Food provenance, authenticity and airline marketing: providing an in-flight gastronomical experience

A few days ago I came across a couple an interesting article on Airline Trends (a great blog that I recommend to anyone interested in airline marketing, by the way!) that focused on how food can be a great way for airlines to differentiate their offerings and improve the traveler experience.
This is a topic that deeply interests me and I think airline's initiatives in this direction are very consistent with the ongoing trend towards introducing more doses of authenticity in the consumer experience, something you can see for example if visiting any UK supermarket, where products come with more and more provenance references in their packaging...so I thought about a sharing an article that friend site GourmetOrigins.com has just published about authenticity and provenance in in-flight meals.
