Omnipork will launch its retail pack by the end of 2018 (targeting November), so for now you can enjoy Omnipork at participating restaurants. Once the pack is released, we will get a complete look at the ingredients, but all we know now is that it is made from plant-based proteins including peas, non-GMO soy, shiitake mushrooms and rice.
Here’s where you can get a taste of this game-changing faux meat option in Hong Kong:
