A Little Bit About Us
SO HOW DID IT ALL GET STARTED?
In 1987, Sam Conti and Renzo Mazzocca decided to combine their friendship and years of restaurant and catering expertise and form The Catering Company. What started as a family run small business selling handcrafted lunches to office workers, has evolved into a full-scale, multifaceted catering enterprise whose philosophy, some 33 years later, is a passion for delicious contemporary catering with ethical and sustainable practises.
Each year The Catering Company aims to become more dynamic, energetic and creative. In 2019 our focus is to continue to grow our range of healthy catering options for our clients supporting health and wellness in the work environment. We also hope to continue promoting our LPG run sustainable Custom Brew Coffee Truck with its Fairtrade Organic coffee range and “tree free” coffee cups!
When it comes to produce, we work tirelessly to bring you the freshest local and responsibly farmed foods that reflect the best of the season; always upholding our ecological responsibility. We take initiative and have pioneered being the first industrial kitchen in Melbourne to compost, recycle, incorporate the use of eco mark packaging and minimise the use of chemicals in our kitchen.
We also are all about community and have forged strong partnerships with various local organisations so that any excess catering or cancelled orders can be distributed to those in need, rather than go to waste. We’re committed to you, our customers, so be assured that when you work with us you’ve partnered with a caterer who deeply cares about the success of your event, the environment and the community, as much as you do.
