About us


About IRCG

The International Rail Catering Group, IRCG, was established as a member organisation in 1965 at a rail catering conference in Kiruna, Sweden. It is a non-profit organisation. Our aim is to promote the value of catering and hospitality of the railway.

Run by the members, for the members

Our members are all leaders in the travel catering industry, and have a deep association with the railways, providing on-board services, product supply, distribution and logistics.

Many offer additional services such as research, development, design and project management to support and improve existing rail catering operations and plan for new train concepts.

Membership is open to all rail catering professionals and suppliers.

Our next meeting will be in Hamburg, Germany at the WTCE from 2-4 April 2019
