As the leading advocator and manufacturer in Asia, Green Monday Group has spared no efforts in promoting healthy and sustainable diets, aligning with The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi mission to promote sustainability. The two joined forces to introduce brand-new vegetarian dishes curated from the Omnipork series and a variety of plant-based products in the hotel’s restaurant Cachet, allowing patrons to taste the delicacies concocted by star chefs, as well as taking a step forward to the goal of sustainability side by side.
In the thriving market of plant-based products, OmniPork, the star product developed by an experienced Canada-based food scientist team, is indistinguishable from actual pork. Made from a proprietary blend of plant-based protein from pea, non-GMO soy, shiitake mushroom and rice, OmniPork is a rich source of nutrients, providing essential amino acids for the human body, and is cholesterol-free, antibiotic-free, hormone-free and cruelty-free, satiating the modern pursuit for health and environment protection, and embodying the crucial idea of sustainability. The plant-based sister products of the OmniPork series includes OmniPork Luncheon and OmniPork Strip, which were also tailor-made for Asian cuisines. Other plant-based products, including the crowd-favorites from the Euro-American scene, Moving Mountains Burger and Califia Farms Oatmilk, is also used to create the vegetarian menu.
The brand-new vegetarian menu will be available in Cachet starting September 13, including the vividly colorful OmniPork Luncheon Garden Salad, Chessy OmniPork Lasagna, Sichuan OmniPork Strip Pizza, the crunchy and fragrant Salted Egg Yolk Nori and OmniPork Luncheon, Moving Mountains Burger with Potato Wedages and two desserts made with the infamous Califia Farms Oatmilk, the Califia Farms Oat Milk & Choclate Verrines and Califia Farms Oat Milk & Raspberry Pie.
Moreover, starting from September 13, the hotel will launch “Meat Free Monday,” where on every Monday, Cachet will replace red meat with plant-based meats in its lunch buffet, allowing customers to go vegetarian once a week without a hassle, taking a step forward to reduce carbon emission, and making them the pioneers of the industry.
Mrs. Cindy Ying, Director of Sales & Marketing of The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi, said “The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi treasures resources and concerns on sustainable development. The hotel has won certification issued by EarthCheck for 6 consecutive years. The creative “Green Monday” buffet lunch is definitely a breakthrough of Cachet restaurant as well as a great demonstration of the Langham’s Green lifestyle image.
