It's just....My box of Great British Fish & Chips

The Alexir Partnership is delighted to be associated with Green Gourmet and congratulate them on winning the Food and Beverage Category Mercury Award 2014 for the 'It’s Just… My Box of Great British Fish & Chips'. The Mercury’s are the leading awards in the global travel catering industry and are judged by a highly respected panel of senior caterers and industry representatives.

The product solves the previous problem of how to keep batter crispy and chips non-soggy in an oven-cook, consumer ready box. Featuring white and flaky, sustainably sourced cod fillet, it is the first consumer ready product for the global travel market to be certified to the Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) environmental standard.

Green Gourmet called upon The Alexir Partnership to overcome the challenge to construct the tamper-proof box, a key element in creating the winning formula for the product. The specialist board selected enables the fish and chips to be heated correctly whilst maintaining the succulence expected of this classic British dish. This product has already had a listing by British Airways and is now being trialled by some other well known worldwide carriers right the way around the globe.

The Alexir Partnership works closely with the airline and travel catering sectors in designing, developing and manufacturing bespoke food packaging to enhance food products which are being created and delivered to the world’s leading airlines and travel providers.
