The new salmon balls are made from ASC-certified salmon with the addition of MSC-certified cod.

IKEA Adds Delicious Salmon Balls to the Popular (M)eatball Range

  (UNITED STATES, 12/5/2018)

The new salmon balls were first introduced in August this year at select test locations in Ikea stores throughout Europe, and now are available in the U.S.

The salmon balls were developed by IKEA Food Services AB as a new member to the popular (m)eatball range which today consists of Swedish meatballs, chicken meatballs and the plant-based veggie balls. Introducing salmon balls is contributing to the IKEA goal to offer a larger variety of healthier and more sustainable food that is delicious, good for the people and has a lower impact on the environment.

Seasoned with seaweed and lemongrass the new salmon balls capture the fresh taste of cold Nordic sea.

The new salmon balls are made from ASC-certified salmon with the addition of MSC-certified cod. Seasoned with seaweed and lemongrass this new product captures the fresh taste of cold Nordic sea in a tasty ball. With four different kinds of (m)eatballs IKEA can meet the food and taste preferences of the many people – vegetarians, flexitarians, seafood lovers, and classic meatball fans.

The new salmon balls are now available at all IKEA U.S. restaurants.

“For the product development of the salmon balls we looked at processing of salmon and realised that there is a lot of potential in other parts of this fantastic fish, the smaller pieces that cannot be used as fillets. We worked closely with our suppliers, optimized the process and together created this tasty source of protein with a lower carbon footprint” says Sabrina Anania-Stepanian, product developer IKEA Food Services AB. “I’m really proud of the new salmon balls and can’t wait for our customers to try them in IKEA Restaurants” she adds. "By making the most of the raw material and creating high-volume use of the smaller pieces of salmon, the salmon balls are a delicious new alternative for customers and a natural next step in making IKEA Restaurants a destination for responsibly and more sustainably sourced food at affordable prices".

A first test in IKEA Restaurants in Portugal shows very positive results: Over 80% of restaurant guests that tried the new salmon balls liked them and almost 90% of customers asked in this survey appreciated the salmon balls as a more sustainable option.

In 2015 IKEA introduced the veggie balls and the chicken meatballs – two healthier and more sustainable options to join the company’s iconic Swedish meatballs on the IKEA menus. Salmon and seafood have a long tradition in Swedish and Scandinavian kitchens. Already today IKEA stores offer various responsibly sourced salmon products: salmon fillet, cured salmon, and cold smoked as well as hot smoked salmon.
