TOKYO -- Hong Kong's Green Monday will begin selling plant-based meat substitutes in Indonesia and South Korea as the coronavirus pandemic raises health awareness across the world.

In a recent interview with Nikkei Asia, CEO David Yeung said Green Monday will start offering its products in the two Asian countries by June. The Hong Kong-based company set up by Yeung in 2012 will focus on Halal products in Indonesia. Its main product is OmniPork, a substitute for minced pork made of soy and rice.
