Dear MEL Topic Readers,

‘Fake’ meat on the menu as China reopens restaurants

China is slowly reopening business and consumer activities after the outbreak of the COVID-19. As airlines are trying to lure fliers with heavy price discounts (Vol.2936 on Apr.25), restaurants are introducing new menus to attract customers. One relatively new item to Chinese is meat substitutes. Unlike Westerners, Chinese people traditionally eat more vegetable-rich meals to live a healthy life. However, as more people become overweight and/or health-conscious, the demand for non-meat food seems to be on the rise especially after the novel virus outbreak. Now, Starbucks and KFC are adding plant-based food menus to revive their businesses. As more people become worried about the safety of wet markets, where fresh meat, fish, and other produce are sold, marketers are hoping to make such manufactured food items as popular as in the USA.

Well, if there are over 3,000 Starbucks and nearly 6,000 KFC restaurants across the country, many Chinese people will find meat-free sandwiches and nuggets quite soon.

Enjoy reading the article and think which dumplings you want to have, traditional ones, or artificial ones.
