Emirates Flight Catering is one of the world's largest Airline Catering Companies with the capacity to produce up to 115,000 meals per day.
Based at Dubai International Airport, Emirates Flight Catering is a subsidiary of the Emirates group. They employ over 8,000 staff and provide catering and ancillary services to airlines operating at this busy international hub.
As with any large food production company they generate large quantities of recyclable packaging. In order to manage multiple waste streams, they partnered with Mil-tek, who could provide a solution that took up a limited amount of space in the waste room and could bale multiple types of waste such as PET plastic, aluminium cans, cardboard and plastic.
Mil-tek provided Emirates Flight Catering with a baler which could handle multiple waste streams. All of their recyclable waste is now baled and sent for recycling, which generates additional revenue and sends a positive environmental message.
Emirates Flight Catering are now in line with their corporate responsibility guidelines on waste handling and recycling.
