IKEA Canada has launched its Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC)-certified salmon ball to restaurants in Canada.

The meatball, which also includes Marine Stewardship Council (MSC)-certified cod, is seasoned with seaweed and lemongrass, and will be accompanied with seasonal side dishes such as mashed potatoes and tomato spinach ragout for $6.99 (€6.12).

"At IKEA, we want to inspire and enable Canadians to live a healthy and sustainable life, within the limits of the planet," said Danielle Beauchesne, IKEA Canada's food manager. "With the IKEA salmon ball, we are able to offer a delicious new plate inspired by our Swedish roots, with a carbon footprint that is approximately seven times lower than the traditional meatball."

The company has been heavily promoting the salmon meatball since the item debuted last August.
