"The Plant Based Seafood Co.'s, number one goal is to create, innovate, and produce plant-based food analogs that are clean, sustainable, healthy, and realistic in form and performance. The world’s first ever plant-based oyster poboy proves just that!,” said co-founder of Plant Based Seafood Co., Shelly Van Cleve.

The all-female, family owned company will showcase their poboy innovation via a pop-up at NOLA Poboys (908 Bourbon St, New Orleans, LA 70116) on Friday, December 10th, 2021 from 12pm-4pm, with a special guest appearance by former “Top Chef” contestant and celebrity chef, Spike Mendelsohn.

We plan on blowing minds on Bourbon Street!” said Van Cleve.

With over 20 years of innovating gourmet products in the seafood industry, the mother-daughter duo of The Plant Based Seafood Co. have dedicated their time, energy, and knowledge about the seafood industry to reframe how we view plant-based eating. Using single-cell proteins and fungi to recreate the animals in the oceans from a handful of healthy plants, their success in duplicating the muscles and fibers of shrimp and scallops to appear, taste, and perform like animals come from the combination of ingredients that mimicked crustaceans and mollusks. Algal proteins, which are created from algae seaweed, provide a complimentary flavor profile as well as other micro-protein and microbes that are created using fermentation processes.

Plant Based Seafood Co.’s “Mind Blown” product line – which is free from soy, gluten, dairy, egg, corn, palm oil and is non GMO – currently includes their Coconut Shrimp, Dusted Shrimp, and Dusted Scallops.
