Ahead of World Vegan Day on November 1, 2023, Emirates has unveiled some new additions to its onboard menus.
The Dubai-based carrier has detailed that a selection of new vegan options will be available in its first, business, and economy class cabins.
Emirates has confirmed that the menu update comes following a noticeable increase in demand for vegan cuisine when flying.
Here’s what we know about Emirates’ latest menu additions.
Emirates’ New Vegan Options
The new vegan options for Emirates first and business class has been a year in the making with the recipes taking inspiration from a mixture of global cuisines to cater to the airline’s diverse passenger base.
Meat-free dishes are available both in Emirates lounges and onboard its flights.
In first and business class, 1 of the new vegan dishes that passengers will get to enjoy is a plant-based kofta by the ‘Beyond’ meat company.
To finish things off on a sweet note, organic dark chocolate with 60% raw cocoa from the Dominican Republic has been used to create delicious vegan desserts.
Passengers flying Emirates regularly in economy will get to enjoy a fresh selection of vegan options each month with current favorites including creamy spinach and avocado mousseline with marinated tofu, blanched snow peas, radish, asparagus, pomegranate seeds, courgette ribbon, and sriracha oil.
Economy passengers will also get to enjoy an array of mouth-watering new desserts including a dark chocolate custard cake with strawberries, a lemon tart with a touch of coconut cream, and a chocolate tofu cheesecake with a side of strawberry compote for good measure.
Emirates’ new plant-based menu options bring more choices for vegans and vegetarians as well as those looking to make healthier choices and make an effort to eat less meat in the name of sustainability.
Not only that, but Emirates has made a conscious effort to source ingredients for its new menu from UAE-based supplier Bustanica — the world’s largest hydroponic vertical farm.
Watch out for a variety of new meat-free options onboard your next Emirates flight.
The Middle Eastern carrier is dedicated to offering its passengers more choices when it comes to inflight meals which is great news for vegans, vegetarians, and the environment alike.
