SPICE (for SPace Innovative Catering Equipment) is a revolutionary galley system for commercial aircraft. Using the SPICE research as a foundation Formation worked with Airbus to design, engineer and prototype the SPICE Galley System.
The resulting system achieves major advances in weight savings, space efficiency and crew usability. SPICE galleys are designed to reduce crew workload by assisting with or eliminating many of the most labor intensive lifting and handling tasks. This reduces occupational and repetitive stress hazards for the crew while resulting in enhanced service levels and improved operational efficiency. A typical SPICE equipped two aisle passenger jet would realize a 600kg weight savings while making enough space available for an additional 2-3 economy class seats.
The SPICE galley system garnered the inaugural Crystal Cabin Award for Health and Safety in 2007 at the Aircraft Interior Expo in Hamburg Germany.
