Deliveroo, alongside six other UAE companies have partnered with The Catalyst of Growth to launch ‘Home in a Bite’ bringing Lebanon’s most-loved homegrown concepts to Dubai
A first-of-its-kind project, #Homeinabite brings Lebanese homegrown eatery brands to the UAE with the aim of supporting restaurateurs and their F&B businesses, as well as to provide the Lebanese community in the UAE with a sumptuous slice of home.
The tragic explosion that shook Lebanon in August 2020 disrupted the lives of citizens overnight. Despite the outpour of support from far and wide, there still remains a lot to be done. And this is particularly true with homegrown F&B concepts in Beirut. With the objective to assist in the recovery and help in their growth, Deliveroo has rolled out the first batch of restaurants on its platform. The selection is expected to grow over the coming months.
For some of you, these will bring back memories and nostalgia. For the others, this is an exciting way to try out Lebanese favourites.
