The London 2012 Organising Committee has confirmed that both the Olympic torch and cauldron are designed, manufactured and engineered by UK companies. They will showcase British creativity, ingenuity, and production across the UK and around the world. The Olympic torch is designed in Hackney, engineered in Basildon and manufactured in Coventry. Only one small part inside the cauldron will be supplied by a company outside the UK following a competitive tender process.
