As the community of plant-based diets gets larger, more companies are more aware and constantly making shifts to cater to a more inclusive group. Large food chains in the nation have partnered up with different plant-based companies to create more options for plant-based pizzas in Indonesia. Recently joined the movement, Pizza Marzano announced the launch of their very own plant-based options.
Available from 17 September 2021 to 14 November 2021, Pizza Marzano has partnered up with OmniMeat to allow customers to customize their orders with plant-based meat on their dough. Although it is only available for a brief period of time, customers could enjoy several menus such as Caesar Salad, Bolognese Pizza, Romana Pizza, and Spaghetti Mushroom, all with the option to switch to OmniMeat toppings.
“We understand the importance of reducing our footprints in the environment, and we can start small by providing plant-based protein options on our salad, pizza, and pasta. Try to be a flexitarian, and joining the ‘Green Monday’ movement can be a good start to show our thoughtfulness towards health and environment sustainability.” explained Anthony Cottan, president director of PT Map Boga Adiperkasa Tbk.
“Our passionate team keeps innovating on how we can continue to offer delicious menus and still be responsible to the planet. Adding OmniMeat to our menu will let the customers customize their orders and still be able to taste their favourite dishes that are rich and delicious without realizing the difference.” continues Ruth Viona Angelika Tobing, Marketing Manager of Pizza Marzano.
While the use of OmniMeat is definitely an innovation, their pizza bread and cheese are still using dairy. Therefore their pizza option may not be suitable for vegans. Vegans might enjoy their salad and pasta, which can be veganized. Pizza Marzano still aimed to cater to flexitarians with this series as well as contributing to the company’s goal of expanding more environmentally friendly choices.
This plant-based series is available throughout all Pizza Marzano locations across Indonesia. Customers can enjoy this menu dine-in their outlets as well as take-away and through delivery orders.
