CATERING
bacteria that could possibly be on
the food, " Detloff continued. " I think
those are some of the best practices
right now is really using the people
that prepare the food properly in
using the aviation caters. "
Leeman agreed, saying that food
safety and food quality go hand-inhand; you can't have one without the
other.
" The requirements for the quality of
the items that we produce are dependent
upon practicing best in class food safety
standards. I mean, you don't get crisp,
crunchy lettuce by allowing temperature
abuse. Everything goes hand-in-hand
to have the best experience for the
passenger on board, " Leeman said.
And now with more people focused
on food safety, that quality of service can
continue into the air.
" Back in the day, everybody thought
it was just the caterer's responsibility
on food safety, but it's all of our
responsibility when it comes to food
safety. Because the caterer can follow

all the steps properly. But when it's
delivered to the FBO, if they don't
follow the steps properly, it can be
contaminated. At the same time if the
FBO follows all the steps and delivers
to the flight crew, and they don't follow
the proper steps it can be contaminated, "
Detloff said.

The Future of Food
Safety
Detloff said he doesn't see the focus on
food safety waning post-pandemic.
" It's our job as flight crew members,
to know the training and how to
mitigate the risk. And I think nowadays
with COVID-19, I think everybody's
really trying to follow the proper
protocols and inspecting where they're
getting the food, what FBOs they're
using that are following the food safety
protocols that the FDA recommends.
And I think that will be here to stay as
well, " he said.
Leeman added that while the
pandemic and it's impacts on the

industry and world cannot be overstate,
he believes everyone will be better for
it in the long run.
" We haven't been any safer, and
when it comes to safety and those kinds
of things, we've passed a threshold of no
return, and these heightened protocols
are here to stay, " Leeman said. " I think
that COVID is a terrible, terrible thing.
But from a business standpoint and what
our product is and what we do, it has
actually made us be very innovative and
think all the way through the process in
ways that we hadn't before.
In the end, I think your business
aviation caterer is much, much better
off now than even before COVID, " he
continued. " Because people weren't
as interested in food science or health
and safety as they are now, and that has
pushed health, safety and sanitation in
food production for every organization
in the hospitality space, " he continued.
