LinkedIn +

Qatar Aircraft Catering Company (QACC) has launched a collaboration with local charity Hifz Al Naema, to redistribute surplus food and beverages.

QACC and Hifz Al Naema expect to redistribute 200-300kg of food and beverage a day, including whole fruits, cereals, soft drinks, yoghurt and chocolates.

Launched in August 2002, QACC provides in-flight catering for Qatar Airways, as well as for international airlines, hub lounges, Amiri and ad hoc VVIP flights using Hamad International Airport (HIA). Spanning 69,000m2 (742,710ft2), QACC has one of the world’s largest self-contained catering facilities.

“We are delighted to partner with Hifz Al Naema. At QACC, we are continuously looking at ways to reduce waste and ensure an optimal food and beverage service to all our clients. This partnership ensures any unserved meals or unopened items will be redistributed to support those in need in our local community and reduce wastage at landfills,” said Michael Winner, QACC senior vice president.
