BOCA SUSTAINABILITY AT HEART
Tucked away in the heart of Dubai’s financial district, BOCA is a Modern European restaurant influenced by Spanish cuisine and with a strong commitment to sustainability and local sourcing.
In addition to sourcing ingredients locally and supporting local farmers and fishermen, BOCA has stepped up efforts to reduce waste with the help of its own Waste Officer. The restaurant continuously audits kitchen and bar operations, refuses single use plastic from suppliers and to customers, operates a demand-driven inventory, and prefers working with like-minded partners across the value chain. In its location in DIFC, Dubai, BOCA runs on 100% renewable energy and has just published its first carbon emissions report detailing its impact on the environment.
BOCA is Gault&Millau 2022 UAE “Sustainable Kitchen of the Year”. Gault&Millau is one of the world’s most respected independent restaurant reviewers. The restaurant has also been recently featured on the 50Best Discovery.
