LSG Sky Chefs, Miele and MChef collaborate in offering Gourmet Meals

August 31, 2018

Neu-Isenburg – LSG Sky Chefs, Miele and MChef are joining forces to exploit new potential in airline, train and lounge catering with the new “Dialog Oven” produced by Miele. Using the MChef App to configure it, the oven is capable of heating different components of a pre-produced gourmet meal at individual temperatures for optimal flavor and consistency within just 25 minutes through state-of-the-art technology.

“This cooperation with MChef is particularly important to us because they have developed completely new offers for the premium segment, and we can now offer these high-quality meals exclusively to our airline, train and lounge customers,” said Lars Redeligx, Head of Commercials and Speaker Europe at the LSG Group.

“By using the Miele Dialog Oven in these market segments, we gain meaningful feedback from a particularly demanding target group,” said Martin Eilerts, founder and CEO of MChef. “This will contribute to further refining and optimizing our products.”

In addition, MChef benefits from LSG Sky Chefs’ production development expertise, logistics, recipes and ingredient selection. At the same time, LSG Sky Chefs will gain insight into new packaging technologies and acquire more experience in extending the shelf life of high-quality meals.

The signing of the letter of intent was preceded by a test phase lasting several weeks in the Lufthansa First Class Lounge at Munich Airport, which is operated by LSG Sky Chefs. And the results turned out to be very promising for the parties involved.

“We look forward to further cooperation with these experts in order to be able to offer gourmet food more flexibly,” concluded Redeligx.
