Salvo Grima Ship Supply has recently undertaken a prestigious new supply service with renowned carnival cruise liners P&O Cruises, supplying these luxury liners during their visits to Malta throughout the summer cruise season.

Salvo Grima had been in contact with this company for some time before the start of the 2013 cruise liner season, and an extensive task ensued as Salvo Grima and P&O Cruises worked together to ensure that all of the necessary infrastructure and coordination was in place. A representative from the cruise liner company audited Salvo Grima, made detailed searches and enquiries and ensured that the Group had all of the necessary certifications and was compliant with industry standards.

In September 2013, the first order was placed and Salvo Grima Ship Supply was entrusted to supply a wide range of goods to the P&O Azura as it arrived in Malta. The Azura is one of the largest ships in the P&O Cruises fleet, entering service in 2010. This 290 metre ship contains 14 passenger decks and can accommodate up to 1,200 crew members and 3,597 passengers. Presented with a substantial order of supplies, Salvo Grima rose to the challenge of providing an efficient and coordinated express service; sourcing and obtaining the necessary high quality produce both from its local stores and abroad suppliers.

All items were delivered directly on board the ship to the great satisfaction of captains and crew. Salvo Grima was strategically placed and sought to provide the finest quality produce at only a moment’s notice, and the Group’s efforts in this industry ensure that it remains at the forefront of the chandlery industry in Malta.
