After years of anticipation, IKEA will be releasing a plant-based meatball in all Australian bistros on October 6.
The new plant-based treat is made to look and taste exactly the same as the original meatball, but with sustainable plant-based ingredients.
The new menu offering is served with mashed potatoes, cranberries and cream sauce – in the same way as the traditional dish and at the same budget price.
Making a new meatball will allow more Australian customers to enjoy the classic IKEA meatball experience.

The plant-based meat substitute is made with yellow pea protein, oats, potatoes, onion and apple, but contains dairy products and is not suitable for those on a vegan diet.
“We are delighted to soon be able to offer a more sustainable option from our original meatball without compromising on the classic IKEA meatball experience,” said IKEA spokesperson Bijanka Zubonja.
“The exclusive sustainable dining experiences allow us to provide Australians with the very first taste of the plant ball, as well as present other sustainable food options in our menu in a way that has never been done before,” said Bijanka.
Customers can also buy home packs of frozen vegetable meatballs from the Swedish food market.

Ahead of the national launch date, IKEA is giving 350 customers in selected states the chance to be the first in the country to taste the plant-based meatball alternative.
Starting in mid-September, shoppers can indulge in a 3-course menu showcasing familiar IKEA food options as part of an unprecedented menu.
To participate in the ‘Sustainable Dining: A Menu That’s Better for You and the Planet’, customers must be a member of the IKEA Family and purchase a ticket online for $ 25 per person.
