LSG Group plans catering overhaul of TGV Swiss service
The LSG Group has acquired a new catering customer: TGV Lyria, a train service that connects Paris with Geneva, Lausanne, Basel, Bern and Zurich.
The LSG Group will take over the existing service concept by the end of this summer. The second phase will take place by the end of this year and will entail the introduction of a new concept that will be characterized by the “Swissness” and the “Frenchness” of the products offered onboard, said the caterer.
“This customer win reconfirms our decision to make train services part of LSG’s core businesses and growth areas in Europe,” said Lars Redeligx, Chief Commercial Officer Europe at LSG Group, in today’s announcement. “Our success is based on an in-depth understanding by our team of what the train operator and passengers expect and need. Our new concept itself is outstanding, innovative, customized and meets the targeted cost structure.”
In the train sector, the LSG Group will provide procurement and supply chain, assembly and logistics, meal production, last-mile and onboard retail.
LSG Group currently services iDTGV in France, Eurostar and Thalys in Belgium, Deutsche Bahn (Intercity 2) in Germany, Snälltaget in Sweden, Virgin in the United Kingdom and L-Exspresis in Latvia.
