Small things can make a big difference. Take our new plant ball, for example. It has the great taste and texture of the IKEA meatball but only 4% of the climate footprint. That means it’s just as delicious – only smarter. Have a bite!
The plant ball is proof that a less meaty future can be just as delicious, whether you’re a meat lover or not. Made with pea protein, potatoes, onion, oats and apple, it has the taste and juicy bite of the IKEA meatball – minus the meat. Instead, the perfect meaty taste is achieved by adding umami flavours, like mushroom, tomato and roasted vegetables.
The world is facing urgent climate challenges. Realising the importance of taking immediate action, IKEA works hard to deliver on our ambition to be climate positive by 2030. One piece of the puzzle is increasing the proportion of plant-based food – such as the all-new plant ball. Going greener is important for us all, whether we’re meat lovers, flexitarians, vegetarians or vegans.
The new plant ball joins the growing family of IKEA meatballs and launched in HK IKEA stores. In the Swedish Restaurant, the dish will be served with mashed potatoes, cream sauce, lingonberry jam and peas, just like the traditional meatball plate – and at the same low price. Of course, the plant ball will also be available from the Swedish Food Market in our stores. Curious? Go on – have a taste!
