We’re professional but not stuffy, precise but also flexible, we like to think of ourselves as ‘Catering with Character’.

A Little Bit About Us


Thirty years ago two best friends, Sam Conti and Renzo Mazzocca decided to combine years of restaurant and catering expertise to form The Catering Company. What started as a family run business selling handcrafted lunches to busy corporate types, has evolved in to a full scale booming catering business. We outgrew our funky little factory in the shadows of The Royal Exhibition Building and built a state of the art industrial kitchen and warehouse from the ground up, with our food philosophies and sustainable business model in mind.

We are a staff of over thirty, with fully qualified internationally trained chefs and an administrative team dedicated to looking after you every step of the way! From your daily corporate catering needs to executive boardroom lunches and dinners, from black tie shindigs to full scale gala dinners for a thousand, we cater to your creativity.

We work tirelessly to bring you the freshest, local and responsibly farmed foods and reflect the best of the season in our menus to help ensure we continue to uphold our ecological responsibility. We take initiative and have pioneered being the first industrial kitchen in Melbourne to compost, recycle, use eco mark packaging, and eliminate toxic chemicals in our kitchen.

We care about the community and have forged strong partnerships with various community 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 insist on the success of your event
as much as you do.
