NEXT EGG 1.0 is an innovative egg alternative product from Japanese food-tech venture company Next Meats and it aims to serve "the vegan population and people with egg allergies in Japan, who have almost no commercial vegan egg options to choose from currently." This is a promising development for those with interests in the future of plant-based eating, since Japan is the world's second largest consumer of eggs. With this sustainable substitute, the company aims to offer a realistic egg alternative with a reduced carbon footprint.
The versatile egg alternative has proven itself to be a versatile ingredient in traditional dishes like egg-topped Oyako don.
NEXT EGG 1.0 is set to be released in Japan on a B2B basis first, followed by B2C channels before it makes its way to other countries.
