Russell Partnership Collection were commissioned by the host venue, the University of Birmingham, to plan and deliver all food and beverage for the athlete’s village, team officials, games workforce and dignitaries of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
The Russell Partnership Collection’s process began with strategic planning, space, and commercial modelling, followed by readiness preparation and mobilisation. We delivered menu development, supply chain procurement and kitchen and front of house design prior to delivery commencement. We recruited 450 staff, 50% of which were students, delivered 5000 shifts, purchased £2m of food, delivered 20 tonnes of food daily and served over 300,000 meals. The event was heralded as a new high-quality benchmark for athletes dining.
