Abu Dhabi’s first-ever plant-based meat factory opens
Vegetarian and vegan options have moved forward leaps and bounds, and you won’t find many menus that don’t feature at least one plant-based meat item these days.
While you might think cutting meat out would make your grocery shop cheaper, those who crave alternatives will know that they’re often just as pricey, or even pricier, than the real thing.
But now the launch of Abu Dhabi’s first-ever plant-based meat factory has given us hope that more affordable alternatives are on the way – and very soon.
Homegrown start-up Switch Foods has just opened its 20,000 sq ft factory in Khalifa Industrial Zone that will begin producing 100 percent GMO-free, soy-free, allergen-free, gluten-free, vegan, and halal-certified kebabs, kofta, sujuk, minced meat and burger patties from May 1.
