Monty’s Bakehouse launches ‘low-touch’ food solutions

Monty’s Bakehouse has launched a new range of product and packaging concepts to support the airline industry in creating a safe and secure passenger experience post COVID-19.

The concepts have been developed in response to insights and research by the team and input from airline clients throughout the crisis. They build on and enhance the team’s established range of innovative products and sustainable packaging and focuses heavily on minimising interaction between the crew and passengers, as well as customer hygiene.

Passengers could potentially collect their own food and beverage offering either at the departure gate, on their seat or they can be offered by the cabin crew in a single movement.

One concept includes a ‘Snack in Pack’ solution which has a handle for practicality, a window panel and a secured tear strip which gaurantees safety, reassurance and hygiene for passengers. Another includes the half-sized tray box served by crew, sealed in a tamper-proof box with the option to slide a Monty’s Bakehouse hot component through the side of the tray before handing to passengers.

The caterer has also extended its product range with a new selection entree meals that can be dropped into many of the C-19 packaging concepts minimising crew-passenger handling.

Matt Crane, ceo, Monty’s Bakehouse, said “Throughout the C-19 crisis our offices have remained open and we have been working hard to look after our clients and our colleagues. The quiet period has allowed us to focus, innovate and design concepts for the post C-19 on board food and beverage services. Hygiene and safety are understandably high on everyone’s agenda and these new products which are available now provide a variety of solutions to meet every airlines need.”
