The selection of healthy food options in airports continues to grow. Most recently, airport specialty retailer Marshall Retail Group partnered with MEEL, the Nashville-based meal kit service, to open MEEL’s first brick and mortar store in Nashville International Airport (BNA) in Concourse C.
Well-known in Nashville for its sustainable, locally sourced meal kits, MEEL offers fresh, “farm-to-flight” grab and go eats featuring seasonal, organic, biodynamic, and non-GMO ingredients that are nutrient dense and grown and raised in the local Tennessee Community.
MEEL’s seasonal offerings include a trifle jar featuring locally grown, fresh organic strawberries from Delvin Farms in addition to wholesome foods and an assortment of nutritious, kid-approved snacks. The innovative concept also serves breakfast and lunch and its Wellness Bar offers specialties such as a turmeric latte, bone broth, or Sri Lankan milk tea in a biodegradable cup.
“As travelers continue to prioritize their health and wellness, MEEL’s sustainably sourced, organic offerings allow them to enjoy healthy, satiating items with-out compromising taste or convenience,” said Toby Keir, CEO of Marshall Retail Group.
“I’ve been traveling through BNA since childhood, so I am thrilled to bring such an amazing selection of local, regional, and sustainable foods to my home air-port,” commented MEEL Founder Marti Emc.
