Sumo SaladThe Qantas subsidiary Jetstar which offers budget-priced international flights in the Asian and Australian Pacific region has entered into a food deal partnership with growing food chain Sumo Salad.

Selected Australian Jetstar flights will now offer the following SumoSalad options:

Pumpkin and Couscous contains pumpkin, couscous, vinegar, capsicum and mustard

Lentil and Tabouli includes lentils, couscous, chickpeas, tomato, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard and shallots

Chicken Basil Penne which consists of pasta, chicken, mustard, celery, basil, parmesan cheese and tomato

Jetstar says that Australia’s relationship with food has changed dramatically since the airline first launched 11 years ago, and that these salad-style meals are a response to evolving attitudes.

The budget airline started with a limited trolley-service but customers can now pre-order food which include vegetarian and  health conscious options.

SumoSalad said that the decision to start selling its salads on Jetstar flights was the next step in expanding the company. There are currently 100 SumoSalad stores across Australia and the food retailer has recently started selling salads in 350 Red Rooster outlets throughout the country.

Each of the salad meals comes in a 250 gram serving and will be sold for $10 each.
