Market leaders unite in common cause
Leading airline caterers dnata, DO & CO, gategroup, the LSG Group and Newrest have come together to launch the Airline Catering Association (ACA).
A non-profit organisation, ACA will represent the common interests of the airline catering industry, addressing matters such as food, health and safety, environmental concerns, taxation and global regulations.
Each member company is represented by its ceo or executive board member, with Erdmann Rauer, ceo of the LSG Group, the first president.
The launch of the Brussels-based association has been welcomed by US-based trade body IFSA. Joe Leader, ceo, commented: "IFSA applauds the executive-level participation of the giants of airline catering within the ACA as it advances the industry’s mission, and we welcome the opportunity to work with the association to further advance those common goals".
