CATCH, which has three outlets across the city, says it expanded its vegan offering due to demand
A popular Glasgow fish and chip shop chain has expanded its vegan offering.
CATCH, which has outlets in Netherlee, Giffnock, and the west end, has added a plethora of dishes to its plant-based offering including fish fillets, battered sausages and burgers among other options.
According to a spokesperson for the eatery, they added new animal-free options to the menu as there was significant demand for the vegan dishes it already offered.
And according to CATCH, it will be expanding its plant-based menu even further in the future, becoming even more accessible to vegans and vegetarians.

Among the vegan dishes diners can enjoy from the eatery are vegan battered sausages, chicken and fish burgers – both served on brioche buns – and loaded chips featuring toppings like vegan bacon crumbs, chipotle mayo, and fresh chillies.
The plant-based sides on offer (apart from chips) include onion rings, mushy peas, curry sauce, pickled onions and gherkins, and fritters.
CATCH is not the first chippy to offer consumers an alternative to animal products: in 2021, vegan activist Earthling Ed opened a 100 per cent plant-based chippy in Brighton, called The No Catch Co.
According to a statement published on the eatery’s website: “We created The No Catch Co., to give people the taste and experience of eating seafood, but without the immense environmental damage and horrendous suffering and death that comes with eating fish.
“We want to see a future where the oceans, and all the life contained within them, are treated with the respect that they deserve.”
