Bidfood UAE signed an exclusive foodservice distributorship with the Greece-based Arivia to supply the award-winning Violife brand, catering to rising demand for more vegan products.
“Plant-based options are becoming more and more accessible, so it’s no surprise that the vegan trend has blossomed into a way of life. It’s vital that we play our part in this narrative and join the mission towards helping people, our animal friends and Mother Earth with what we do best: foodservice,” says Jad Asaad, Bidfood UAE’s marketing and brand development manager.
“In an effort to contribute to sustainability and respond to market demand for vegan alternatives, Bidfood UAE has partnered with the world-renowned, Greece-based brand Arivia to supply its high-grade vegan cheese range Violife to local food professionals, which can easily be incorporated into their menus to serve the vegan community in the UAE,” he adds.
Asaad concludes: “With our extensive vegan range, which includes everything from mozzarella, cheddar, cream, Greek white and Mediterranean-style cheeses in a variety of forms – completely free from dairy, soya, gluten, lactose, nuts and preservatives – we’ll be able to help culinary professionals. They can add these new options to their menus in dishes such as burgers, sandwiches, pizza, risotto, salads and desserts to cater to their clientele.”
