ABOUT ALPHA LSG
Alpha Flight Group and LSG Sky Chefs created Alpha LSG Ltd on October 1, 2012 as a UK-only joint venture.
The business has combined revenues of more than £300 million and employs around 3,600 people providing catering, retail and logistics services from facilities located at 17 airports throughout the UK: London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, East Midlands, Newcastle, Bristol, Cardiff, Doncaster, Luton, Prestwick, Leeds-Bradford, Aberdeen and Belfast.
The synergy savings from the merger of the UK activities of Alpha Flight Group and LSG Sky Chefs enabled the development of a completely new business set-up at LHR as well as throughout the UK, with focus on four branded divisional offerings targeted towards UK leadership in food innovation (Culinary Academy) food production (Premium Kitchen), logistics and assembly (Dynamic Logistics) as well as inflight retail / buy onboard.
The divisional branding approach allows Alpha LSG to visualise our clear market differentiation in the UK and shows our commitment to continuous improvement in all of those areas towards excellence.
