Naked in Newcastle airport

The Naked Deli

 

The Naked Deli has opened its world-first airport outlet at Newcastle International Airport.

The Foresight portfolio company offers a health-conscious and clean-eating experience and provides a range of gluten and dairy-free, vegan and paleo dishes. With a keen focus on locally-sourced foods, The Naked Deli told GBI Magazine that it uses high quality meats, responsibly sourced fish, and organic eggs and dairy.

Foresight recently invested £2.5m into the company, providing growth capital to bolster systems and infrastructure and continue the rollout of additional sites around the UK. Foresight also introduced John Upton, ex MD of LEON, as Chairman.

John Cordrey, Investment Manager at Foresight Group, said: “It is fantastic to see The Naked Deli opening up a store at Newcastle International Airport. This is a huge opportunity and the brand will gain a lot of attention from the numerous travellers that pass through each day. This is a very positive mark for further UK expansion. We look forward to what the team achieves next.”

Kirstie Kimmins, Founder Director at The Naked Deli, said: “We’re delighted to be opening our fourth store at Newcastle International Airport. I’m a firm believer that your holiday starts the minute you get to the airport, and what better way to celebrate seeing the world with a delicious, healthy meal. I also recognise that many of the airport’s millions of passengers are business travellers and it’s important to ensure that those that live their lives on the go are benefiting from a balanced and nutritious diet.

“Our new Naked Deli at the Airport will enable us to reach not only those who know and love our brand already, but those who have come from afar to travel through the airport. This is the first step in us being able to expand into the wider UK market and who knows where from there!”

The Naked Deli currently has three stores within the region: Gosforth, Heaton and Fenwick’s Food Hall. It is now situated in the Departure Lounge of Newcastle Airport, recently named Airport of the Year.
