On Friday, during a Future of Food panel event, the Swedish chain announced that a series of meat substitutes will be introduced at IKEA stores across the country.
The new menu, which will be rolled out from January 2020, consists of vegetable-rich protein balls, veggie hot dogs and vegetable-based soft ice creams.

The chain also introduces a plant-based children's menu worldwide, so that every child who visits the restaurant has healthy options to choose from.
The vegetarian buffet, which includes vegetarian breakfast, vegetarian balls and wraps, is currently offered at the Tempe inland Sydney store – and is already popular with customers.
& # 39; At IKEA, we are able to challenge not only ourselves but the broader industry & # 39 ;, said IKEA & # 39; s country food manager Ivana Frost.
& # 39; We will challenge our contractors and suppliers to be better, to be more innovative in the way they package and transport their products.
& # 39; As a company that feeds 13 million Australians a year, we can tell suppliers that we are preferred partners researching innovations such as vegetable packaging and reducing active waste in a value chain. & # 39;
