Etihad Airways Catering Arm to Provide Meals for People Impacted by Covid-19
 

Etihad Airport Services Catering maintains highest hygiene standards and are using their in-house laboratory in the fight against coronavirus

 

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates –  April 19, 2020: Etihad Airport Services Catering (EAS Catering) has been commissioned by various government entities, business organisations and community centres, to prepare and provide meals to individuals impacted by the global spread of COVID-19. The facility has been selected to support these initiatives due to its stringent food handling procedures.

One of the only food facilities to achieve ISO 17025 accreditation in the UAE by Emirates National Accreditation System (ENAS), EAS Catering ensures meals are prepared to the highest culinary hygiene standards through the laboratory testing of food, water, hands and surfaces.

Andrew Caines, General Manager, EAS Catering, said: “The capabilities of EAS Catering’s in-house food laboratory means we have direct oversight on the effectiveness of COVID-19 safety measures. We increased microbiological swabbing of surfaces and hands in order to validate disinfection and hand washing efforts, which are direct indicators of virus viability.”
 
Since the start of the pandemic, EAS Catering has cooked and delivered over 15,000 meals a day to people self-isolating or under quarantine, frontline medical staff, humanitarian drives and for various businesses across the capital.  

EAS Catering is also delivering amenities and providing a laundry service for Etihad employees living in temporary isolation at Masdar City so as to operate essential freighter and repatriation flights. These include loadmasters, cargo agents, pilots and cabin crew. 

In addition, Etihad crew living in company provided accommodation and requiring a meal delivery service are also being catered for free of charge.  

As part of its COVID-19 response, EAS Catering has also introduced a holistic safety training campaign, implemented a round-the-clock dedicated disinfection team for all high touch points, restricted access of all non-essentials persons to the premises, and installed thermal imaging stations at all entrances to ensure employees, visitors and suppliers are screened prior to entry.  

EAS Catering received the 2019 QSAI Excellence Award for top caterer in the EMEA region for Food Safety and Quality for the third year in a row and is HACCP certified and Halal accredited by the Halal Integrity Alliance. To further maximise quality, the facility hermetically seals dishes on-site.
