Abu Dhabi Culinary Season Celebrates Vegan Month with The Brooklyn Creamery

Abu Dhabi Culinary Season 2020 is here! The six-week food festival running until December 15 continues to elevate dining experiences throughout the capital, through a diverse and innovative programme. Led by local and international chef talent, expect limited edition menus, exclusive offers and engaging competitions, with something for all palettes and price points.

In celebration of this year’s Vegan Month, we’ve partnered with The Brooklyn Creamery to offer ten competitions on our social platforms for ice-cream lovers to win vouchers worth up to AED 200 to spend on the vegan range. 

1. Have you seen a rise in people looking for vegan desserts lately? Is there an appeal in the UAE specifically for “guilt free” treats?

There is an increase in following a vegan lifestyle across the world and this has increased the demand for dairy free alternatives across all food products. Many brands are now offering dairy free alternatives to respond to the consumer demand. In the UAE, consumers are growing more health conscious and looking for products which are healthier and guilt free. This demand will only rise in the coming years with millennials leading the movement. 

2. What are you doing to entice the vegan community to visit at The Brooklyn Creamery? 

Innovation is at the forefront of everything that we do. The Brooklyn Creamery products deliver an indulgent and creamy dairy free ice cream experience. Our vegan ice creams encapsulate the best plant-based indulgence in a fun and healthier way, offering unusual flavour options like Acai Berry Banana and Salted Peanut Butter. We suggest you do the taste test yourself to discover the difference. You may be pleasantly surprised.

3. How is The Brooklyn Creamery honouring November’s World Vegan Month?

We are excited to celebrate our first vegan month since the launch of our vegan range. We are introducing a brand new flavour for the vegan month which is – Acai Berry Sorbet. We have got some great discounts lined up this month via our delivery partner – Deliveroo, to thank our fans for all the love. 

4. Are you planning to expand your range of vegan products? Is there a new flavour for 2021?

We are proudly preparing a great vegan ice cream season for 2021. Innovation wise we really want to play outside the dairy box to set flavour trends is definitely our mission.

5. How do you envision the future for restaurants catering for vegans over the next 2-5 years?

We are acutely aware that the dairy-free sector is not only trending but growing exponentially worldwide. Locally speaking, consumer knowledge is swaying towards more health-conscious eating decisions and we can already see many restaurant chains including plant-based alternatives on the menu to cater to the vegan audience.
