QSAI, in collaboration with its alliance members and stakeholders conducted a global review of legislative, dietary, and religious requirements to ensure harmony and international compliance when developing and providing Special Meals to passengers. Together, we are proud to announce the updated international reference on Special Meals for 2023.

Consult the updated version of the QSAI Special Meal Codes, Definitions & Interpretation Guidelines.
The updated guidelines cover over 20 different Special Meal Codes such as the GFML, KSML, VGML, BDML and their requirements. These standards are the central guide to help ensure airline and railway food service providers prepare, label, and offer passengers with up-to-date food choices that respond to their cultural and dietary needs. Whether you are gluten intolerant, kosher, vegetarian, vegan, require a balanced diet meal and more, QSAI advocates for every passenger. QSAI provides its partners with the necessary tools to make sure every traveler is protected and receives meals that satisfy their dietary requirements.
A comprehensive and complete Technical Report on the Revision of the Special Meal Codes, Definitions and Interpretation Guidelines is also available.
The report dives deep into each of the new recommendations and requirements behind each Special Meal Code. Behind each proposed recommendation are hundreds of legislative, industry, dietary and religious sources, a detailed market analysis and the feedback of over 40 QSAI Participants and Catering Organizations audited under the QSAI Programme. If you are an airline, railway partner or food service provider, the report provides all the data necessary to ensure Special Meal compliance and the ability to communicate accurate information to all passengers.
