OmniFoods said this plant-based katsu musubi “offers the same familiar taste and flavor as traditional Katsu Musubi, with added health benefits.”
This item also looks like a traditional musubi with plant-based meat on top of rice and wrapped in sushi nori.
The plant-based Katsu musubi is a great addition to our menu and reflects our commitment to providing innovative and high-quality products to our customers.”Debbie Lee Soon, Food Innovation & Development Manager at 7-Eleven Hawaii.
OMNI Luncheon is a meat alternative that is plant-based and made with non-GMO soy, wheat, and beets.
This alternative meat is also high in dietary plant fiber, free from cholesterol, and made with lower sodium than typical meat products.
Co-Founder and CEO of OmniFoods David Yeung said he is excited to bring this food item to all 7-Elevens in Hawaii and his mission “is to provide delicious and sustainable plant-based alternatives to the public, and we believe that this partnership with 7-Eleven Hawaii is a great step towards achieving our mission.”
