Australia-based Piquant Catering has served 21,000 meals for NEP Australia this year as part of its catering contract for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland.

NEP Australia is the official host broadcaster of the official 2018 Commonwealth Games, which was held in April, in Queensland.

Following a tough competition, which saw several international companies participating in the bid, NEP selected Piquant.

Under the contract, the caterer offered 1.5 tonnes of chicken and a total of 800kgs of rice and vegetables during the 17-day event.

The company’s 50 member team produced food at its Coomera production kitchen within the Riviera building.

Piquant Catering Queensland food and beverage director Sarah Brenac said: “It was exceptionally challenging to produce 1,200 high quality meals a day and then ensure delivery to NEP crew members who were working across 11 venues.
