Dubai-based Dnata is acquiring Qantas’ catering businesses in hopes of growing its presence and servicing more customers across Australia.
Qantas’ catering businesses include Q Catering – with centres in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth – and Snap Fresh, a meal production plant in Queensland that specialises in Australian-made frozen meals for airlines and customers in the healthcare and food retail industries.
Commenting on the agreement, Robin Padgett, Dnata’s divisional senior vice president of catering, said: “This agreement reflects our confidence in Australia as a market and the ongoing growth potential into the future.”
With the acquisition, Padgett said Dnata plans to invest in more infrastructure, starting with a new catering facility in Sydney.
