“Pantry is a very small online family business run by two full-time working siblings that are passionate about promoting a healthy lifestyle. Our aim is to provide the residents of Qatar products that are either not available or not easily found in the country, whilst simultaneously trying to make a difference in our world; we try to pay it forward, as well as use recyclable and eco-friendly products as much as we can.
We are passionate about providing our society with eco-friendly, non-toxic and overall healthy options. Organic is our main theme here, but we also do sell a small range of non-organic alternatives that are also suitable for gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and raw lifestyles.
Our aim is to give back to society and to the world as much as we can. This is why we have chosen to donate 30% of all our profits to charities, focusing on those that provide nutrition and education to people in need.”
