The retailer nearly as famous for its Swedish meatballs as for its some-assembly-required furniture is working on two new meatball recipes.
IKEA says it will add vegetarian and chicken meatballs to its offerings in 2015.
“IKEA is a responsilbe company, and we believe that we can play an important role in the move towards a more sustainable society,” the retailer said in a statement. “We will continue to sell the regular meatballs that our customers enjoy every day.”
In the Chicago area, the company has stores in Bolingbrook and Schaumburg.
Earlier this month the Swedish retailer bought a wind farm near downstate Hoopeston, the company’s first wind-energy investment in the Unites States and largest renewable-energy investment globally. The company says the wind farm will help it meet a goal to generate as much renewable energy as it consumes by 2020.
