- London-based restaurant Farmacy, a pioneering, plant-based concept, will pop up during COP28 – the 28th iteration of the UN Climate Conference – from 30 November to 6 December.
- Farmacy will bring its unique vision to the prestigious Goals House in Alserkal Avenue, whilst launching a new book, the Farmacy Manifesto on the Future of Food. As part of its expansion to the region with the view to opening permanent sites across the Middle East, this marks a significant milestone for Farmacy.
- Farmacy was founded by Camilla Fayed, a food activist and entrepreneur, in 2016. Its flagship restaurant in Notting Hill, London, is a destination recognised for its approachable take on nutrient-dense, organic and plant-based food.
- During COP28, the Farmacy Manifesto on the Future of Food – a collaboration between researchers, artists and writers – will be launched, available to purchase at leading concept store, GEORGES of Dubai. Farmacy’s ambitious new book is a pocket-sized tour de force through the interconnected topics of soil ecology, industrial agriculture, the medicinal qualities of food, the gut-brain axis and regeneration, charting a bold path towards the renewal of our civilization.
- Farmacy has been invited to bring its food concept to Goals House, Alserkal Avenue at COP28. Farmacy has partnered with Watermelon Market, an up-and-coming, UAE-based sustainable sourcing platform, to serve local and organic food at the pop-up.
- Farmacy will host activist and scholar Dr Vandana Shiva at COP28 for World Soil Day (5 December) as part of Farmacy’s campaign to ensure food, agriculture and soil are at the forefront of the climate conversation. Taking place in the midst of COP28, World Soil Day 2023 is a celebration that seeks to bring humanity’s focus to the most fascinating and essential ecosystem on Earth — the soil.
