Russian Railways will create an umbrella brand Rail Food for its restaurants on trains, in establishments at train stations and stations, a source told Vedomosti. Russian Railways did not comment on this information.
The Federal Passenger Company (FPK, a subsidiary of Russian Railways) has placed the purchase in search of an organization that will support the implementation of a new concept of catering in long-distance trains. FPK told the newspaper that the new concept will be implemented by third-party companies that will buy the franchise. The company noted that we are not talking about a single catering operator, but about the standardization and branding of products, the design of bistro cars.
Russian Railways announced a change in the concept of catering for passengers in May. It is assumed that sterile containers with dishes prepared under stationary conditions will be loaded into the bistro car. Ready meals will only be reheated and served for serving. Passengers will be able to eat in the bistro carriage or at their place. Traditional dining cars will remain on branded tourist trains.
