LSG Sky Chefs pivots in New Zealand

LSG Sky Chefs has joined forces with New Zealand retailers New World and PAK’nSAVE to offer a new suite of in-store ready-to-heat meals for customers.

There are six meals on offer, made fresh daily at LSG Sky Chefs facilities in South Auckland including five meat options and one vegetarian one.

“With international travel limited for the foreseeable future, vendors who supply and work with the aviation industry are experiencing a marked decrease in demand. We saw a natural opportunity to combine New World and PAK’nSAVE’s needs to deliver ad hoc convenient meals for customers, and LSG Sky Chefs expertise in curating ready-to-heat restaurant quality meals, to provide a unique meal solution that’s affordable, quick and delicious,” said Rebecca Tuhakaraina, head of delicatessen for Foodstuffs North Island.

Bilal Ozturk, sales and services director, New Zealand & Pacific, LSG Group added: “Our partnership with New World and PAK’nSAVE means we can continue to employ a small team of employees during this transitionary period for the aviation industry. The ready-to-heat meals are fresh, tasty, convenient and most importantly, affordable. Customers will love the variety of flavours the meals have, which are prepared fresh daily by our team of trained chefs who have experience preparing meals for families and individuals around the world.”
