Elior wins five-year contract with Sportscotland

Elior UK has been awarded a five-year contract worth £5.5m with Sportscotland.

Irene Riach, national lead for performance nutrition at the Sportscotland Institute of Sport will work with Elior to create a menu that celebrates Scottish produce and supports the health, wellbeing and performance of guests.

We believe Elior is the right partner to help us deliver that aspiration."

In addition to full residential dining at both centres, Elior will provide a range of healthy grab-and-go options in the café and bars, plus a full hospitality offer for conferences and events.

Cheryl MacLeod, Elior business development manager, said: "We understand that sporting teams all have different nutritional and dietary needs, which can be very specific. By working with the nutritionists at sportscotland - Elior will create specially tailored menus, to ensure our offer is optimal for performance.

"Elior will also be implementing its specialist, tailored menu solution ProvisionPlan - designed for those with varying levels of ability, taking into account the different dietary requirements that reflect individual medical needs and preferences."
