Deli delights and drinks

Delicious, deli-fresh cured meats, flavourful vegetables, a spread of cheeses and seasonal fruits displayed in a beautiful spread… Couldn’t get much better than that, right? Grazing tables and platters have taken Perth offices by storm.

Keeping it clean and green in the kitchen

The healthy and sustainable catering trend has definitely arrived in Western Australian offices! The craving for healthy food options covers all areas of office catering, whether it’s fresh individual lunch boxes, gourmet platters, finger food and even office kitchen supplies. When the afternoon munchies set in, some offices make a point of providing seasonal fruit each week, while stocking the fridge with farm fresh milk for everyone’s cuppas.

Making sustainable catering decisions have been a trend country wide! People are aiming for locally sourced ingredients to lower their carbon footprint or opting for more vegetarian, vegan and plant based catering selections more than ever. Think superfood salad bowls, crunchy rice paper rolls or something wholesome to snack on, healthy and sustainable catering have been popular options for Perth.

Sharing is caring - buffet catering

Sometimes there is nothing better than loading your plate up with yummy food, sitting down and enjoying a meal (and maybe even coming back for seconds). Buffet catering makes feeding a crowd simple but scrumptious. The beautiful thing about buffet catering is that it can be molded to suit any kind of event. From formal to casual, hot or cold food as well as being able to adhere it to your budget and dietary needs. Perth offices have caught on to how beneficial buffet catering services can be, and often opt for it when feeding their staff. From delicious menus, to hospitality equipment hire, feeding your guests has never been easier with Order-In's corporate catering all-round service.

What to try:

  • Scrumptious buffet ranges from Domain Catering. Feeding a crowd has never been so easy (or tasty!)
  • A tasty selection of lunch packages from Temptations Catering makes buffet catering a breeze.

Not-so-special diets

Special diet catering has seen a rise Australia-wide, and Perth is no exception. 50% of Order-In’s total corporate catering orders include special considerations for dietary requirements. According to the ABS, 7% of Australian’s do not consume certain foods for ethical, cultural or religious reasons. So, chances are you have people in your office who choose to eat vegetarian, vegan food or have an intolerance. Because of this, the special dietary trend in event and food catering has naturally seen an increase. Luckily, those with special diets don’t have to suffer through the bland salad, ordered as an afterthought for the vegetarians, and there are endless delicious menus to choose from. Hearty and wholesome vegetarian or vegan foods, gluten free that’s not tasteless, and dairy free deliciousness are more readily available than ever.

What to try:

  • Sevenoaks special diet lunch boxes, offering yummy options for gluten free, vegan and vegetarian.
  • Hearty veggie salads and special diet friendly finger food platters from Caviar Catering.

Treat yourself (and your team)

Cake always has been (and let’s face it, always will be) an essential part of delicious office catering! Whether it’s for an office celebration, birthday or just ‘cause, Perth offices love their sweet treats! Cakes, cupcakes, slices, all the usual delicious suspects have made their way onto Perth office tables, because sometimes life just calls for a cuppa and a treat.
