SSP Group is announcing new contracts with Swedavia. The announcement states that ten food and beverage units will be opening at airports in Sweden.

In Stockholm Arlanda, four new units of artisan bakery, Gateau will open. Its menu has been adapted to the airport environment, the release says, noting that "the expanded range of fresh sandwiches and coffee options" will "appeal to a wide range of tastes" and that "guests will be able to enjoy a final ‘fika’ (‘coffee break’) before their flights." The new Gateau units will open in Stockholm Arlanda Airport at Sky City, T5 Market Place, T2, and T5 Pier F.

“We know that passengers want to have truly local experiences as they travel and these new concepts and brilliant brand partnerships give them a genuine opportunity to engage with Swedish food and drink culture," said Björn Olsson, managing director at SSP Sweden, in the release.

Other new units at Luleå Airportunit include:

  • Cornelius Coffee
  • Craft n’ Draft
  • A hybrid retail concept, KIOSK

Charlotte Ljunggren, Chief Commercial Officer at Swedavia, said in the release: “It’s important for us to offer a selection of food options at different price points, and our ambition is always to offer both high quality and value for money. We also want to spotlight the Swedish coffee culture – fika – and Gateau can positively contribute to this aspiration.”

"At Malmö Airport, SSP will open Husman, which delivers a quality food experience with a specific focus on Swedish ‘husmanskost’ (traditional, home-cooked Swedish food) and Bistro & Bar, which will offer casual dining influenced by popular international and local flavours. Swedish coffee concept Fika & KIOSK will also be brought to Malmö Airport," the release states.

The new units will offer vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options and "utilize local and recycled materials wherever possible," the release notes, which align "with SSP and Swedavia’s wider sustainability goals."
