Through one of their other premium brands – the Posh Pasty Co. – Crantock Foods have launched a Cornish Cream Tea in a Box.

The brainchild of Posh founder and Crantock Foods development chef James Strawbridge, the Cream Tea is aimed at air, rail and other travel passengers seeking a premium product to enjoy as part of their first or business class travel experience.

The three key ingredients are all supplied by Cornish companies:

The delicious buttery scone is made by Baker Tom’s – award winning bread and cake producer while the Strawberry Jam is made and individually portioned by Boddington’s Berries and the Cornish Clotted Cream is from Rodda’s Creamery.

The box comes complete with a jam and cream spreader and serviette.

Technology and onboard airline food ordering


Having our drink and meal orders taken via a digital device is increasingly common in bars and restaurants.  The airline industry is now also introducing digital services for placing food and beverage orders.

According to airlinetrends.com Air New Zealand, Japan Airlines, Fly Dubai and Virgin America allow passengers to place orders via the in-seat IFE system, whilst Emirates has recently issued ‘Meal Ordering Devices’ (MOD) to all its flight attendants who work in Business Class.

According to the article The MOD smartphones connect to a plug-and-play WiFi router which is separate from the onboard connectivity system that passengers use.

All the smartphones are synced to communicate with one another for the duration of the flight, don’t have a SIM card, and have been blocked from running any applications apart from the bespoke Meal Ordering app.

Terry Daly, Divisional Senior Vice President, Service Delivery at Emirates is quoted in the article as saying “The orders are taken on a hand held device and are instantly reflected on a tablet in the galley. Each order is then prepared immediately making service faster, more efficient and more personal,”

The article also quoted Australian Business Traveller who said: “With as many as 76 business class passengers on an Emirates A380, the technology is proving to be a significant time-saver in keeping those premium passengers fed and watered – as well as ensuring what they’re served is precisely what they ordered, without slip-ups.”

According to the article to take account of passengers individual needs the phones are synced with Passenger Number Records (PNR) before take-off.  Along with the name and seat assignments for every passenger, the app can also tell crew about the status of the passenger, whether they were upgraded, their meal preferences and whether there are any ‘special’ notes about them.

The service was originally trialled on flights between Dubai and Paris, Mauritius, and Melbourne/Auckland.

We think this is an exciting step forward for the airline business which is clearly recognising the need to combine technology and delicious food to provide a great onboard travel eating experience.

Here at The Bake Factory we are constantly developing on trend foods that will delight passengers. Our 2017 partnerships with Old El Paso and Levi Roots have enabled us to be able offer a superb choice of tasty meals and snacks to airlines across the globe.

In recognition of The Bake Factory’s growing worldwide customer base we have changed our website domain to www.thebakefactory.global
