Yes, you heard right, the Swedish crew behind Ikea and the Ikea kitchens will be bringing us VEGAN meatballs come August 2020.
IKEA will be offering more plant-based alternatives in the future as part of the company’s wider plan to become more sustainable and offer a broader selection to the changing tastes of the community.
The company began testing the product in May 2019 and are obviously now confident that they can roll it out by August 2020.
“It is a really exciting industry! Looking at the quality of the products that we have been tasting I am looking forward to serving a delicious plant-based meatball made from alternative protein at IKEA,” Michael La Cour, managing director of IKEA Food Services AB said in a statement to the press in May. “I hope that the many meatball lovers out there will like it as well.”
We don’t know about you, but we are excited! Watch this space for more to come in the coming months.
