More than 220 catering facilities worldwide were audited for the 2008 program. ANA Catering Service at Narita International Airport was awarded with the Platinum Award for the best catering internationally. Besides this prize, caterers were selected by three regional categories (Americas, Asia/Pacific and Europe/Middle East/Africa).
