Next Meats Co., the alternative meat venture company based in Tokyo, announced that their signature plant-based bbq meats NEXT Kalbi and Harami (short-rib and skirt steak style, respectively) will be available at the meat section of Ito Yokado; a Japanese superstore chain, starting March 29th. This is the first time the Next Meats products are going to be sold in a retail store alongside regular animal produce, giving the plant-based meats a strong positioning and remarkable opportunity to reach new customers.

 

Plant-based meats are becoming increasingly popular and available around the world and Japan, but most products were typically displayed in the soy products, dried foods, or preserved food sections, which undoubtedly contributed to consumers' lack of interest and association that it is a viable protein substitute.

 

However with a superstore chain like Ito Yokado displaying Next Meat's plant-based meats alongside animal meat, alternative proteins may finally be recognized as an equally sufficient source of protein as regular meat. Though Japan has an impressive food culture, it was quite common for travelers with vegan or vegetarian preferences to experience diet restrictions while visiting the country. But it may be safe to say a paradigm shift is coming to Japan!

 

Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of global carbon emissions, but that is not widely known in Japan. Next Meats was founded to change that, and increase awareness of the climate crisis and deliver delicious beef substitutes with a taste of tradition.

 

Next Meats Co. is famous for their rapid growth and collaboration with Yakiniku Like, a Japanese BBQ restaurant with stores all across Japan, where Next Meat's plant based NEXT Kalbi and Harami is available. The company was founded in June of 2020 and already operates in several countries, and was listed on the American OTC Market in January of 2021.

 

As they strive for world expansion and move with great speed, it may not be long before you can try the NEXT products in your country!

 

 

도쿄에 본사를 둔 대체 육류 벤처기업 Next Meats Co.가 3월 29일부터 Ito Yokado 스토어 체인점의 고기 코너에서 판매된다. 식물성 육류는 전 세계와 일본에서 점점 인기를 얻고 있고 이용 가능하지만, 대부분의 제품은 일반적으로 콩 제품, 건조식품 또는 보존식품 섹션에 표시되어 소비자의 관심이 부족했다.

Next Meats 제품이 일반 육류와 함께 소매점에서 판매되는 것은 이번이 처음이며, 이는 식물성 육류가 새로운 고객에게 다가갈 수 있는 기회를 제공할 것이다.
