The Basic Strategy for Food and Beverage Services (Food Strategy) outlines the basic approach that will be taken to food and beverage services at the Tokyo 2020 Games. In addition to determining the overall approach for the development of specific plans related to food and beverage services at the Tokyo 2020 Games, the strategy will serve as a tool for disseminating information to food and beverage delivery partners.
The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has formulated the Basic Strategy for Food and Beverage Services (Food Strategy), and is pleased to announce that the Food Strategy was released in March 2018.
Food Strategy Advisory Group
A Food Strategy was first formulated at the London 2012 Games, and the same approach was utilised for the Rio 2016 Games. Both strategies were formulated with input from independent experts. In keeping with these past practices, a Food Strategy Advisory Group was established for the Tokyo 2020 Games, and beginning in March 2017, the advisory group was convened on six separate occasions.
The finalised version of the Food Strategy was released in March 2018.
