Did you know that Ikea is Sweden's largest exporter of meatballs? While the retail giant is best known for its affordable, some-assembly-required furniture, it has recently taken on the culinary world with The Ikea Swedish Food Market.

Since 2004, Stockholm Design Lab has been working on Ikea Food, a project that includes over 200 unique products.  According to SDL, Ikea Food products should express three key ideals: reliability, quality and of course, Swedishness. These values shine through in the line's clean, colorful, and contemporary packaging that looks--for lack of a better phrase--totally Ikea. So, the next time you find your stomach growling while cruising the blue and yellow box for that perfect Malm dresser, remember to check out the in-house Food line. It'll have you saying, "Meatballs, anyone?"
