  • Concept 2: "Inka Bio Market" – based around the concept of a marketplace, diners will find fruits and vegetables which will vary across all services, in addition to the breakfast offer. There will be tangerines, pitahaya, blue berry, aguaymanto, apples, cacao, tumbo, peaches, zucchini, peppers, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower, red and white onion, radishes, etc.

Throughout the event Sodexo will showcase its Love of Food, demonstrating our capabilities to the highest standards whilst ensuring the dietary requirements of all competing athletes are met. With six food services each day, there will be a total of 700,000 meals served throughout the competition with the busiest days seeing around 24,000 meals served.

The Sodexo teams will be providing menus and calorie information in Braille as well as ensuring menus are equally visible for those viewing from wheelchair level to ensure that each any every athlete competing in the Parapan Am Games will be able to access menu information.

“Lima is a fusion of cultures and flavors. What we are looking for with our gastronomic proposal, based on the requirements of Lima 2019, is not only to contribute to the worldwide recognition of our wide and varied local food, but to ensure the quality, safety and good taste that all food must have.” Edgardo Oliva, Executive Director of Corporate Services Sodexo Peru.
