Enjoy Free Organic Coffee at Carrefour BIO this International Coffee Day

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 30 September, 2022: Carrefour, owned and operated by                      Majid Al Futtaim in the UAE, is celebrating International Coffee Day this October 1 by giving away organic coffee for free. The first 200 customers to Carrefour BIO in City Centre Me’aisem will be rewarded with a no-strings-attached beverage to enjoy in the retailer’s first café.

During their visit, customers can take advantage of a range of delicious blends and heirloom varieties from Ethiopia with floral, fruity, woody or sweet notes to choose from – all of which have been graded as excellent by the Specialty Coffee Association. Offering organic, vegan, and free-from categories to cater to all tastes, customers can opt for one of five healthy, plant-based milks.

Launched earlier this year, Carrefour BIO opened to promote conscious lifestyles in the UAE through a range of healthy and organic products spanning from food and beverages to beauty, personal, and home care items. The brand’s first sit-down dining concept offers all-day breakfast, delicious salads, fresh juices, and organic teas and coffees, as well as fan favourites from manakeesh to burgers with a plant-based twist.

The store aims at elevating retail sustainably with biodegradable packaging, eco-friendly, low-energy appliances and recycled wooden shelving, whilst supporting local small and medium enterprises. It also contains an innovative hydroponic farm to offset Carrefour’s carbon footprint and bolster food security, promoting locally grown produce and farm-to-table lifestyles.

Ramadan is a time for togetherness and reflection, and Homes r Us believes every home has a story to tell. In celebration of the Holy Month, the brand has put together a variety of ideas to help customers reflect on their style. In that spirit, the home décor and furniture brand launched its Ramadan 2023 collection. In this year’s collection, you’ll find ideas for hosting iftars and celebrations with friends and family for unforgettable memories. In the UAE, each home appears distinct, as a diverse array of traditions, customs, gatherings, and enriching stories breathe life into them. Every part of Ramadan reflects the identity of the people who live in these homes, from the food to the clothes to the gifts to even the furniture. There’s a solution for every home in the brand’s latest collection. With its minimalist design, soft hues, and textures, the “White Canvas” theme exudes serenity and tranquillity. The “Forest Forage” theme features carefully chosen accessories and furniture inspired by the earth and forest elements to bring nature into the home. Those with modern home designs can add a touch of contemporary elegance with the “Industrial Sleek” theme, blending contrasting textures and hues for a modern loft appeal. Homes r Us is also adding opulent lanterns and dinnerware to its dining collection, suitable for hosting lavish iftars. The brand is a one-stop shop for all Ramadan needs, enabling the idyllic setting for family stories. Homes r Us understands that different cultures celebrate Ramadan differently. That’s why the collection caters to all tastes and styles. With new stores opening in Fujairah and Jumeirah at 777 Mall, Homes r Us will soon expand its reach. There will also be a refreshed, more expansive store in the Arabian Centre. The newly opened stores will have an expanded portfolio of products while keeping the tastes of local customers in mind. To make shopping even more convenient, Homes r Us is offering free delivery and assembly on a minimum purchase of AED 1000 to its customers.
