Mabata-Glocal Eatery, supported by the Saint Mary's University Entrepreneurship Centre, has opened what they claim is Canada’s first airport honesty food pop-up shop, in the arrivals foyer of the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.

Mabata-Glocal Eatery bills itself as a premium farm-to-table restaurant founded by two world travellers, foodies and recent immigrants who chose to live and set up their business in Nova Scotia. The business partners already operate Mabata, a gourmet eatery in Bedford.

The new honesty pop-up shop, allows customers to pick the food, snack and drink they wish to purchase, punch in their order using a touch screen, and pay via a self-service checkout, without anyone watching.

The airport shop will operate during the summer months as a 24-7 unmanned shop and offers a help line to assist any customer that requires assistance making a purchase.
