SWISS extends Gate Gourmet contract

By PAX International

Gate Gourmet services SWISS out of Zurich and Geneva

Gate Gourmet announced today it has signed a new contract with Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) that extends their relationship to 2022.

Gate Gourmet and SWISS introduced the award-winning SWISS Taste of Switzerland concept where top chefs create seasonal dishes from across the Swiss regions for First and Business Class guests. Menus are updated every three months.

The two companies worked alongside the guest chefs to create dishes that taste the same in flight as they do when served in a gourmet restaurant. Because of this attention to detail, the "International Travel Catering Association" awarded the SWISS Taste of Switzerland concept its Mercury Award.

Gate Gourmet will continue to design and develop meals for SWISS' First, Business and Economy Classes on its 100+ international routes from Zurich and Geneva.

"We are very proud of our long-term relationship with the national carrier of our home country and we are delighted they have put their trust in us until 2022," said gategroup's CEO Xavier Rossinyol in a statement today. "Delivering a top-quality product across all classes, consistently, and showcasing the work of the country's talented chefs enables us maintain Swiss' reputation for delivering a top-notch customer experience."
