Each of our facilities is clean and well-organized to promote the safe and on-time production, assembly and delivery of food, beverages, and complementary items for onboard service.
Our full-service facilities offer customers a wide array of food and beverage options, generally with hot and cold food production capabilities and excellent flexibility and capacity to handle numerous ad-hoc needs, ranging from full-scale charter flight requests to last-minute additional meals for an increased passenger count on scheduled flights.
The majority of our kitchens also have conference space to provide a comfortable venue for collaborative customer meetings, menu presentations, and other affairs requiring showrooms. Some of our hub locations have also been used for high-profile presentations attended by government officials and dignitaries, as well as members of the media.
At our full-service facilities, our teams also handle packing and provisioning of non-food items, such as cutlery, headphones, amenity kits and comfort items, to name a few. And of course, what goes up must come down. Our facilities have a full complement of dishwashing and equipment processing areas, in addition to specified zones for proper handling of all trash and recycling in accordance with local and international regulations.
For those customers who offer an in-flight selection of pre-packaged food items, snacks and beverages, Gate Gourmet is ready to fulfill this need with our asset-light option. Our dedicated teams at these “commissary” facilities daily handle numerous services including:
- Assembling soda drawers
- Packing silverware
- Building liquor and/or beer kits
- Provisioning packaged food and beverage items
- Providing dry supply uplift (napkins, cups, sugar etc.)
Some of these locations even perform additional services, such as aircraft cabin cleaning.
