10 October 2018 Special Report

5 Publisher's Introduction

Martin Moodie argues that the Nutella Café is both a testament to the concept of the travel retail ‘Trinity’ (airport, brand, concessionaire) and – in terms of investment, imagination and execution – a triumphant example of such collaboration becoming reality.

7 The Airport Perspective

Fusion is one of the buzzwords of 21st century dining. But the term has a particular commercial resonance with the opening of the Nutella Café, says Eugene Barry, Executive Vice President Commercial at Dubai Airports, as food & beverage and retail converge to thrilling effect.

8 The Brand Perspective

An “unparalleled brand experience” for travellers. That's the pledge from Nutella brand owner Ferrero as it reimagines its most famous brand in a new, highly personalised, setting that would surely have delighted company founder Pietro Ferrero and which is set to entrance legions of travelling Nutella fans.

9 The Operator Perspective

In its brief but compelling journey to date, Dubai-based HWH Investments has curated some of the most innovative concepts seen in the global airport food & beverage sector. But Co-Founder Talha Al Hashimi reckons that the Nutella Café is the most exciting step yet.

10 Nutella down the years

A fascinating chronology of a universally loved brand.
