Emirates Flight Catering is expanding its facility in order to serve more meals. The company currently produces up to 220,000 meals per day and once the new facility, located in Dubai begins operating, that number will increase to 360,000.
“The biggest challenge we had at the facility was space; we simply didn’t have enough. So we are building a similar facility like this one next door which we expect to be opened next year and which will enable us to produce 360,000 meals per day. That will probably be enough until the year 2025,” said Robert Paulus, Senior Airline Store Manager.
Paulus further stated that on a quiet day the catering facility puts out 190,000 meals per day, when it gets busy it can stretch that to 220,000 meals per day. Half of the meals that are put out are made in house, fresh. The other half are deep frozen meals which are only served in economy class.
“The first and business class passengers always get fresh in-house. We get a lot of questions about preservatives. We don’t use preservatives at all, the only thing that we will use to enhance the way food looks is lemon juice. The deep frozen meals which are also made by us are processed in a different facility,” Paulus also pointed out.
A new airport is also under construction in Dubai which might lead the catering facility relocate.
“There is a new airport in Dubai and yes Emirates will also move there but right now there are no fixed plans yet, so we are focusing on the current expansion and attempting to keep up with the growth of demand,” Paulus said.
A majority of food items used by the catering company are imported from different countries across the world.
“In principle all the food we buy is imported as there is no farming here. If you look at beef for example, it will come from Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the US and South America, wine is also imported from countries like Australia and China. We don’t limit the area where we purchase goods based on geography,” Paulus said. He further noted that the company also utilizes imported flowers from East African countries such as Ethiopia and Kenya.
