Brisbane Airport welcomes Michelin star chef inspired F&B outlet to Domestic Terminal
Seeds by Michelin-star chef Bruno Loubet, the first new F&B retailer to sign on as part of Brisbane Airport’s $40 million redevelopment of its Domestic Terminal, is set to open for trade late 2018.
Owned and operated by Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE), Australia’s most experienced airport F&B operator, Seeds offers fresh, natural and sustainable food including poke bowls, fruit salads, smoothies, juices and coffee, presented with a decent dose of chef mastery to ensure tastes and textures combine for an incredible culinary experience.
Brisbane Airport will be the first airport in Australia to open Seeds which promises to deliver some of Bruno Loubet’s famous salad and dressing recipes which, up and till now, are only available in his high-end restaurants.
Andrew Brodie, Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) General Manager, Airline and Retail Management, said, “Consumers are much more conscious of their diet than they were a decade ago and they expect and deserve to have the best F&B offerings available to them at the airport.
“Not only does Seeds deliver an exciting menu that complements what is currently on offer in our Domestic Terminal, by using locally sourced produce the team at Seeds will literally be serving up the essence of Queensland with their colourful, nourishing and refreshing options,” Mr Brodie said.
John Chapman, CEO of Airport Retail Enterprises, said, “We are extremely excited to be continuing our partnership with BAC by bringing Seeds by Bruno Loubet to Brisbane Airport.
“BAC has always challenged its retailers as to their offerings and ARE will continue to put forward alternate style partnerships that will help redefine the food culture in Brisbane Airport,” Mr Chapman said.
Already a long time tenant of Brisbane Airport’s Domestic Terminal ARE operates a number of other F&B stores onsite including Bar Roma, Bar Corretto, Graze, Hungry Jacks, Gateway, NRG Express, Subway, Velocity, Wok on Air and Bar Corretto at the International Terminal.
Airport Retail Enterprises (ARE) is an Australian privately-owned company which has operated leading Food & Beverage outlets in Australian airports since 1971 and most recently in the United Kingdom.
