With the Olympics coming to town in only 2 weeks, does anyone consider food will be on the menu at the stadium?

Well considering the 3 major food corporations are McDonald’s, Coco-cola and Cadbury it will be interesting what the menu will be.

To sell fish and chips, the London organising committee (Locog) had to get a special dispensation from McDonald’s, the official restaurant sponsor, which is expected to provide 10% of meals served at the Games. Under its deal with the International Olympic Committee, t he fast-food chain had the sole rights to sell chips or french fries. It allows Locog’s caterers to sell fish and chips, but not chips on their own.

“Out of the 205 nations sending athletes, 195 are represented in the six Olympic boroughs and that means British food is world food,” said Jan Matthews, head of catering at Locog. “We are trying to make it feel like a food festival and we have walked round Borough market [a London gastronomic market] several times to try and get that feel. There will be fruit barrows and stalls where you can buy different types of olives.”

So let me get this right, McDonald’s are stopping people from selling chips on their own, unless brought by them. I thought this was meant to be a Free-Market capitalism society.

Bottled water, long-lens cameras and Che Guevara T-shirts all banned from stadiums in new crackdown. What’s next hey?
