Newrest in Uganda

Newrest bought 50% of Uganda Inflight Services and took over Management from 18th September 2011 onwards.

A brand new 2,300 m2 unit has been built and operated since November 2012.

It produces 1,500 meals a day and has a total capacity of 3,000 meals.

The brand new kitchen is certified ISO 22000: 2005, Yum Certified, Halal compliant and close to the ramp.

This kitchen has been designed to the highest standards of food safety, efficiency and productivity. The main activity is in-flight catering, bulk meals for Retail and B & I are also produced in the unit .

Uganda is one of the most entrepreneurial countries in the world with a significant share of its workforce (35.5%) of entrepreneurs. The Newrest UIS teams struggled to join this movement and 2016-17 was a year of starting new contracts.

In 2016, the Newrest teams began serving Pizza Hut as a part of the pizza giant’s offer. In March 2017, Newrest UIS won the contract of the French school ‘Ecole des Grands Lacs’ in Kampala where 190 children are served daily by local teams. In line with its quality plan, Newrest UIS has renewed the ISO 22000 and Halal certifications, and has maintained its certificate of conformity of the premises. The joint venture has also successfully passed the Yum! in September 2017 confirming its qualitative commitments. Newrest UIS has been awarded Entebbe’s Best Employer Award for 2016 because of its ongoing focus on employee well-being and on improving working conditions and career development. For the coming fiscal year, Newrest UIS has been registered by the Uganda Petroleum Authority, which will allow it to consider contracts in oil exploration projects.
