Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Al Saud has confirmed that his vegan menu project Folia is coming to the UAE this year.
The Saudi royal has partnered with American chef Matthew Kenney to bring a range of plant-based meals to Four Seasons hotels in California and Bahrain, and Dubai is next on the list, he told The National.
It will be launched at the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach and the Four Seasons DIFC on World Vegan Day, November 1.
Prince Khaled, founder and chief executive of KBW Ventures, is an outspoken vegan and his investment company has bought into the likes of Beyond Meat.
While Folia is a vegan menu, Prince Khaled told The National that Folia is "not meant for a specific subset of customers. It is meant for everyone who wants a culinary experience without the negative impact that eating out so often comes with."
