What is plant-based meat?
The idea of a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle has been around for a long time, but it's only recently been gaining traction here in Japan.
Recently, there have been more and more people shifting from a meat-based lifestyle to a more plant-based one for a number of reasons including health, environmental awareness, etc.
Products that cater to these lifestyles by imitating the appearance and texture of more traditional meat products are called "meat alternatives" or "plant-based meat".
Plant-based meat has been gaining more and more hype among the younger generation in America and Europe. Even the ones who aren't vegan!

ABOUT THE BRAND
OMN!MEAT is developed by a Hong Kong-based company called Green Monday.
This company cares about the environment and is involved with an NPO that promotes the idea of Meatless Mondays to spread awareness of the plant-based lifestyle to companies and schools.
They also introduced the idea that you don't have to deprive yourself of delicious food derived from animal products. There are plant-based alternatives that are just as delicious!
In Asian countries like Hong Kong, pork consumption is higher than beef.
By studying Asian food culture and making some improvements, they have developed a way to produce a pork substitute that has a similar texture to pork and also remains juicy even after being heated! Thus, Omnimeat was born!
Place it in the refrigerator for 8 hours or thaw under running water without opening it.※The color will not have a significant difference after thawing compared to raw meat.
