British Airways caterer considers all-halal menu
by Robeel Haq on Sep 13, 2010
GateGourmet, the in-flight caterer for all long-haul British Airways flights from London Heathrow airport, has announced plans to make the majority of its meals halal.
The decision has been proposed to reduce costs and increase profits for the company, with a potential boost in demand from Middle Eastern and Asian airlines.
At present, most airlines will provide a halal option, although the meals are prepared, stored and transportation separately to comply with Muslim dietery rules.
“My aim is to make our large hub operations halal compliant,” said Guy Dubois from GateGroup. “If I produce everything according to halal standards, I will reduce complexity and increase cost effectiveness.”
The catering firm prepares more than 200million meals a year from its 100 flight kitchens in more than 25 countries. It is about to open a dedicated halal kitchen at Heathrow – where meals are prepared for 14 airlines including BA, reported the Daily Mail. The specialist kitchen will be smaller than the main kitchen that already exists at the airport, but could be the first stage in a gradual switch.
The move follows the sharp growth of carriers such as Emirates and Etihad, which require all meals to be halal.
But GateGourmet caters for numerous airlines from non-Muslim countries, which would also be affected by the changes. British Airways played down the significance of the catering firm’s proposals.
“British Airways has no plans to change its current menus or halal meal process,” a spokesperson told the British newspaper.
