The celebrity couple‘s vision is in alignment with Blue Tribe, the plant-based meat pioneer in the Indian ecosystem, working vigorously on the mission to reinvent meat-consuming methods.

Speaking about what propelled her to take this initiative, Anushka Sharma said, “Virat and I have always been animal lovers. It’s been years since we decided to adopt a meat-free lifestyle. The collaboration with Blue Tribe is a step to tell people how they can be more conscious and leave less impact on the planet by switching to a plant-based diet. We hope that more people would like to understand the need for it and thus, help the planet and the life in it.”
“At the end of the day, I’m a foodie too. I want to enjoy the kind of food I love without leaving a huge carbon footprint. I know a lot of people feel the same way. This is why I believe if we can have a lower dependence on meat, without shortchanging our taste buds, there is potential for a planet-changing impact. This is where Blue Tribe is proving to be a gamechanger, striking a perfect balance between food that’s really tasty AND good for the planet.” Virat Kohli added.
Commenting on the inspiration behind creating a brand that is potentially the future of food, Sandeep Singh (Co-founder, Blue Tribe) said, “The real problem our environment faces today is that everyone thinks its protection is someone else’s problem! Nonetheless, our products aim at non-vegetarian eaters who want to switch to healthier, environment-friendly products without compromising the taste of their favorite dishes. Our food experts and scientists have been successful in identifying what gives meat its unique taste and texture, and so our products will taste, look, feel and cook exactly like meat.”
“In India, over 60% of the people are non-vegetarian, and most people have no idea about the negative effects it has on the planet. The good thing is that we are becoming aware of what we eat, and we are grateful to Anushka and Virat for supporting Blue Tribe and spreading this message further.” He added.
