Company Profile

  • Airline Deli Sandwiches and Hot Served Bakery Snacks

    Look West for Menu Inspiration

    To celebrate the trend for American style food has been gaining momentum, we have introduced a number of new additions to our range. Supplied in premium packaging they are designed for minimal actions on board – simply heat and serve.

    It’s time to start spreading the news about the first in the range – our new hot-serve “New York Deli Sandwich”, made with delicious authentic ingredients: Rye & Caraway bread with Emmental cheese, gherkins, pastrami and American Mustard

    The product features a crispy top and base and is pre-sliced to create a better eating experience.

  • Onboard Breakfast Meals, Ciabattas and Rolls

    Breakfast… Anytime

    The Out of Home Breakfast day part is growing and key global players including McDonalds and Starbucks are moving to introduce “All day Breakfast” offerings. To help airline caterers capitalise on this trend, the UK’s favourite breakfast-on-the-move item – the classic bacon roll – has been given the premium treatment from Green Gourmet…

    We’ve kept it simple for our new White Sourdough Bacon Ciabatta, which moves the bar higher for breakfast snacks. A white, stonebaked diamond roll made with French flour and a Poolish Sourdough recipe. Spread with unsalted butter and generously filled with three rashers of cooked unsmoked back bacon.

  • Gluten Free Airline Meals

    The Gluten Free Lifestyle

    Consumer demand for gluten free is more than just a medical need. Up to 7% of UK, US and Canadian population is believed to have a gluten allergy or intolerance. Whereas 22% now choose gluten free as a healthier diet choice. In fact, more than 10% of global food and drink launches in 2014 were gluten free.

    We’ve introduced a twist on our award winning Fish & Chips in a Box – a gluten free version.  The first of its kind for airline caterers.  Sustainably caught pollock fillet in our unique wheat and gluten free crispy batter, served with a portion of lightly seasoned golden chunky chips.

  • Green Gourmet launch new brand Source Foods.

    Green Gourmet has launched a new, consumer-facing lead brand for its travel and leisure product range. Introduced at the 2016 World Travel Catering Expo in Hamburg, Source Foods places the spotlight on the company’s strong flow of exciting new ideas and use of simple and authentic ingredients.

    Source Foods has been brought to life by a team of food experts that genuinely love to explore. The brand will be built on social media platforms; facebook, twitter and, in particular, Instagram to share experiences with both caterers and consumers.  Says Barry Jordan, marketing manager, Green Gourmet: “We wanted a name that encompassed our globally-inspired mix of menu classics and forward thinking products.”

    The Source Foods brand champions quality ingredients, thoughtfully and responsibly sourced. For instance, the new range of British Classics (another food trend Green Gourmet has identified) offers a pie and chunky chips which uses British beef with the Red Tractor accreditation, an assurance of quality which is independently verified. The fish and chips contain MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified fish and they were the first to apply this environmental standard to a consumer ready, pre-packaged onboard product.

    When it comes to packaging for the new Source Foods range, the flow wrapped products feature a new, recyclable premium PET film that is 40% lighter than the previous twin-ply material the company used.
