TRONDHEIM, Norway – SSP Group, a leading operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations worldwide, has opened 10 food and beverage units at Trondheim Airport under a five-year contract. The new outlets include a mix of well-known global brands and local concepts that cater to both international and domestic passengers.
SSP has introduced its Haven concept to Trondheim Airport, which will appeal to passengers looking for healthier food options. Haven provides a range of vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose-free meals, while customers can also indulge in the brand’s famous ‘smoothie bowls’, a richer version of a classic smoothie with added fruit and almond milk.
SSP has also opened two restaurants at the airport. Foodbar serves a range of dishes available to eat in or on the go, while locally-renowned chain Max Premium Burgers offers award-winning burgers to passengers. The complete line-up of leading brands also includes Ritazza, Upper Crust, O’Learys, Starbucks and three Point convenience stores.
To appeal to regional tastes, a number of the new units have incorporated sustainable, locally-sourced ingredients into their ranges. For example, coffee served at Ritazza uses milk produced at a creamery in the nearby town of Røros.
Bente Brevik, managing director of SSP Norway, said: “This new deal further strengthens our excellent working relationship with Trondheim Airport and Avinor, and will provide passengers with an even greater range of leading food and beverage brands. From international names with mass appeal to more specialist concepts, the new line-up will suit all traveller tastes and preferences.”
Ellen Weidemann, commercial director at Avinor, said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with SSP to open these new food outlets at Trondheim. We’re very excited to be bringing fresh and exciting brands to the airport that will strengthen our overall food and beverage offer and provide even greater choice and service for our passengers.”
