“humanity is failing to stop the climate crisis. it’s now beyond urgent. the planet is screaming for help.”

At TAQA we’ve got values, and we make sure to translate them into real, tangible actions. We do not shy away from taking risks –in fact, we embrace it and use it as a way to do things differently.

We didn’t just stumble onto the “green” bandwagon and we’re not in it for the trend. No. We’re in for the long, sometimes difficult, haul. We believe that our planet’s health is directly related to our own –that’s why we make snacks that are both good for us and planet earth!

Palm-oil free means we do not contribute to the devastating deforestation happening as a direct result of palm oil production.

Palm-oil is major contributor of deforestation of some of the world’s rainforest, destroying the habitat of already endangered species.

mission sustainable!

TAQA Snacks are vegan, GMO-free, and Palm-oil free. Now let’s break that down, because its values are far more than nutrition only:

Being vegan means we’re not using any animal products, and animal products use enormous amounts of water resources.

800 Liters of Water One Liter of Cow Milk 4 Times Less One Liter of Soy Milk

We’re very conscious of every ingredient we use and every step of the snack-making process from importing to baking to packaging and delivering.

mission recycle!

We know that our packaging is part of the problem. We work steadily to change our business practices and share what we have learned. You may not know this, but truly “green” packaging still doesn’t exist. Anywhere.

Big companies are working on it, and we’re coming up with ideas too –look out for the reusable tin box of cookies we hope to launch soon, but the reality remains: good packaging is better for shelf life. We recognize that this is not enough, so we initiated regular bulk events at our facility where our customers can come with their own reusable boxes and jars to buy our snacks in BULK.

Today 30% of our packaging is recyclable including our family boxes, outer display boxes, and the master case which are corrugated boxes. We are also working on switching from a 3 layer film for our cookies to a single film.

We’re doing what we can, constantly finding new solutions to reduce our packaging waste beyond recycling, hoping to get there soon.

mission offset

We are very proud to be the first company in the Middle East to have conducted a 9 months study to determine the amount of CO2 footprint we emit: from transportation of our employees, to the impact of distributing our products, as well as the journey that some of our ingredients have to make (our dark chocolate comes all the way from Guatemala!).

But with real numbers in hand, we know exactly how much we need to offset (and we’re setting a real plan to make that happen!). So although we are not carbon positive yet, we are working on becoming carbon neutral in 2022.

mission awareness

TAQA does a lot more than bake delicious snacks. Unveiling the ugly truth behind how humanity has destroyed our environment with our consumerist mentality is part of our mission. And because change always starts from within, we begin with our own team. We take hikes together regularly, so we can all learn about nature from nature itself, and we apply those lessons in our daily lives and in our work at the bakery.

We’ve also organized a series of Taqa Talks with athletes and sports enthusiasts with a variety of different interests to discuss the athletic and environmental challenges we face in the region.

We’re committed to producing short films that focus on specific environmental issues to help spread awareness and understanding.

And finally, we love sponsoring outdoor athletic events, and taking part in them too!

Anything we can do, we do, because the truth is, we’re all in this together. We all live under the same sky.

mission transparency

There’s a lot of “greenwashing” out there. With consumers more aware than ever about what they choose to buy, some brands tend to brag about their positive actions while simultaneously hiding the negative, sometimes devastating impact their business has on the environment.

We are firmly committed to being completely honest and transparent about what we are doing, what we’re aiming to do, and what we are not able to do yet. Because even if we’re not perfect, we want our customers to know our shortcomings, and how we plan to address them. This isn’t a marketing thing for us. It’s about owning up to the truth and spreading environmental awareness. The more consumers know the reality, the better they can choose.
