Cork Airport’s new and improved food offering has been unveiled. Following a major investment from Aramark Food Services, several local suppliers have become part of the airport’s culinary landscape. Gubbeen Chorizo, Ardsallagh Goat’s Cheese, Bandonvale Cheddar, Flahavan’s porridge and more.
Aramark ambassador and former Irish rugby international Alan Quinlan was present for the launch, to pose for photos and offer advice on the ever-increasing focus on health and wellness when it comes to one’s diet.
“It’s great to see such a variety of option available using local ingredients,” Quinlan said, “and it’s also great to see taste and nutrition being such a big focus on the menus.
“I spend a lot of time travelling through airports including Cork,” he said, “and it can often be difficult to eat well. This new offering is very impressive on that front, and I have no doubt the offerings will go down well with the public.”
Niall MacCarthy, MD of Cork Airport pointed out that Cork and the wider south west of Ireland are renowned for their seafood and produce. “It’s very exciting for us to be able to showcase these traits in Food Republic and the Kinsale Cafe Bar,” MacCarthy said.
2.3m passengers pass through Cork Airport each year.
