Sepang, Malaysia:— It is stated by the spokesman of Brahim Group that one of its Catering, named Brahim’s Airline Catering (BAC) will try its best to gain contract with Malaysia Airlines (MAS). The reason behind the fear of losing the contract is that Airline is undergoing a huge restructuring exercise.
Brahim’s Chairman Ibrahim Ahmad says that he is very confident of the success of the meetings about the catering contract. “Within two to three days, we will be having a news, bad or good whatever it is” He also added, “We will try to be in at a cost too. We have been in meetings for a month to have a settlement for remaining 15 years out of the 25 years”
Due to the announcement of restructuring of MAS on 29th August, the shares value of BAC has decreased 10% as MAS has 30% shares in BAC.
BAC contributes 80% to total income of Brahim’s income, also supplying halal foods/catering services to 35 other airlines. Malindo and Air Asia are also contacting for their airline catering through BAC. BAC expects to increase the number of airlines from 40 to 45 within the coming year.
“We have been spreading our halal supplies to other countries since last year.
“Working as a halal supplier, we have been assisting others to build their halal component. Japan is a potential market for us, as apan is targeting Middle-Eastern tourists.”
Brahim’s also intends to increase its halal certification component. “The fees are not high, but as more flight kitchens come on board, this brings about good recurring income,” Ibrahim said.
