SSP Frabel (France, Belgium and Luxembourg) and Italy Managing Director Gérard D’Onofrio said: “With a strong presence across mainland Europe and a history on the continent that dates back to the 1960s, our debut in the Italian market is particularly exciting. We work with our clients and brand partners to offer travel dining of the highest quality, and our collaboration with these outstanding partners builds on this commitment.

“These latest ventures mark the first steps in SSP’s robust plans for expansion in the Italian market.”
