OneRare Expands into a New Territory

OneRare, the World’s First Food Metaverse is making a debut in the Middle East with its latest partnerships. With its growing presence worldwide, the foodverse is inviting food brands to enter the world of NFTs & gaming with the help of metaverse.

The Food Metaverse Company is announcing a slew of partnerships in UAE. The Bhukkad Cafe, Cali Poke, Art of Dum, China Bistro, India Bistro, & Glocal Junction,& Papa Johns have collaborated with OneRare to launch their NFTs in the Foodverse.

The excitement around this news is shared by technologists & foodpreneurs globally. Many publications highlighted the significance of this launch.

The Idea Behind The OneRare Foodverse

OneRare’s Founders developed the platform while in lockdown. Co-Founder, Supreet Raju stated that “I have long said that food has a language of its own and makes the world a happier place. It is what connects us and the metaverse only brings us closer together in a unique way in which we can share our culture and our food. Now with the launch of the foodverse, there is no reason why brands and consumers can’t come together in this safe, virtual setting.”

The Foodverse created by OneRare comprises various zones that enable users to explore Celebrity Chefs, Food Brands, and Virtual Restaurants. Similar to the real world, the Foodverse encompasses different geographical areas like the beach, forest, and lakeside, and allows users to freely navigate the open world. Additionally, there is an exclusive Gaming zone where players can discover, earn, collect, and battle.

OneRare also permits users to claim Dish NFTs from around the globe by collecting Ingredients and following Recipes to produce exclusive NFT artworks. These dishes include international cuisines, festive specials, keto, and vegan-friendly recipes, as well as signature recipes from celebrity chefs and restaurants.

After its initial launch and the overwhelming interest it received, our Co-Founders Gaurav Gupta and Supreet Raju expanded their vision by introducing the first full-service food metaverse featuring in-world games, chef and brand partnerships, and exchanges of virtual assets for real-world utility.
