Chinese New Year may be coming to an end but it doesn’t mean that our hankering for bak kwa has ended! But we all know how many calories each slice contains…but what if there’s a plant-based alternative that is made from non-GMO soy and wheat, and is both vegan and vegetarian-friendly?

Good news! Local food producer, yumeat™ has launched its plant-based bak kwa that is crispy on the surface while still moist, savoury and chewy on the inside. Each piece is generously glazed and baked to perfection before being packed individually and sterilised. yumeat™’s state-of-the-art factory and processes allow for longer conservation time while preserving nutrients such as protein and fibres.

The guilt-free plant-based bak kwa (270g) is priced at S$28.80 per box and each box contains six individually-vacuum-packed slices for freshness and convenience. Consumers can also choose between the limited-edition red, blue and green boxes.

yumeatTM embodies an unwavering focus on responsible food production. It is made from sustainable ingredients, like non-GMO soy and wheat, in a factory using renewable solar energy and electronic sensors to eliminate energy waste.

The boxes used by the brand are also made of 100% of recycled material. yumeatTM is the visible representation of years of efforts by Denis Group to be a socially conscious company and a steward of nature, measured through Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) criteria.

For instance, the company was awarded the SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement & Leadership) Awards in 2021, as well as the Sustainability Strategy Award by SBA (Sustainable Business Awards), clearly leading the way in ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) goals in Singapore.

“We are truly excited to launch a Singaporean plant-based favourite – the bak kwa. With the launch of yumeatTM’s Plant-Based Bak Kwa, we are continuing our vision of bringing sustainable and nutritious food to consumers. As a leading food producer with a long history of social responsibility, we are committed in constantly developing our R&D to create innovative meat- alternative products which reduce our environmental footprint and put the right food on our plates. Our products are clean, with no added MSG or preservatives, and ingredients are sustainably sourced,” said Ms Nicole Lau, Category Manager (Plant-based), Denis Group.
