong startup known for its fake pork product “OmniPork”) is launching a line of plant-based alternatives for fish fillets, fish burgers, and cuts of tuna; and Nestlé is launching Vuna—a vegan alternative to tuna fish.
