IKEA meatballs go vegan! Swedish furniture giant finally launches a plant-based alternative to its famous dish, made from yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple
IKEA is set to launch a vegan version of its much-loved meatballs in a bid to be more sustainable.
The Swedish furniture giant will sell the plant-based treat in its food halls across the UK from 3rd August. 
Developed with the purpose to recreate a meatball without the meat, plant balls  are made from yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple and, according to the retail giant, have just four per cent of the climate footprint of the original version.

For those looking to enjoy other meat-free options, 50 per cent of the food range in IKEA restaurants is now plant-based or vegetarian.
The shift towards selling less meat is the latest move the furniture giant has taken in sustainability.
IKEA set out its People and Planet Positive strategy in 2018, announcing its ambition to become a fully circular and climate positive business by 2030. 
The shop aims to reduce more greenhouse gas emissions  than the IKEA value chain emits and ensure all products are made following circular design principles, as well as being made of renewable, recyclable and/or made of recycled materials.
