Gate Gourmet Australia:
Gate Gourmet Green Dry Ice Project
Gate Gourmet is a global provider of meals for airlines and airport lounges. In
Australia the company prepares more than 15,000 meals a day at its main catering
facility in Mascot. In an innovative move to increase the duration and quality of cooling
and reduce greenhouse emissions from freezing, transport and evaporation of dry ice,
Gate Gourmet Australia partnered with a local research and design company to trial a
new synthetic cooling product called Ecoslice as a replacement.
The trials, thought to be the first of their kind in the global on-board catering market,
have been highly successful. The product is cost-effective, greenhouse-friendly and
safer to use in the confined space of a catering cooler. Gate Gourmet is hoping to
roll out the product throughout Australia later in 2018.
