Comments on the report include;

“The Airport Food & Beverage Study AU+NZ by The Mercurius Group  is a ground breaking report.  It comprehensively profiles both the top F&B operators as well as the F&B programs of all the major airports in Australia and New Zealand.  It is an impressive reference work that will come in handy in assessing new opportunities and in keeping an eye on our competitors – it’s the only report of its kind in our industry and I thoroughly recommend it to all those involved in the airport F&B industry including operators, airports, brands and suppliers.” John Chapman, CEO, Airport Retail Enterprises 

“The team at SSP have found the Airport Food and Beverage Study as compiled by the Mercurius group to be a comprehensive, structured and insightful piece of work on our sector in the region. The report provides great assistance as a tool for benchmarking and the planning of business development opportunities. It would be fantastic to see this report updated on a regular basis. Equally it would provide huge benefit to see such a report prepared for other regions more broadly.”  Matthew Hill, Business Development Director APAC, SSP Group
