Official supplier to the London 2012 Games
Last year was a wonderful year for us, especially since we were chosen to supply frozen ‘thaw and serve’ breads to the Olympics’ and Paralympics’ caterers. As you can imagine it was a massive project, billed as the biggest peacetime catering event since WW2, and we couldn’t have asked for a better forum in which to spreads the good word that ‘frozen is best’.
Our speciality breads were enjoyed by the athletes, officials and VIPs at the main Stratford Olympic Village, the prestigious Eton Dorny rowing venue and at Weymouth where the sailing competitions took place. And we were absolutely delighted about the positive feedback we received. ARAMARK, the company that has handled the catering for every Olympics since the 1968 Mexico games, were extremely complimentary. This is what they said:
“I just wanted to drop you a personal note to express my heartfelt thanks for all yours and your teams help this summer. Your products are superb and the feedback we got from the customers was remarkable and unprecedented. Speciality Breads was the sole supplier for bread and bread products to all three villages this summer and both the service and product could not be faulted.
As a chef I am constantly introduced to new products and suppliers, but it is rare to find one whose product, service and availability is as consistently good as yours. Many thanks for all your hard work and I hope to catch up with you to thank you in person soon. Please pass on my thanks to all of your team who played a vital role this summer.”
It’s great to know our artisan breads helped create so many winners in 2012, supporting unprecedented levels of human endurance and helping feed everyone’s determination to do their very best. Many thanks again to the organisers for giving us the opportunity to shine!
