Onboard Hospitality - - Industry Update -

LSG Sky Chefs has teamed up with Air New Zealand and the New Zealand Min­istry for Pri­mary In­dus­tries (MPI) to tackle in­flight waste from Air New Zealand's in­ter­na­tional ser­vices ar­riv­ing in Auck­land.

The waste re­duc­tion ini­tia­tive, Project Green, is ex­pected to di­vert 150 tonnes of waste from land­fill an­nu­ally. It has al­ready en­abled 40 Air New Zealand in­flight prod­ucts pre­vi­ously sent to land­fill (due to biose­cu­rity con­trols) to be re­clas­si­fied so that they can be reused on fu­ture flights if re­moved from air­craft sealed and un­touched.

Prod­ucts ap­proved to date in­clude sealed bev­er­ages and un­opened snacks with fur­ther items ex­pected to be added in com­ing months.

LSG Sky Chefs New Zealand gen­eral man­ager Pi­eter Hart­ing says: “This project has been an ex­cit­ing jour­ney for us, re­quir­ing a big cul­ture shift and get­ting our peo­ple on­board with new ways of work­ing.”
