About this Book
The provision of safe food to airline passengers is now a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. As the aviation industry continues to grow year on year, so do passenger food service expectations, with increasing demand for wider choice and greater quality. Often neglected and under-regulated, food safety should be of paramount importance amid this growth.
The consequences of in-flight food poisoning are extremely serious not only for the passengers involved, but also for the crew associated safety of the aircraft, and ultimately the airline's reputation.
In this much needed book Erica Sheward makes a compelling case for better management of food safety for all aspects of the aircraft food supply chain with comprehensive coverage of:
- Codes of practice
- Supply chain logistics
- Fitness to fly
- Managing aircraft water safety
- Liability issues
- Food Security
Manufacturers and suppliers of products to the airline catering industry, business aviation caterers, airline Quality Assurance and hygiene personnel, product development managers, food safety regulators, aviation safety and security regulators, decision makers and company executives in any area of aviation as well as lecturers and students in all areas of the hospitality and travel sectors will find this book a vital tool.
