Catering and services innovations to be showcased at WTCE 2022


The organisers of WTCE (World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo) have put together a list of highlights expected to be on show at the event next week (14-16 June at Hamburg Messe in Germany). Due to the pandemic it has been three years since the last live event, during which time businesses have invested a great deal in R&D to come up with new innovations. A selection of these innovations will be showcased in the What’s New Onboard feature, located at the entrance to the event.

These innovations include:

Tops Foods: Tops Foods will be presenting an ambient hot meal range, developed using a variety of vegan, lactose and gluten-free recipes. All the meals are created using a microwave technology that doesn’t involve water or boiling to process the food (stand 1B54).

The Hotbox combines sweet and savoury snacks in a sustainable oven-proof box, while the Snack Pack is a cold, light meal in a hygienic, space-efficient package that helps maximise galley space (stand 1C20).

Isovation: This French manufacturer of thermoproof packaging will be highlighting a lightweight, foldable packaging designed to transport ice cubes, ice cream and meals on long-haul flights (stand 1F61).

Cocktail House: This ready-to-drink cocktail company, will be showing its range of Spirito cocktails. Featuring popular classics including Negroni, Cosmopolitan and Mojito, the cocktails come in practical single-serving pouches and can be simply poured over a glass with ice (stand 1B61).

Polly Magraw, event director for WTCE commented, “Companies have been working extremely hard over the past few years – despite the constraints of the Covid pandemic – to come up with exciting new products that will add a crucial point of difference to airlines, while simultaneously addressing environmental concerns. We are very much looking forward to finding out more about these ground-breaking launches.”
