Olympics menu for Alison Price On Air


APOA is getting ready for the Olympics, having secured a number of sponsor’s executive flight catering orders

Daniel HulmeAlison Price On Air is
getting ready for a busy time leading up to and during the 2012 London Olympic and Para-Olympic
Games. Managing director Daniel Hulme has begun to implement initiatives to
ensure the company’s quality and brand is protected, whilst offering the best
in executive aircraft catering.

Hulme is bringing an
additional ten chefs to the kitchen, adding eight drivers to the team and will
employ two extra staff to manage the additional office admin.  On the road
there will be eight more drivers working shifts with four extra delivery vans.
Hulme has even purchased a motorbike with specially designed refrigerated units
to ensure ease of access through London.
With congestion expected to be a major problem Hulme is also arranging
satellite kitchens at a number of key airports and is planning to position
airside fridges at the busiest locations. In addition, the company has
undergone the rigorous security and safety tests to win Department for
Transport clearance at London’s
busiest executive aviation airports for an additional 30 staff. The London facilities even
feature a secure fridge that only those with clearance can utilise.

A dedicated new Olympics
menu has also been specifically designed for the event. “We have spent three
months designing a menu that can be created with speed whilst retaining our
world famous quality. For orders placed with less than twenty four hours’
notice we have reduced the menu size to make it workable, but it still features
a number of our firm favourites such as the most requested Salad Nicoise.” With
orders already secured from key games sponsors Hulme is now urging clients who
have booked slots during the Olympics to secure catering requirements early.
“In order to protect our brand and maintain quality, we will be restricting the
number of orders we take so we are asking clients to book as soon as they have
confirmed slots to avoid disappointment.”

Alison Price on Air
anticipates that their busiest days will be those following the opening and
closing ceremonies as well as those following the most prestigious medal events
such as the 100 metre sprint final.  Hulme explains that clients are being
advised to provide Alison Price On Air with at least 48 hours’ notice prior to
their flight to guarantee their order, and to allow an extended delivery window
of up to two hours. For the duration of the Olympic and Para-Olympic Games, the
company will be running a 24 hour operation.
