Stockwatch Daily - - FRONT PAGE - Mr. Rossen Dim­itrov re­ports

WESTJET AIR­LINES Ltd. has part­nered with fresh ca­sual res­tau­rant, The Chopped Leaf, in a move that will see the res­tau­rant’s whole-food of­fer­ings avail­able on board WestJet air­craft.

“WestJet and The Chopped Leaf have a com­mon goal to break down the ‘air­line food’ stigma,” said Rossen Dim­itrov, WestJet chief guest ex­pe­ri­ence of­fi­cer. “The in-

gre­di­ents in our new menu have been sourced to pro­vide health­ier op­tions with qual­ity and taste in mind. We con­tinue to evolve our on-board of­fer­ings to meet the needs of our 22 mil­lion an­nual guests.”

“WestJet val­ues are very sim­i­lar to ours at The Chopped Leaf,” said Nick Ve­loce, In­no­va­tive Food Brands Inc. pres­i­dent and chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer par­ent com­pany of The Chopped Leaf. “We want to en­sure our cus­tomers are de­lighted with their food ex­pe­ri­ence and take great ef­fort in mak­ing sure that each per­son who vis­its our lo­ca­tions leaves with a pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence. This part­ner­ship with WestJet is now per­fectly aligned to de­liv­er­ing on this wher­ever our cus­tomers are.”

In­gre­di­ents in The Chopped Leaf items are made from real food in­clud­ing whole grains, veg­eta­bles and meats that con­tain lit­tle to no preser­va­tives. Spe­cific menu items can be viewed in the on-board menu in seat pock­ets of WestJet flights. The Chopped Leaf meals will be ro­tated through­out the pre­pur­chase and buy-on-board menus as more prod­ucts and va­ri­ety are de­vel­oped.

WestJet will of­fer guests on more than 250 daily flights the abil­ity to pre­pur­chase or buy on board whole bowls, multi­grain sand­wiches and sal­ads. The Chopped Leaf prod­ucts will be avail­able for pur­chase on flights be­gin­ning Nov. 15, 2017, and pre­pur­chase is avail­able now for flights start­ing the same day.

In ad­di­tion to its part­ner­ship with The Chopped Leaf, as of Sept. 1, 2017 WestJet is now of­fer­ing pros­ecco and a se­lec­tion of in­ter­na­tional wines on board.
