Singapore Airline starts providing freshest airline food

Published on : Friday, October 18, 2019

Singapore Airlines has started providing freshest airline food in the world.

 

It has introduced a new “farm-to-plane” menu on board in collaboration with the vertical farm company AeroFarms.

 

AeroFarms is supposed to grow lettuce baby green in a old steel mill in an industrial neighbourhood of Newark, five miles from the airport and all the mixed salad greens will be transported to the plane within 24-hours of harvesting, said the airline’s director of food and beverage, Antony McNeil.

 

 

Usually, baby leafy greens are flown in two places round the year, which are from around 3,000 miles away from Newark. Thus, the airline was not getting very fresh vegetables.

 

 

The vertical garden of Newark is producing crops in 40,000 square-foot space in an environmental-friendly manner. The growing method does not involve use of pesticide. Crops are grown in meticulous rows in a reusable growing material and need not to be washed once harvested as they are not grown in soil in the vertical garden.

 

 

Passengers will get three dishes on board on the Newark to Changi route. Among the three dishes will be an heirloom tomato salad with cured ham, the AeroFarms arugula, and palm hearts. Salad featuring the AeroFarms mixed salad with broccolini, avocado, and salmon, and a soy poached chicken with Aerofarms baby bok choy will be other two dishes.

 

 

As of now, dishes made with fresh green vegetables will be available on the Newark to Singapore route only for the business class. However, these will be soon introduced for economy class soon. The airline will be further expanding the initiative if everything goes as per the plan.
