Where our food comes from

Transparency and authenticity are driving food choices. The food served by our chefs comes increasingly from local farms and our supply experts work with distributors and producers to ensure the ingredients we use meet sustainable and responsible sourcing standards. We believe in an integrated, sound and sustainable approach to farming. We are proud to make a positive impact on the overall food system through the meals we serve.

Local, seasonal and sustainable

Our supply experts are increasingly sourcing local and seasonal produce, and working with local farmers and producers around each of our client sites.  We take pride in increasing the availability of fresh products, reducing our environmental impact and to contributing to the livelihood of our clients' communities.


Food safety: our number 1 priority

Responsible sourcing

Wheelbarrow filled with vegetables being pushed through a vegetable gardenWe're working with the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) to develop a sustainable sourcing strategy for the following priority commodities: fruits and vegetables, palm oil, soy, beef and dairy. These five are the most important for our business and have the highest environmental impact.
Starting from 2018, we use cage-free fresh eggs across all our Australian operations with full alignment with RSPCA's approved strandards.
