World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) is set to welcome over 70 new exhibitors when it returns to the Hamburg Messe on 14-16 June 2022.
From new on-trend food and drink products to revolutionary hygiene items and sustainable solutions, this year’s expo aims to position itself as a true centre of innovation.
The focus will be on helping the world’s airlines and rail companies recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, and new exhibitors will hope to spark inspiration for onboard buyers rebuilding their passenger experience.
Among those new to the mix will be Curatif, a dynamic Australian start-up, producing a premium ready-to-serve cocktail range which can either be enjoyed in a glass or straight from the can. Focused on quality, convenience and sustainability the range includes Archie Rose Espresso Martini, Plantation Rum Hurricane and Trader Vic’s Mai Tai.
Stokes Sauces will turn the spotlight on premium sauces, chutneys, relishes, mayonnaises, dressings and conserves including Bloody Mary Tomato Ketchup, Red Onion Marmalade and Fig Relish; while For Aisha will put forward its pre-prepared children’s food products which are all Sugarwise and dietitian approved as well as being Halal. Recipes include Authentic Indian Chicken & Sweet Potato Curry, Moroccan Chicken Tagine and Jamaican Jerk Chicken.
Supporting initiatives to reduce single-use plastic consumption (and the green-washed biodegradable options) Incredible Spoons will bring its range of edible cutlery to WTCE this year. The spoons, sporks, straws and chopsticks in the range are all-natural, vegan, non-GMO, protein rich and most impressively, they are 100% edible. The cutlery stays firm for up to 25 minutes in hot soup and up to 45 minutes in cold desserts, and also comes in a variety of flavours such as chocolate, vanilla, black pepper, oregano chilli and plain.
At the luxury end of the scale Aurezzi’s is looking to upgrade the elegance and aesthetic of oral hygeine with toothbrushes plated with 24K gold and toothpaste with whitening properties said to add a real point of difference to the first class offering.
