(International, 6 February 2020) Taiwan’s biggest quick service restaurant (QSR) chain, Bafang Yunji, is partnering with Green Monday to debut its very first plant-based OmniPork dumpling series across Taiwan. Two plant-based options: OmniPork Pan-fried dumplings and OmniPork boiled dumplings are now available at nearly 1,000 stores across Taiwan, and priced at TWD6 each. On 12 January 2020, the first day of the OmniPork dumplings launch in Taiwan, they were sold out in many stores, selling over one million each week since their debut. The OmniPork dumpling series will be launching in Hong Kong at a later date.
Bafang Yunji is Taiwan’s biggest quick service restaurant chain, with more stores than any of the Western brands. With nearly 1,000 stores across Taiwan and being the number one brand of specialised dumpling QSR store, they are committed to providing customers with fresh and quality food.
(*editor’s note: McDonald’s is the largest Western chain in Taiwan, and trails behind at approximately 400 stores.)
“The whopping weekly sales of one million OmniPork dumplings in Taiwan Bafang Yunji far exceeds our expectations and is a loud-and-clear statement that Asian markets are ready for change once tasty, innovative and affordable options are available to them,” said Mr. David Yeung, founder of OmniPork and Green Monday.
“It is a pleasure to collaborate with Green Monday and introduce our first-ever plant-based dumpling, featuring the pork alternative OmniPork, that has taken the world by storm. Our partnership with Green Monday strives to develop the best OmniPork dumpling recipe, making plant-based options more accessible and appealing to our customers,” founder of Bafang Yunji, Mr. Lin Jiayu, said.
