Halal bakery products
Classic City Bakeries now offers Halal certified dinner rolls, ciabatta and sandwich breads, meeting the growing demand for Halal options in the US. They are specially created for airline catering and handling conditions. Dinner rolls can be individually wrapped, packed into assortments or bulk packed. Can also be packed into ovenable films for heating in aircraft ovens. The company tells PAX International it partners with its network of bakeries to provide the best bread product in every category – no headache, no hassles, just exceptional baked goods.

Mediterranean manufacturers
New Leaf Trading works with Mediterranean manufacturers to source marinated vegetables, semi- and sundried tomatoes, a host of pepper products and the classic Mediterranean olive. These ingredients are key for “house” recipes, explains the company. New Leaf Trading also sources dairy, European cheeses, charcuterie products, and a full range of antipasti items. “We aim to provide traditional products, with traditional relationships whilst always adding First Class flavors,” the company tells PAX International.

Cashews with a story
Snackbox To Go’s cashew snacks are the result of a project with Mozambique-based Sunshine Nut Co. Ninety percent of profit goes back to the community where the cashews are harvested. The nuts are roasted and packed into airtight bags to preserve freshness and taste. Available in four flavors. Three-year shelf life. Fifteen-gram bag for complimentary snack and 30-gram bag for buy-on-board.

Hand cooked crisps
Award-winning Kent Crisps are hand cooked, made using British potatoes and real ingredients to give a unique twist on the nation’s favorite flavors. The packaging pays homage to British landscapes and landmarks. Seven flavors available in 40-gram size and selected flavors in convenient 30-gram size. Contact airline distributor partner McGuire & Associates for more info.

Ovenable branded packaging
Snackbox To Go is introducing sustainable branded packaging for pastries and sandwiches. The ovenable film eliminates the long wait for outsourced packaging which has experienced delays due to COVID. “And, it has a great design,” adds Kees Verschuure, Sales Director at Snackbox.

Alton Towers theme park
In 2021 two bottles of Radnor Splash were sold every second, Radnor Hills tells PAX International, adding that Radnor Splash has always been one of the “hero brands.” This year the company has entered a partnership with UK theme parks Alton Towers, including an on-pack promotion of two-for-one entry on tickets with the purchase of any Radnor Splash flavored 24-pack.

Group SOI is introducing organic herbal teas for First and Business Class. The caffeine-free teas are available in five blends, in 20-gram, 30-gram, 60-gram and 100-gram packages of organic paper bags. The teas are designed to be served in teapots with infusers.
