Emirates served over 20,000 plant-based meals across all classes in January, known to Vegans worldwide as Veganuary.
The worldwide movement, to encourage Veganism especially in January has seen on board requests for vegan meals increase by over 40% this month.
The airline caters to all its customers and has a range of dedicated menus for medical or religious meal requirements which are designed with a team of nutritionists and chefs.
Vegan meals rank as the third most commonly requested special meal in Economy Class. Last month, travellers voted Emirates as the Best Airline for Vegan Meals in a poll by Vegan News.
Emirates has over 170 plant-based recipes to cater to its vegan customers. Emirates’ team of nutritionists and chefs use the freshest vegetables and unique grains to create the special meals.
Some of the most popular vegan dishes include Mushroom Ravioli, Vegetable Tagine served with couscous, and a Sweet Potato, Lentil and Spinach Ragout served with steaming brown rice.
The meals are served complete with a special selection of mouth-watering vegan desserts such as Key Lime Parfait with date and citrus compote, Moist Chocolate Cake, or a Chia Seed Pudding.
Vegan meals, along with other special meals, are available on all Emirates flights in all classes and can be requested 24 hours before departure. All the menus on board are changed monthly.
