including plant-based soft serve…..
IKEA has also announced it will be adding
vegan soft serve ice-cream to its bistro menu,
and that the frozen treat should be on offer by Summer 2019.
The brand shared a picture of ice-cream, captioning it:
“100 percent plant-based, 100 percent delicious.
Today we are sharing our ambitions to introduce
plant-based ice cream to the IKEA Bistro.“
The store’s chefs are already working on the product,
according to the post which said: “The development
has started and we aim to bring this alternative
to dairy-based soft ice to IKEA Bistros in Summer 2019.”
