Unilever steps up its travel connections

April 1, 2020

Food giant, Unilever has upped its focus on the airline market with the appointment of Lucy Stowell as global key account manager for airlines.

With over a decade of experience in the airline industry, Stowell has moved to Unilever Food Solutions, the B2B foods division of Unilever, from Monty’s Bakehouse, and is now leading the development of global relationships within the airline sector.

Working with brands such as the Vegetarian Butcher (pictured), Pukka Tea and Knorr, Stowell, as the global point of contact for airlines and airline caterers, is responsible for working with Unilever’s customers on initiatives such as Knorr Future 50 Foods and Fair Kitchens whilst also demonstrating the benefits of working with the global business and its ‘brands with purpose.’

Stowell says: “Unilever is currently focused on making sustainable living commonplace, and has many long-standing partnerships with the travel industry. We keep ahead of the trends and know that sustainable options have never been in higher demand than today. At this year’s WTCE, we were planning to showcase two of our newest brands: The Vegetarian Butcher and Pukka Tea. Both put purpose first and provide sustainable products that are better for people and the planet. They complement Unilever Food Solutions’ well-established portfolio of sauces, soups, bouillons and dressings very well.”

The Vegetarian Butcher has the goal become the biggest butcher in the world but with one big difference – to provide meat without the animal. It offers a wide range of plant-based options including NoBeef Burgers, NoChicken Chunks and NoMince. Pukka Tea is all about wellbeing with teas for every time of day in its extensive range is 100% organic and fair for life certified.
