Red Lobster CEO says plant-based seafood is ‘terrible,’ has no plans to add it to menu

The meatless meat trend is going strong, but don’t expect it to carry over to seafood, at least not at Red Lobster. The CEO of Red Lobster, Kim Lopdrup recently said, “We have looked into plant-based seafood– it was terrible.”

He also added, “I’m personally passionate about eating healthy, so I’m thrilled to see other consumers becoming more interested, too. While plant-based foods are dramatically healthier than red meat, seafood is an even healthier option. At Red Lobster, we have a large variety of healthy, high-quality seafood options that taste good and are good for you, especially our Today’s Catch options and our new Power Bowls.”
