The company started a full-fledged operation in airline catering as well as rendering outdoor catering service and it has been approved by the Ghana Free Zone Board.
In October 2014, Newrest announced and assumed 100% ownership of Newrest First Catering and the company is now named Newrest Ghana.
Newrest Ghana operates from its’ inflight kitchen 300 meters from the Kotoka International Airport.
The company was awarded SILVER QUALITY SERVICE by Lufthansa Airlines in 2002 and 2003, and SERVICE OF EXCELLENCE in 2008 by British Airways.
The growth in actual GDP slowed down for the fifth year in succession, in particular due to the tightening of monetary and budgetary policies, but it should bounce back in 2017 and 2018 in favour of a boost in the non-oil based economy and the entry into production of new oil wells.
After two consecutive years of inflation at over 15 %, there were many challenges to secure Ghana supplies at the best cost.
Despite everything, it was a very interesting year in terms of development for Newrest Ghana which won its first contracts with regional airlines and at the same time launched operations in Catering via its first contract: Lycée Français of Accra.
These performances must be welcomed in an environment where training remains a priority. The Newrest Ghana teams doubled their training budget between 2016 and 2017 for this. This now accounts for 5 % of total salary costs. Training is mainly provided in safety, QHSE (Quality Health Safety Environment) and the subsidiary now is developing a more specific training programme to meet its needs and enable its teams to increase their skill levels.
