Catering for the Olympic and Paralympic Games is recognised as being the largest peace-time catering operation in the world. In the Olympic Village alone, London 2012 required 25,000 loaves of bread, 75,000 litres of milk and more than 330 tonnes of fruit and vegetables. During the course of the Games, London 2012 provided an estimated 14 million meals to feed a diverse range of groups each with their own requirements.

The London 2012 Olympic Games were awarded a Good Egg Award in recognition of their commitment to source only cage-free eggs across all the Olympics and Paralympic Games.
