Leaders will be served meals on silver and gold-plated tableware at the G20 Summit.
For world leaders to have a rich eating experience, their food will be served on silver and gold-plated dishes.
New Delhi is getting ready to welcome world leaders to the upcoming G20 Summit, which will take place from September 9-10 at the huge Bharat Mandapam in New Delhi’s Pragati Maidan. Officials have made many plans to give the delegates from the political, artistic, and business worlds who will attend the high-profile summit a unique experience. In the same way, silver and gold-plated dishes will serve the heads of State and other world leaders to show off India’s rich culture and history.
Iris Jaipur, a metalware company in Jaipur, said that around 15,000 pieces of cutlery with carefully engraved designs had been made in about 50,000 person-hours by over 200 skilled workers.
On Tuesday, the company showed off its traditional cutlery that will be used to serve food at the G20 Summit in the national capital.
It said most tools have a steel or brass base, or a mix of both, with a silver coating. Some of the items have a gold layer and will be used to serve drinks at the welcome party.
The designs are known for their careful attention to detail, beaded borders, and mix of semi-machined handwork and modern casting methods. Rajeev Pabuwal, CEO of IRIS Metalware, told the news agency PTI, “The electroplated silver finish adds a touch of sophistication that goes well with the grandeur of the event.”
The company says that several high-end hotels in the country’s capital have been asked to provide silver and gold-plated cutlery that will be used to serve G20 guests like US Vice President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
The G20 secretariat says that ITC is handling the food at the convention hall. The food will include regional dishes, street food, and millet.
“As the G20 meeting prepares to impress world leaders with India’s rich culinary history, each piece of tableware and decoration reflects India’s culture, art, and hospitality. With every glistening detail, we create a feast for the senses by combining history and luxury on a global scale. “At the G20 Summit, our tableware isn’t just silver—it’s a reflection of India’s bright spirit,” Pabuwal said.
India took over as head of the G20 on December 1 last year. The 18th G20 Summit, which will take place in New Delhi on September 9 and 10, will culminate all the G20 talks and processes that have taken place this year.
