Monday, May 28, 2001

Milano , 28 May 2001 - Via its US subsidiary HMSHost, the Autogrill Group, world leader in catering services for travelers, has won a new contract for development and management of catering and retail business at the international airport of Halifax in Canada. The contract lasts 10 years for the food and beverage business – which should develop turnover of some USD 45 million in that period – and 5 years for the retail business, with estimated sales of USD 10 million.
Winning the bid for Halifax airport confirms Autogrill’s strategy of serving not only large airports (the group is global leader in the segment and present in 15 of the world’s 20 largest airports), but also those of medium size, with formats and brands tailor-made for every location.
