ABOUT KEEPEATREAL

KeepEATreal is a nutrition and lifestyle consultancy established in 2015 to meet the growing demand from consumers for healthier food in the Middle East. We noticed that while there were many dietitians who offer one-on-one counseling, few do so at a business level. As the authority on nutrition and wellness, KeepEATreal supports the food, healthcare, hospitality, and education industries, working together to create healthier food initiatives for their customers, clients and students. We are based in Dubai, UAE, but work with clients, big and small, across the world. Our services include recipe development, marketing communications, nutrition analysis, food and health policy analysis and strategy development. Please see our services and projects pages to learn more about our work. 

PHILOSOPHY

KeepEATreal loves good food. It’s embedded in our culture; it’s entrenched in our family roots. Food is at the centre of every occasion, holiday and party in our homes. But we want to promote the benefits of healthy food; food that nourishes; food that boosts overall wellbeing. Most importantly, we want to show how eating healthy food should never compromise on taste.

OUR MISSION

  • Help improve the F&B industry to attain even higher standards of nutrition.
  • Support the food industry in providing nutritious options without compromising flavour.
  • Increase the demand for healthy and wholesome F&B.
  • Educate consumers by sharing information about the connection between food and nutrition-related diseases.
  • Empower communities to make smarter more informed food choices.
