The airline will be sourcing fresh organic produce daily from the farm that would include fresh eggs, vegetables and honey.

Etihad will soon launch the farm-to-table concept across all cabin classes.

The Abu Dhabi Organics Farms was established in 1997 by Khalid Al Shamsi, a UAE national passionate about organic living.

Built on more than 55 hectares of land, the farm features greenhouses and fields and grows a wide range of vegetables and fruits from around the world. It also raises livestock such as camels, cows, chickens and goats.

The farm also offers daily field trips to educate children on the importance of natural organic food, sustainability and recycling. It helps children experience first-hand how a desert has been turned into fertile land.

The Abu Dhabi Organics Farms works with the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the UN.
