Sumo Salad2Lagardère Travel Retail has formed a partnership with SumoSalad for travel retail in New Zealand and Australia.

The partnership, which consists of travel retail exclusives, reflects the desires of both parties to bring healthy food services to travel retail within the Pacific region.

“Partnering with SumoSalad, such a strong brand and leader in one of the fastest growing subcategories in food service, is exciting for us and will assist us in forming a cornerstone for our business strategy to increase our foodservice footprint,” says Matthieu Mercier, CEO of Lagardère Travel Retail for the Pacific region.

According to Luke Baylis, CEO and cofounder of SumoSalad, a partnership with Lagardère Travel Retail is a great step into the travel sector. “Food choices have changed hugely since we opened our first Sumo store 12 years ago, and for the better. Healthy eating is the world’s fastest-growing food market trend, and I’m proud to say SumoSalad is the passionate and established leader in this segment. Our Green Label really is the next generation of SumoSalad.”

Under this partnership, the first SumoSalad Green Label has opened at the entry of the redeveloped food court in Sydney Airport’s T2 Domestic terminal.

Lagardère Travel Retail operates over 700 food service outlets across 60 airports and 100 railways stations.
