5. Ugly vegetables get a makeover

Gulfood 2022 is launching its first sustainable edition – the Gulfood Zero Waste programme. A unique way that the tradeshow is addressing the major global issue of food waste is by launching a first-of-its-kind citywide activation in which 30 chefs from UAE restaurants, cafes, and dark kitchens, will focus on sustainable practices using local produce via off-site workshops and masterclasses.

The aim is to make the best of ugly produce and eliminate waste. F&B operators taking part include the likes of Boca, Bistro Des Arts, Dibba Bay Oysters and CMP Bar and Grill.
