Costa Coffee UAE & Agritech Farm Bustanica Sign Partnership

by Madaline Dunn

Costa Coffee and agritech farm Bustanica have announced the signing of a partnership, whereby all Costa grab-and-go salads will incorporate Bustanica’s locally grown lettuce.

Bustanica, a subsidiary of Emirates Flight Catering, is the world’s largest indoor vertical farm, located in Dubai, UAE. It utilises hydroponic technology, which enables fresh lettuce to be grown all year round while using 95 per cent less water than traditional farming.

According to the company, this means every container of salad from Costa Coffee helps save over 20 litres of water.

“Our partnership with Bustanica reflects our dedication to sustainability and our support for local businesses,” said Tyrone Reid, Group Chief Executive Officer of MMI & Emirates Leisure Retail, Costa Coffee’s international franchise partner.

“This marks a significant step in our goal to not only offer great food but also to contribute positively to the environment and our communities.”

Feras Al Soufi, General Manager at Bustanica, commented: “We are thrilled to introduce Bustanica’s top-quality lettuce to Costa Coffee’s menu. Our mission at Bustanica is to make healthy, fresh, and nutritious produce accessible to all. This partnership brings us one step closer to that aim, enabling us to offer easy, healthy choices to Costa Coffee’s customers throughout the UAE.”
