Each year, the QSAI Program (Quality and Safety Alliance Inflight Food and Services), managed by and developed in collaboration with Medina Quality, presents a total of 10 Awards, including a Gold, a Silver and a Bronze Award in 3 different regions (Americas, Middle East/Europe/Africa and Asia regions) and a Platinum Award among more than 250 audited facilities.
These awards recognize worldwide inflight catering facilities with an outstanding performance record on the QSAI Program, highlighting the efforts that each winner makes to satisfy their clients’ food quality and safety expectations and distinguishing all the awardees as leaders in their field.
Medina Quality, an IATA (International Air Transport Association) strategic partner, has over 30 years’ experience in developing and managing Food Safety & Quality Management Programs, with over 15,000 audits conducted worldwide. It has been performing regular quality and safety audits at several of the GCG locations on behalf of several of our customers including Air Canada, Virgin Atlantic, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air France.
This award program is considered of extreme importance for our group as it places our operations within the top performers in the world.
We are convinced that the passion, perseverance and professionalism of our teams has once again allowed us to be in this honorable position and we encourage all Management teams to double their efforts to ensure we stay in this privilege group of winners.
