Airline catering giant Gate Gourmet which suffered from a long and bitter strike with its workforce at Heathrow Airport is looking to expand its operations into Israel.

The company currently employs over 20,000 across the world and operates in 29 countries and is looking to employ up to 1,000 people in Israel, according to a report by Israeli business magazine Globes.
 
At a recent meeting between David Siegel, chairman of the catering giant and Israel acting prime minister Ehud Olmert, Siegel revealed details of his company's intentions which include building a brand new multi-million dollar factory to prepare meals and distribute them.
 
As well as supplying food to airlines, Gate Gourmet will be applying for contracts to supply for the Israel Defence Force.
 
With a base in Israel, Siegel said the company is also looking to include Israeli food products in the overall mix of meals that are made across the world.
