This Plant-Based Pork Alternative Is Officially Hitting Hong Kong

By Brian Spaen

A new vegan startup, Right Treat, has an important goal. They want to cut back on pork consumption in China. Their first product is “Omnipork,” a new meat that provides the same flavor of traditional pork, but is much more sustainable. It follows other meatless products like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, who are both on the rise.

It’s estimated that China will eat roughly 56 million tons of it alone, though there is a push to phase out this much consumption. Back in 2016, the government wanted to cut China’s meat consumption in half to lower greenhouse gas emissions and developing health problems.

Vegan pork? A vegan xiao long bao? Impossible, you say? We are here to tell you that it's real, we've tasted it and it launched today in Hong Kong!!! 🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️🙋‍♂️ "Because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." ➡️➡️➡️Asia plant based pioneer & social entrepreneur David Yeung, founder & CEO of @greenmonday_official has done it again! Introducing his latest venture...{Right Treat} - the world's first plant based PORK MEAT alternative. 🤔Did you know that pork is the most consumed meat in the world? 🐷🐷🐷 🤔And did you know that 65% of the meat consumed in China is pork? 🐖🥓🌭 🍃❤🌍With the launch of Right Treat's ⭐⭐ product Omnipork, a 100% vegan 'pork' mince, made entirely od plants, Green Monday Ventures is solving this massive problem in order to Treat ALL Right. 🍄🍚Omnipork's "proprietary blend of pea, non-GMO soy, shiitake mushroom and rice, our superfood Omnipork offers high-quality complete vegan protein to fulfil our body with 12.2g of protein/serving.
