The Olympics is only a few months away with preparations being made to make sure the Olympics 2012 which is a once in a lifetime event goes without a hitch.

An important part of hospitality during the Olympic Games will be the tableware that food is served upon. Tableware firm Dudson that located in Stoke-on-Trent will be leading the way in fine dining during the Olympics. Dudson and Sodexo Prestige have collaborated together to design tableware that will be used at a number of high profile events, one the areas will be the VIP hospitality area.

VIP guests will be treated to luxurious and impeccably made fine dining tableware to eat their meals from. Over 40,000 pieces have been made locally in Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent which was one of the reasons Dudson were selected to produce tableware for the iconic event. Olympic organisers wanted to use china that was made in England.

The range has been named the Precision Range which features white rimmed plain china pieces which allowed the chef to present their food however they would like because of its simplicity. 

Marketing manager Katie Dudson spoke to local newspaper The Sentinel saying: “The pieces are the culmination of 18 months of work.

“Everything has been made in Stoke-on-Trent and one of the reasons we won the business was because they wanted British-made products.

"The fine china range will be used at the Olympic Games as well as afterwards at various prestigious events, such as The Open golf championships and Chelsea Flower Show.”

Ian Donaldson Managing Director of Autonet Insurance commented: “It’s great to see a local china manufacturer in Stoke-on-Trent has been selected to produce tableware that will be used at the Olympic 2012 games. Dudson has been around for years so it’s great to see a local company doing a fantastic job for the UK.”
