If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to be healthier in 2020, why not start early?
IKEA UK is planning to go completely meat-free this Christmas by rehauling its menu. The decision comes at a time when IKEA is moving towards providing affordable and planet-friendly food.
“As part of our commitment to supporting our customers to live healthier and more sustainable lives, we have decided to launch our first-ever ‘Meat-Free Christmas’ in our restaurants,” IKEA said in a statement. “[…] we really want to encourage our customers to try something new this year.”
Instead of meat, IKEA UK will offer a mouthwatering menu that will please even the pickiest eaters. Some of the dishes that you will find on the menu include vegan Root Vegetable Tart Tatin, vegan mince pies, traditional Brussels sprouts, vegetarian Brie and Cranberry Open Tarts, and more.
The dishes will be part of IKEA’s £5 lunchtime offer and will be available in stores starting November 4.
This move comes as no surprise as big supermarket chains are following the trend to include more vegetarian and vegan meals in their menu. IKEA joins commercial giants such as Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Iceland, Waitrose, Aldi, and Marks & Spencer, who have already unveiled their Christmas menus.
