About Swiss Canonica

SwissCanonica, forms part of the internationally renowned SwissCanonica Group, which has been an established food and beverage operation in Geneva Airport since 1948. The addition of the Dubai branch was launched in 2015.

“At SWISSCANONICA, we believe that healthy and nutritious food is vital for children while growing up, hence food quality is our key concern, and therefore we place so much emphasis on our ingredients. Our menus are developed in consultation with a nutritional specialist and a team of highly experienced chefs so that we can ensure balanced, healthy, and delicious meals daily. We work closely with some of the best suppliers in the UAE, which enables us to offer high quality, local and seasonal ingredients in all our meals.”

The SwissCanonica Head Chef and his team provide a European inspired menu with a mix of dishes from around the world.  Every day, the team prepares two different menus, each with a starter, main course, and healthy dessert.  One menu is based around meat, fish, or poultry while the other one provides vegetarian options to help teach children (and adults) the many ways of adding more vegetables to their diet. At the end of each week, a country specific menu is being offered.

SwissCanonica has a food production laboratory in Geneva and Zurich. The Central Kitchen in Dubai handles all operations within the UAE. In addition, SwissCanonica own and operate their own chocolate laboratory and Swiss chocolate label ‘Canonica’, which is known for its artisan hand-crafted chocolate. Canonica chocolate can be found in Emirates’ First and Business Class, as well as at the famous Nobu Restaurant, The Palm.
