launched Green Common in 2015 as the world’s first plant-based concept store, and has most recently opened Green Common, a brand new 3,000 sq ft plant-based concept store and café in Singapore last month, marking its first store in Southeast Asia and the 11th outlet worldwide. The one-stop plant-based retail outlet and café features several iconic brands and access to over 50 plant-based products including Omnimeat, Beyond Burger, Beyond Sausage, Heura, and Chick’n Nuggets by Alpha Foods.

Last December, Green Monday Group partnered with Accor Group to bring Omnimeat creations to several of their hotels, including Raffles Singapore and Fairmont Hotel Singapore. Nigel Moore, Accor’s Senior Vice President F&B, SE Asia, Japan & South Korea says “Accor serves 200 million meals a year worldwide, which means that we have a dual responsibi­lity in turning consumer thoughts and values into action, by making sustainabl­e options more accessible. Our goal is to offer our guests healthy, sustainabl­e food while eliminatin­g food waste, and making healthy and sustainabl­e food more affordable and desirable, and we are increasing­ly moving towards more plant-based offerings and experience­s at our hotels.” He added that a decade ago, a vegan or casual vegetarian lifestyle would be deemed as strange. But now, it is normal and even a social standing positionin­g.
