Japanese develop plant-based pork meal

Next Meats Co. of Tokyo is adding a pork offering to its list of animal-alternative products.

Ryo Shirai, co-founder of Next Meats Co. and chief executive officer of Next Meats Holdings said they have received many requests for pork and fish they believe the release of Next Pork and Next Tuna is an important step towards a more sustainable future.

Next Pork will be available as a ready-to-eat meal, with the pork sliced and sauteed in a slightly sweet but savory sauce consisting of soy sauce and ginger—just like "Shoga-yaki", a popular dish in Japan. 

Next Pork is scheduled to launch first in Japan around October through Next Meats' online shop.
