Specialising in catering on board corporate and private aircraft, Air Culinaire Worldwide succeeds in offering quality cuisine, varied menus and service 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Air Culinaire Worldwide is “CE certified” and is also certified Halal.

At the Paris-Le Bourget airport, Air Culinaire Worldwide has just moved into its new kitchen to be close to the aircraft to service each flight in less than a quarter of an hour and thus satisfy last minute requests.

To ensure the highest levels of hygiene and maintenance of the premises, Altro floors and walls were chosen. The kitchen, corridors, locker rooms, preparation rooms (hot and cold) and the storage rooms were fitted with Altro Stronghold 30 on the floor and the Altro Whiterock White on the walls.

In its new kitchen Air Culinaire Worldwide benefits from the qualities of Altro Stronghold 30 safety flooring and impervious and waterproof Altro Whiterock White hygienic wall cladding. Together the products provide safety and hygiene in the kitchen, enabling the Air Culinaire team to quickly deliver meals worthy of French gastronomy.

The hygiene of the premises is impeccable and meets the expected requirements. “As we need to deliver meals at all times, it is important the kitchen is always operational. The Altro floor and wall system allows us to quickly and efficiently clean and maintain optimal cleanliness. The fact that we have equipped the floors and the walls of the whole premises saves times because the protocol for cleaning is the same everywhere and simple to carry out,” says Thierry Fournier, General Manager of Air Culinary Worldwide Paris.

Altro Stronghold 30 achieves Altro’s highest rating for slip resistance (PTV ≥55, R12) and is designed to minimise risk in wet and greasy conditions for the lifetime of the flooring. As well as helping to keep staff safe from slips, it also helps reduce their fatigue, thanks to its 3mm thickness which provides noise reduction and comfort underfoot. Combined with Altro Whiterock hygienic wall cladding, it creates a safe and hygienic environment for commercial and industrial kitchens. The system offers the best possible protection against bacteria, bugs and vermin.

Altro’s integrated floor and hygienic wall cladding system makes cleaning easier too. Altro resilient floors for kitchens and hygienic environments and hygienic wall cladding are HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) compliant, providing peace of mind with the risk assessments of environmental safety.
