Every day during the World Ski Championships, there will be breakfast, lunch and dinner served to some 1 200 persons: public, volunteers, media and VIP guests. All meals are prepared in the official World Championships kitchen located at the National Arena. That is from where the meals and beverages need to be delivered to different hospitality locations in and around the Arena.

For the visitors, there is a Food Court in the large three-floor tent located right at the finish line in the Arena. The Food Court serves bratwurst, hamburgers, soup and pasta dishes. You can also buy sweets and beverages. Under the tribune, there is a small kiosk for spectators to buy snacks, goodies and beverages.

The media center features its own food court, while a stone’s throw away from the Arena the Volunteer Center serves lunch every day. Around the Arena, there are a total of three VIP lounges where invited guests, sponsors and partners enjoy their meals.

The importance of logistics and planning

The large number of different meals, hospitality locations and types of dishes are a challenge and require smooth logistics and detailed planning.

-We have a total of 120 persons working with food and beverage during the two weeks of Åre 2019. At the FIS World Cup Finals in March 2018 here in Åre we had a fantastic opportunity for a dress rehearsal which enabled us to properly plan the logistics for the large number of meals and people, said Bengt Mårtensson, Food & Beverage Manager at Åre 2019.

Sustainability is a major area of focus for Åre 2019. That is why the ingredients and produce is being sourced as near Åre as possible. Reindeer and fish are all local and all bread is baked in local bakeries. The specific sustainability goal is to minimize food waste to a maximum of 5% of all food and beverage procured.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
