Meatless Meatballs Coming to Ikea

641888791_1377627509.jpgOut of concern for the environment, Ikea announced that it will soon be serving a vegetarian version of its popular Swedish meatball dish.

“We are aware of the meat issue with greenhouse gases,” Joanna Yarrow, head of sustainability for Ikea in the UK, said. “We are looking at all our food products from a sustainability perspective but specifically meatballs. They are very popular and they are also our most carbon-intensive food item on our menu.”

Ikea currently serves an estimated 150 million meatballs made from pork and beef each year. The environmentally friendly and compassionate “veg balls” should be available sometime in 2015.
