Global-C Nederland BV Global-C designs, sources and delivers sustainable meal service equipment, food packaging and comfort items to airlines, caterers and food service customers across the globe. We’re passionate about customer experience; striking the right balance between sustainability, quality, function and value through our product designs and solutions. We serve our customers from locations in Asia-Pacific, Europe and the United States. What makes your products / services stand out? Three things really: customer focus at all costs; competence in product development, contract manufacturing and supply chain management; and, speed. Our product and solutions portfolio is quite large, especially for a company of our size, but what ties this all together is the why. Customers trust us with their most important projects because they know we will get it done. What brings you to the EXPO this year? FTE Asia Expo is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with customers and business partners in the region after the long COVID-19 forced shutdown. Global-C wants to support the show, given the growing importance of Asia Pacific airlines and caterers in our portfolio. We look forward to meeting old friends and making new contacts. Why should visitors come to your stand and what can they expect to see? The #1 driver of product change prior to the pandemic was sustainability, and while most projects were paused, they are now back on the agenda. Global-C has spent these past years developing our range of sustainable meal service solutions, and we will exhibit the highlights of these efforts on our stand. What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis? COVID-19 crisis has delivered some tough lessons for the airline industry. We have learnt that travel and open borders cannot be taken for granted. We can no longer depend on single source supply chains, diversification of manufacturing outside of traditional production hubs in Asia is critical to guarantee supply consistency. At Global-C we endeavour to establish manufacturing partners in different geographical locations to hedge against any political risks or logistics challenges.
