MINSK, 26 February (BelTA) – The 2nd European Games catering will feature local produce, Yulia Kravchenko, head of catering at the Minsk European Games Organizing Committee, told the media on 26 February, BelTA has learned.
“At the 1st European Games in Baku in 2015 the share of local products in catering totaled 30%. Taking into account the high quality and popularity of Belarusian products, the share of local food products will be considerably higher in Minsk,” Yulia Kravchenko said.
MEGOC applied stringent criteria as it selected food suppliers. “We must meet the international catering requirements for athletes. Business Center Stolitsa and LIDO company have been chosen to supply food products for the games. The personnel (more than 900 people) have been carefully selected and trained. Specialists with the experience of working at large sport events, for instance, the 2014 Sochi Olympics, assisted with the training program as well,” the manager said.
The National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) will help control the safety and quality of food products for the participants of the 2nd European Games. “Food products and biologically active supplements will be tested for substances prohibited in sport. Food products subject to testing have been listed. Testing will be launched as soon as the corresponding food products are stocked,” NADA Director Sergei Belyayev said.More about Sport
