LONDON, 2016-Nov-02 — /EPR Retail News/ — SSP Group plc, a leading operator of food and beverage outlets in travel locations worldwide, has opened the first Jamie’s Deli outside the UK at Avinor Oslo Airport.

The deli, created with leading UK chef Jamie Oliver, is the first of 29 food and beverage units SSP is opening as part of a major expansion project at Oslo Airport, set to be officially opened on Thursday the 27th of April 2017. SSP has a significant presence at the airport, and has been operating here since 1998.

Jamie Oliver’s newest restaurant concept and his first restaurant opening in Norway, Jamie’s Deli serves rustic ‘Jamie-style’ food that’s fast, honest and responsibly sourced. Provenance is a priority, and, for example the new brand serves meat that is always higher welfare and traceable to a sustainable source as well as fish that is also always traceable to a sustainable source. Fresh produce is sourced as locally as possible.

Catering for all types of customers, Jamie’s Deli offers plenty of healthy balanced choices, as well as occasional treats such as freshly baked pastries. A smoothie station provides fresh drinks, blended to order. Customers can choose to eat in or take away, enjoying the same high quality whether they sit down and dine or grab and go. An informal and friendly environment gives passengers an experience that suits them perfectly, whatever the time of day. Hot food displays, a pizza oven and open kitchens add a little theatre to the visit.

“Jamie Oliver is one of the world’s best known chefs and his name is instantly recognisable here in Norway,” says Morten Solberg Nilsen, managing director of SSP Norway. “This new deli, which has been specifically designed to meet the needs of the airport passenger from breakfast time to late in the evening, will be very popular with passengers at Oslo, and will be the perfect complement to the excellent range of brands SSP will be offering at this important travel location.”

Torgeir Kjos Sørensen, Commercial Director at Avinor Oslo airport, was similarly enthusiastic about the prospects for the new brand. “We are excited to welcome Jamie Oliver to Oslo Airport. We are certain this will be well received, and are looking forward to further strengthening the food and beverage offer at the airport.”

SSP will open a Jamie’s Italian restaurant at the airport in April next year as part of the next stages of the development. A Ritazza coffee shop also opened on 1st November.

Avinor Oslo airport is Norway’s leading international airport.

SSP will also be opening Jamie’s Deli at Dusseldorf Airport in early 2017.
