Green Monday, Hong Kong’s plant-based social enterprise, has partnered with FamilyMart Taiwan to roll out Omnipork instant meals across 3,600 locations in Taiwan. The Omnipork Instant Meal Cup under the Mom’s Cuisine series comprise Korean-style Braised Omnipork Noodles and the Stir-fry Thai Basil Omnipork with Rice priced at TWD 49 (USD 1.63) each.
Green Monday founder and CEO David Yeung said: “Introducing plant-based instant cup meals in partnership with FamilyMart will allow Taiwanese [residents] to enjoy healthy meals more conveniently,” adding that he believes the partnership will “bring about a new wave of healthy, convenient and eco-friendly diet trends.”
We had a chance to taste the Korean-style Braised Omnipork Noodles in Taipei. The frozen meal cup had to be microwaved before they could be consumed. Omnipork had the meat-like texture but you would notice it was pork. The overall taste was pretty good. A 4/5 from us at Mini Me Insights.
What it means for instant noodle companies? The new Omnipork Instant Meal Cup demonstrates the possibility for instant noodle makers to start considering incorporating plant-based meat into instant noodle in the near future.
