- IKEA in the Uk have chosen to make their christmas buffet meat-free solely for the sake of the environment. They experience that more and more of their customers are so-called 'fleksitarer', and have therefore wanted to test it with a meat-free christmas menu. But it is important to stress that julemenuen is a supplement to the existing menu, so it will also be possible to get served meat in british stores, said Christian Mouroux.
