IKEA Gears Up To Launch Vegan Meatballs

A lot many loves to visit IKEA for the delectable dishes they serve. Not to mention their quality furniture business. As of plant-based cuisine in the Swedish company’s offering, there are quite some. Say for instance the veggie balls. As the name suggests, the company doesn’t even intend to make the same feel meat-like, and it is great on its own. But having a dedicated meatless iteration of the Scandinavian dish that has been served at the restaurant for 35 years, is ever welcomed.

To the joy of vegans, the company has lately announced that they’re working on a vegan meatball version of their original dish that ‘looks and tastes like meat,’ according to reports.  Gone are the days you settling for something ordinary when your non-vegan friends devour the Swedish Meatballs at the homeware store.

The company’s new vegan meatballs will be crafted from plant-based protein that too sourced from some leading vegan meat supplier of the industry. The product is reportedly set to roll out globally at all their restaurants and the first consumers testing are expected to go on early next year.

Customers Look for More Sustainable Options

Managing director at IKEA Food Services AB, Michael La Cour said in a statement-

“We see a growing demand from our customers to have access to more sustainable food options and we want to meet that need. Our ambition is to make healthier and more sustainable eating easy, desirable and affordable without compromising on taste and texture.

“We know that the IKEA meatballs are loved by many people and for years the meatballs have been the most popular dish in our restaurants.”

Traditionally served with mashed potatoes, lingonberry jam and a cream sauce, the age-old product is still one of the company’s favorite? Vegans could soon join the taste if the things go as planned. What do you think about vegan meatballs? Let me know in comments.
