Reasons to hire a professional catering company

For anyone planning or organising an event with food and refreshments, it pays to enlist the services of a professional catering company. Here, we tell you why.

Whether you are entertaining 300 conference delegates or a business breakfast meeting for a dozen people, using professional caterers has lots of benefits.

Event organisers can focus on other areas

Organising events has many elements including arranging entertainment or guest speakers, compiling guest lists and dealing with suppliers. A catering company will remove the stress and responsibility of the food for guests. Once you have decided on the menus, the caterers can take over and do the rest.

Professional caterers supply high quality food

The quality of the food served at any event can make or break its success, but a professional catering company can guarantee quality ingredients will be used and prepared to the highest standards. A good caterer will work closely with you to finalise menus that will take into account any dietary or religious requirements. Simply let them know whether there are vegetarians or vegans on the guest list and whether there are any allergies and they will do the rest.

Food safety and hygiene

No organiser wants guests or event attendees to become ill from poorly prepared food or cross contamination. A reputable professional catering company will have all the relevant health, hygiene and food preparation licences and certificates in place. This gives you the peace of mind that no corners will be cut and that required protocol will be followed to the letter, protecting your guests and keeping them safe. 

Wide choice of dishes and cuisine style available

A professional caterer will be able to offer so much more than a sit down, 3-course meal, unless of course that’s what you want! Depending on the event being catered, you could choose from traditional buffets, fun foods, formal meals or even a hog roast! The final choice will be yours.
