Airline caterer Alpha LSG took home two awards at the 2018 Qatar Airways Global Catering Awards last week (10 April), including Best Caterer in Europe for its kitchen at London Heathrow.

Founded in 2002, Alpha LSG is the joint venture between Alpha Flight Group and LSG Sky Chefs.

Not only celebrating its Best Caterer in Europe gong, but the company’s customer services manager at Heathrow, Kevin Aldridge, was also named Best Global Account Manager for the second time.

Held during the Travel Catering and Onboard Service Expo in Hamburg, (Germany), Alpha LSG chief executive, Alex Forbes, commented: “We are absolutely delighted, proud and excited to be recognised by such a prestigious customer as Qatar Airways for the work that we do.

“Qatar Airways has catering partners throughout Europe and for our Heathrow team to be recognised as the best, re-affirms our culinary vision to be the leading premium caterer in our market, as well as rewarding the effort that each one of our staff contributes day after day.

“Kevin’s award is a wonderful tribute to him personally, which reflects the attention to detail and the warm relationship he and the Qatar team have been able to build.”
Aaron Claxton of Qatar Airways, who presented the awards, added: “We have recently entered into a new long-term agreement with Alpha LSG and these awards are one of the reasons why.

“Alpha LSG has been there every step of the way, in supporting us to achieve recognition as one of the world’s best airlines.

“Heathrow is one of our most important European destinations and the high standard of catering and service we receive is critical to our success.

“I would also like to thank Kevin Aldridge personally – his dedication to our business is fantastic and he is a pleasure to work with.”
