Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 2023: Food Crowd, the UAE’s local online shopping platform, is pleased to declare its dedication to assisting regional farmers and elevating the value of consuming locally farmed food. Along with its extensive supply of local products and #golocal cashback reward program, Food Crowd is continually enhancing its platform to help and encourage the nation to support domestic farmers and take part in lowering carbon footprints in the new year.
In support of its sustainability goals, Food Crowd obtains a variety of its fruits and vegetables from regional farms in the United Arab Emirates and promotes the purchase of these products through its #golocal loyalty program, which rewards users with cashback on locally purchased items. Guaranteeing consumers have access to the freshest and best-quality products available while also supporting the local farming community and reducing the customer and producer’s carbon emissions.
Soula Baroudi the Head of Food Crowd stated, “We think it’s crucial to support local farmers and the local economy. In addition to giving our customers the freshest and tastiest fruits and vegetables possible, we support the survival of the regional farming sector by purchasing our products from nearby farms. Being more sustainable would hopefully be one of the many New Year’s resolutions made each year, and we aim to support such resolutions with the user-friendly platform of Food Crowd.”
Additionally, consuming locally farmed produce also lessens the environmental impact involved with importing fruits and vegetables from other nations. This is crucial in the UAE because of the country’s limited water supplies and hot environment.
Food Crowd encourages other businesses and individuals to support local farms and make a conscious effort to consume locally grown produce whenever possible this year. Participation in initiatives such as the #golocal loyalty program can help to build a more sustainable and self-sufficient food system in the UAE.
