Kontos Foods Heads to Germany for World Travel Catering Show

Cocktail Flatbreads, Mini Oval Flatbreads, Baklava and Crepes will be featured


Paterson, New Jersey – March 28, 2017 – Kontos Foods, Inc. (www.kontos.com), a U.S.- based manufacturer and distributor of traditional artisan breads and Mediterranean specialty foods, today announced that the company will be making its debut at the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo in Hamburg, Germany. The event takes place April 4-6 in Hamburg, Germany.


Kontos Foods will be featuring several products including two-pack Kontos Cocktail Flatbreads; Greek Lifestyle Flatbread, which has 2x Protein, half the carbohydrates, fewer calories and less sugar than other Flatbreads; Pre-Grilled, Mini Oval Flatbreads; All-Natural, French-Style Crepes; and Classic Baklava and Nut Rolls. The Kontos Booth is A82 in Hall A4.


“Kontos products are perfectly suited for travel catering,” said Steve Kontos, vice president of Kontos Foods. “We introduced our cocktail flatbreads in a 2-piece size last year and they’re very well suited in soup & salad bars, as well for airline and train meals.”


The Greek Lifestyle Flatbread is another natural for this market, added Kontos Marketing Director Warren Stoll. “Our Greek Lifestyle Flatbread, aside from being high in protein and low-carb, stands up to the rigorous refrigeration and advance meal preparation required for travel catering. It’s a health-packed and flexible pita that retains its great taste in any sandwich, no matter if it’s been prepared several hours in advance,” Stoll said. He added that Kontos Crepes are a healthy alternative to pasta, already being used in travel catering in manicotti dishes; the Mini Oval Flatbreads at only 6-inches long fit well as airline snack-pack, sandwiches; and Baklava and Nut Rolls make perfect bite-sized treats for any passengers from first-class to economy.


WTCE, held annually in Hamburg, is the leading show for travel catering, onboard retail and passenger services. It showcases the latest onboard products and services from more than 300 suppliers. The event attracts over 750 airline and rail buyers looking to source new products and build their business network.


“Passengers are always looking for excitement from onboard meals, and anyone who travels extensively knows that customer service and food are what make train and airline carriers stand apart,” Kontos said. “Passengers want tasty, healthy options and Kontos’ Flatbreads, which are Hand-Stretched for Fluffiness™, are a perfect complement to any meal, even at 30,000-feet.”




Kontos sells its products to retailers and foodservice establishments across North America and several other countries. Find Kontos on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Kontosfoods and follow the company on Twitter @KontosFoods.
