Ikea’s iconic swedish meatballs are still there but they have added new Veggie balls.
I think this is a progressive move on their part.
The launch of the veggie ball is the first step to include a wider variety of healthier and more sustainable food choices. The veggie ball consists of only vegetables and therefore has a lower environmental impact, such as a lower carbon footprint. This is a natural step for IKEA, building on the vision of creating a better everyday life for the many through the company’s People & Planet Positive strategy.
The new veggie ball, GRÖNSAKSBULLAR, is a good alternative to the loved meatball, which was re-launched in 2014 with a new hormone and antibiotic free recipe. The veggie ball derives its rich taste from hearty pieces of vegetables. The recipe is vegan friendly, made without gluten and will cost $5.99 for an eight piece meal. A new delicious menu of seasonal side dish options will be offered for the veggie ball meal.
I can’t wait to try this on my next trip to Ikea!
