Saudi Arabian Airlines’ catering service has announced that it served more than 15 million meals in the first nine months of 2005. The airline’s catering division is reported to have had a great impact on the local market, as it purchases over 80% of its material from the Saudi market. “The catering division witnessed a 12% increase in the level of meal production in all of its four local units [Jeddah, Riyadh, Madinah and Damman], as well as the international unit in Cairo,” said Shawgi Mushtaq, vice president catering, Saudi Arabian Airlines. He also added that the airline’s catering arm produced meals for 75,000 flights, including 11,000 flights for international carriers. In 2005, the catering division also received the HACEP International Award, given by Societe Generale de Surveillance, in recognition of the airline’s high food safety standards.
