Mango Tree scoops global award at FAB 2018
Leading Asian restaurant operator, Mango Tree Worldwide, has been honored at FAB 2018, the largest and most prestigious event dedicated to the transport food and beverage industry.
A statement showed that Mango Tree particularly scooped the “Best Individual Food & Beverage Offer of the Year in a Railway Station” award for its Mango Tree Kitchen brand in Japan.
This award demonstrates how Mango Tree is acting as a pioneer for Asian Food & Beverage (F&B) operators, breaking into airport and transport spaces with creative brand concepts while remaining true to its Thai culinary roots.
The Asian company also secured its position alongside some of the world’s leading transport F&B operators.
“The Asian travel boom has presented tremendous opportunities for the F&B industry. Asia Pacific is now home to the world’s busiest railway station, second busiest airport and eight of the ten busiest international air routes. Transport F&B operators who want to prosper in future will need to successfully cater for Asian appetites,” Trevor MacKenzie, Mango Tree Worldwide’s Global Managing Director, said.
Organized by The Moodie Davitt Report and its sister title The Foodie Report, and hosted by Finavia, Finland’s airport authority, FAB 2018 was attended by many leading global figures in the transport F&B sector.
Other major players at the event included Autogrill and HMSHost, which serve more than one million people per day all over the world; SSP, the world’s second largest airport F&B operator; and Lagardiere Travel Retail, the biggest travel retailer in the world.
Now on its seventh year, FAB continues to attract the biggest names in the industry.
