SumoSalad touches down at Melbourne Airport
Travellers leaving from Melbourne Airport can now say goodbye to typical ‘airport food’ and say hello to a healthier journey with the opening of SumoSalad at the Virgin Terminal (T2).
SumoSalad has taken the next step in its business transformation journey by capitalising on a growing consumer demand for healthier foods on the go.
CEO Luke Baylis said the store was the first at Melbourne Airport, following the successful opening of a similar store at the Sydney International airport terminal.
The store opening is in line with the strategic direction outlined by Sumo earlier this year, which will help to "future proof" the business by moving away from traditional outlets.
“Consumers – whether they are getting on plane or getting lunch on a work day are demanding healthier options,” said Baylis.
“SumoSalad are completely focused on meeting these changing needs and are rising to expectations by making our food more convenient, and even better value.
“We want to take Australia off the podium of being one of the world’s fattest nations.
“We take this matter very seriously and see the solution as encouraging socially responsible private enterprise to make better food choices more readily available.”
Baylis said that SumoSalad had plans to open further stores in the coming months at Caltex sites while also launching its pilot of delivery services to homes and offices.
