Westfield Stratford City will host high profile clients ranging from 2012 sponsors to international broadcasters, and of course Team GB. Absolute Taste and ISS demonstrated their vast experience and understanding of corporate hospitality catering services, broadcast requirements, events and fine dining and we look forward to working with them on this once in a life time opportunity unparalleled in the hospitality world."

Lyndy Redding, managing director of Absolute Taste, added: "We always knew 2012 was going to a big year for London and Absolute Taste, and, to be working with Westfield at this time, is going to be a very special occasion. We have already put in a lot of hard work into this project and we are committing ourselves to delivering an unrivalled level of hospitality in the stunning location that Westfield has provided."
