Sodexo has taken the catering contract for the Glasgow 2018 European Rowing Championships and European Triathlon Championships at Strathclyde Country Park - part of the new multi-sport Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
Around 160 elite triathletes and 600 of Europe's best rowers are expected to compete at the venue between 2 and 11 August.
Sodexo will provide "nutritionally balanced meals" to athletes and team officials, technical officials, volunteers, Championships Family and spectators.
Over the course of the 10-day competition the company expects to serve more than 10,000 meals to teams and staff, alongside catering for the general public.
Sodexo will be providing employment opportunities to locals and those with catering industry experience as it plans to recruit around 50 additional staff to provide support during the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.
The Glasgow 2018 European Championships is the biggest sporting event to be staged in Scotland since the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and will take place in venues across Glasgow and the rest of Scotland.
