Organic Foods and Café to celebrate its 9th anniversary with weekend of festivities

Organic Foods & Café, the region’s first organic and Demeter-certified biodynamic supermarket chain, is celebrating its ninth year of operation in April 2014. The supermarket is planning a weekend of fun activities for all the family on April 25 and 26, which will take place across the supermarket’s Sheikh Zayed Road and The Village outlets.

Customers can take advantage of free giveaways and special discounts throughout the store and café over the anniversary weekend, plus free Sunblast juice pouches for every child and vouchers for complimentary coffee and cupcakes. There’s also a lucky dip with great prizes, nutrition workshops for kids and the chance to try out the café’s brand new soft-serve organic ice cream (available at Sheikh Zayed Road on April 25 and The Village on April 26).

“We’re very proud to be celebrating our ninth year at Organic Foods & Café,” said Nils El Accad, the brand’s founder and CEO. “I set out with a simple vision – to bring good quality, organic produce to customers here in the UAE, with a focus on nutritional value rather than profits. Nearly a decade later, we’re the biggest organics supplier in the region, not to mention the only Demeter-certified biodynamic retailer. We will continue to act as a pioneer in the industry and educate consumers about the importance of an organic lifestyle, both in terms of their family’s health, and the impact we have on the planet,” Nils added.

The brand, which first opened its doors in Satwa in 2005, now operates three popular stores in Dubai (Sheikh Zayed Road, The Greens and The Village, Jumeira), with further stores in Abu Dhabi and Bahrain, and another due to open on the Abu Dhabi corniche by June 2014. The company also offers a comprehensive online store and delivery service for organic produce, household items, beauty and bodycare across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Muscat.
