After the launch of Omnipork strips in May, OmniFoods’ latest product, Omnipork Luncheon—a plant-based Spam-like product that has the exact look and feel of the canned processed meat—is set to hit the shelves at Green Common stores across Hong Kong on 27 August.
Founded in 2018 as a food-tech company under David Yeung’s Green Monday brand, Omnifoods launched Omnipork that spring, reinventing ground pork as a plant-based lab-made product. In May 2020, the company debuted Omnipork strips and Omnipork Luncheon as new retail products, and introduced the ingredient to the menu at Green Common’s Kind Kitchen, with dishes such as Omnipork Luncheon and Eggless toast and Omni K-Ramen (Omnipork Luncheon ramen with kimchi). Back in May, we sampled the Omnipork Luncheon, served pan-seared, in the "classic" way. The slices of vegan "spam" were caramelised on the hot pan, releasing a meaty aroma. The product was mildly seasoned, while the texture resembles a soft, loosely-packed meatloaf.
