Greenr Café, Delhi

In a one of its kind initiative, the Greenr Café has started using plant based meats which are a closer replacement of animal meat. Using textured proteins derived only from plants, with a combination of vegetables, nuts and seeds, the café has transitioned from more traditional alternatives such as tofu to newer and more innovative ones. The Greenr Café completely shuns the idea of processed food which contains preservatives and chemicals and has moved onto to healthier options. By using plant based foods such as Pea Pro, Bean Pro, Tofu Amarnath, Hemproot and Sweet Potato, the café attempts to completely switch out nutrients and textures of animal meat with these which are equally nutritious.
