In 1996, Newrest began operating in Greece – from several Greek islands – serving its dedicated network Customer profile. Newrest Greece expanded to Thessaloniki and in 2001, invested at Athens International Airport.
In 2006, Newrest Group acquired Abela Catering Hellas. Bringing these two companies together was a strategic achievement for Newrest due to the complementary strengths of both entities: Newrest with its European clientele and Abela adding the long-haul airline experience; providing synergies generated from the merging of the operations, infrastructure and staff.
The Newrest Athens Unit is certified as an Inflight Catering Security Regulated Agent, holds all required quality & environmental certificates (including ISO 22000:2005, 9001:2008, 14001:2004 and 18001 certifications) and is Halal certified.
Development on long-haul flights also took advantage of this dynamic with new contracts such as Scoot out of Athens (Singapore Airlines low- cost airline) or with the extension of services for long-standing customers such as Air China, Royal Flight, Lufthansa, American Airlines or Qatar Air- ways (making use of Newrest Halal-certified production unit at Athens).
Newrest Greece activity portfolio remains well-balanced with VIP flight services for VistaJet and Gainjet recently but also with Newrest Greece Catering services, which successfully won two major contracts with Theseus Rehab Center and Cosmote E-Value.
Newrest Greece renewed all its Quality, Food Safety, Environmental and Health & Safety Management Systems certifications (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 22000:2005, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007). This quality-based approach should benefit the fruitful development of Newrest Greece Catering services over the coming months, as well as B&I in the schools sector.
