Mira Naaman is the concept creator and chef behind Nectar. This London trained chef honed her culinary skills in the restaurant world before co-founding a homegrown juice bar concept and healthy eatery. Mira’s passion was to offer an accessible range of functional “grab-and-go” options which are made daily from scratch, in small batches with a particular focus on farm-to-table ingredients. Smoothies and juices are all made to order and feature a range of customizable super-foods and nutritious boosters.

As a mother of three young children, Mira also recognized the importance of accessible, healthy snacks for children at school. This led to a second Nectar location opening on the campus of the American Community School of Abu Dhabi. Students and faculty now have access to Nectars range of tasty-yet-nutritious snacks and drinks to fuel their days with the right types of energizing foods and ingredients.

Mira also creates the menus for and co-hosts the “Wellness Series” events. These intimate events feature a series of wellness talks and discussions along with a bespoke menu showcasing the latest creative cooking techniques, trends and ingredients. Mira also holds food demonstrations on a range of topics like plant-based meals, grain and refined-sugar-free alternatives etc.
