Glasgow 2014 has unveiled its Commonwealth Games Food Charter that all appointed caterers to the event will be required to sign up to.

The legacy of the Food Charter will see it act as a blueprint for major sporting and cultural events held in Scotland beyond the Games.

Glasgow 2014 has worked in collaboration with Scottish Government partners, the Food Standards Agency - Scotland, and the food industry to develop the document.

As well as showcasing the Scottish larder, it outlines a commitment to the ethical, safe, and healthy-living standards for all food served across the Games, including traceability.

The provenance of food, where it comes from and how it has been produced, is central to the Charter which will establish Games-time food sourcing standards.

Glasgow 2014 seeks to showcase Scottish produce to help contribute to the wider industry ambition to grow the value of the sector and develop Scotland’s reputation as a Land of Food and Drink.
