Podcast: Ensuring Food Safety in Flight

June 7, 2021

Monday, June 7 is World Food Safety Day, a World Health Organization initiative to increase awareness of food safety and the need to manage and mitigate foodborne risks worldwide. Ensuring fresh and sanitary meal options is a priority for business aircraft operators, and the increasing number of available on-aircraft food and catering options makes it even more important to thoroughly research potential vendors. “There’s a lot of things [to check] just to make sure they’re a legitimate operation,” notes Paula Kraft, founding partner at DaVinci Inflight Training Institute.

In this episode of NBAA’s “Flight Plan,” host Rob Finfrock speaks with:

  • Paula Kraft, founding partner, DaVinci Inflight Training Institute; Catering and Food Safety Subject Matter Expert, International Standard for Business Aircraft Handlers (IS-BAH)
  • Shannon Weidekamp, director of client services and lead flight attendant, Crew Aviation
