The company is called Global Catering Service Logistic. Werner had completed a 10-month consulting contract with Gate Gourmet in Sydney and was catching up with family time and working out residency and travel requirements of his new home in Australia, when he touched base with PAX International.

“I am out in the market and building a product profile for airlines, manufacturers and caterers from In-Flight service and product design, pricing and tender process, product waste management (from menu development till product delivery to the aircraft), on board/lounge menu development from writing, translating, proof reading, menu card design to printing,” he says. “Inflight service support mainly for the Asian and Chinese market. My aim is to visit Hamburg to communicate my portfolio to the market in person.”

Werner spent more than five years at Etihad Airways; through some of its most formative and rapid growth periods. During his time there, Etihad developed its refined inflight foodservice product, which included onboard food and beverage managers and later, onboard chefs, winning the International Travel Catering Association’s Mercury award in 2012. He was also active in organizing events and promoting airline catering in the Middle East. Etihad remains a sponsor for the ITCA annual networking event in Abu Dhabi.
