Plant-Based Curry Dishes

IKEA's Curry is Topped with a Beef Alternative Called NEXT Gyudon

— May 19, 2021 — Lifestyle
This spring, Tokyo's Next Meats Co. is collaborating with IKEA Japan for IKEA Japan's Sustainable Food Fair and it will give people the chance to try IKEA's plant-based curry with its signature beef alternative. NEXT Gyudon is a plant-based beef that was created to recreate the Japanese beef bowl in a sustainable way.

NEXT Gyudon is made from soy and is free from any artificial additives, and the meatless beef product is said to recreate the sweet and savory taste to please both vegans and meat eaters.

With the first-of-its-kind plant-based substitute of the Japanese beef bowl, Next Meats is poised for success in Japan, as there are many restaurants that sell only that dish and may want to consider offering a meatless alternative.
Trend Themes
1. Plant-based Alternatives - The rise in demand for sustainable and meatless options in restaurants creates an opportunity for the development of plant-based alternatives.
2. Collaborative Marketing - Collaboration between plant-based meat companies and popular food chains provides a marketing opportunity for both parties to attract new customers.
3. Replicating Traditional Dishes - Creating meatless versions of popular traditional dishes, such as the Japanese beef bowl, paves the way for more innovative plant-based options.
Industry Implications
1. Food and Beverage - The food and beverage industry should explore the development of plant-based meat alternatives to cater to changing consumer preferences.
2. Marketing and Advertising - Marketing and advertising agencies can focus on strategies that highlight collaborations between popular food chains and plant-based meat companies, appealing to eco-conscious customers.
3. Restaurant - Restaurants, particularly those specializing in traditional meat dishes, can explore alternatives to attract eco-conscious customers and tap into a growing market of sustainable dining options.
