KLM to serve meals with local ingredients on select flights
Fly with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines in October and November, and be ready to be served with authentic Dutch cuisine on board your flights. The airline will be celebrating its “From Holland” Festival once again. The festival is being held for the fourth time. To celebrate the occasion, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has announced it will be offering exclusively created meals with local ingredients and would be serving on all intercontinental flights out of Amsterdam.
Leading chef Onno Kokmeijer of the Amsterdam restaurant Ciel Bleu, which holds two Michelin stars, has created the meals for the customers traveling in the World Business Class. The meals to be served during the festival would be prepared with all sorts of products sourced from local suppliers.
According to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the customers would be able to enjoy beef supplied by De Vrije Koe (the Free Cow), which is striving hard to reintroduce indigenous Dutch cattle, such as the Blaarkop, in the Netherlands. For this, the airline and De Vrije Koe have entered into a long-term partnership.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has indicated that it would also be serving MSC-certified North-Sea sole, traditional Dutch “stamppot” mash with chicken sausages, “Bossche bollen” confectionery, and chocolate sprinkles this year.
The airline said that it is taking this new initiative as part of its stringent efforts to raise the sustainability of its catering. The airline said that it is working in close cooperation with its suppliers in order to achieve this goal.
