Team Red Tractor Gear Up For Olympic Campaign...
30th April 2012
With only 88 days to go until the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games our athletes are not the only ones limbering up for the greatest sporting event on earth
Also “Team RT”- our Red Tractor farmers, processors and packers, wholesalers and contract caterers that will feed the Olympic athletes, coaches, officials and millions of visitors to the event.
This week Red Tractor is introducing Team RT’s 7 champion farmers supplying the Olympics, representing each of our sectors, to showcase the hard work and effort that goes into producing quality food all the way from farms to the 2012 Games.
Inspired by the Food Vision, the activity is targeted at school children, with each of the 7 farmers opening up their farm gates to show groups of children how their food is produced and the journey from farm to Olympic venue.
Visit http://TeamRT.org.uk to find out more about our champion farmers and follow their preparations for the Games as they gear up to supply Red Tractor assured food for the largest peace-time catering operation in the world. The site also includes Olympic food themed games and activities and links to learning resources for schools on how food is produced and where it comes from.
We’ll be uploading content across the week including short films and photographs from the farm visits. If you want to show your support for Team RT please share this link on your own websites.
Thanks, from Team RT
