Concessionaire Lagardère Travel Retail has partnered with SumoSalad to open a new dining/retail concept in the redeveloped food court in Terminal 2 (T2) at Sydney Airport in Australia.
The SumoSalad Green Label outlet provides passengers with a number of healthy dining choices such as responsibly sourced salmon and free-range chicken dishes, as well as a Chobani Yogurt bar and cold-press juices. Travelers can also pick up healthy gifts such as honey from the Urban Beehive collection and almond milk from the Inside Out Nutritious Goods section. The agreement will see further outlets open throughout Australia and New Zealand in the coming years due to Lagardère’s presence in more than 700 food service outlets across 60 airports and 100 railways stations.
Matthieu Mercier, CEO of Lagardère Travel Retail for the Pacific region, said, “Partnering with SumoSalad, such a strong brand and leader in one of the fastest-growing sub-categories in food service, is exciting for us and will assist us in forming a cornerstone for our business strategy to increase our food service footprint.”
Luke Baylis, CEO and co-founder of SumoSalad, said, “A partnership with a leader like Lagardère Travel Retail is a great step into the travel sector. Australian food choices have changed hugely since we opened our first Sumo store 12 years ago, and for the better. Healthy eating is the world’s fastest-growing food market trend, and I’m proud to say SumoSalad is the passionate and established leader in this segment. Our Green Label really is the next generation of SumoSalad.”
