HAMBURG, Germany (PRNewswire) — Next week's World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo promises to tantalise your tastebuds as well as providing a visually exciting culinary spectacle for visitors. The largest display of products specially designed for food-on-the move and onboard services for the airline, rail and cruise sectors takes place from 27 to 29 March at the Hamburg Messe in Germany.
Cuisine and the dining experience is a key differentiator in the battle to attract passengers and the show covers everything from fine wine and tableware to children's activity packs and amenity kits.
Some of the food innovations reflect a drive towards healthier eating. Vitalit Laboratories will be launching a fatigue-fighting drink called Fly Fit Flow. The company specialises in creating foods and beverages that aim to help combat fatigue caused by travel and long periods of immobility. Fly Fit Flow claims to help maintain healthy blood circulation and support blood flow, which may reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) on flights.
Another health-conscious item on the traveller's menu is Grasshopper's expanded range of porridge pots. This ready-mixed porridge is niftily packaged in tiny, springy Hopper Pots measuring only 45mm tall. Once opened the pot expands upwards to accommodate boiling water; then simply stir, with the provided folding spoon, and serve.
To inspire travel food buyers, Servair has just launched the 'Servair Book of Culinary Inspiration', spotlighting key trends in world cuisine.

These cover: authenticity, emotion, wellbeing, conviviality and pleasure. Ingredients, utensils, and top tips from the Chefs will whet the appetite and inspire readers.
Monty's Bakehouse is expanding its range to include a selection of new bakery and snack items including filled microwaveable bagels and 'thaw and serve' items. The company will conduct tastings of its full range of its products throughout the event.
