The importance of corporate catering

Whether it be a staff lunch, a business meeting, or a large corporate event, attendees all deserve amazing, fresh food.

Excellent catering is pivotal in satisfying important clients, but it is also a great way to show gratitude to your hard-working employees.

At R&V we believe that food is a great way to connect people, we want to change the way lunches, meetings and events are catered for with simply, quality food.

When choosing a caterer, as well as great taste and appearance, food safety and hygiene are equally as important for your staff and clients. If you carefully pick a reputable caterer, you can relax knowing that these issues have been considered to a highest of standards.

Robert & Victor have a 5* food hygiene rating and we always go above and beyond to ensure the safety of our customers.

Catering is one of the most important components of a successful corporate event or meeting. Getting this part spot on helps engage attendees and give them something to remember.

How to produce excellent corporate catering

There are many aspects to providing great catering, including both the service and the actual food and packaging.

With the world becoming more and more aware of the environmental impact we have, sourcing food locally and eco-friendly packaging is a must. There are excellent plastic-free alternatives for packaging food on offer including bamboo cutlery, palm leaf bowls and Bagasse (sugarcane pulp) containers.

Using fresh produce in is also key to obtaining repeat clients! At R&V we take pride in using fresh ingredients in our menu items, sourced from local suppliers and cooked each day, without using any unnatural preservatives or flavourings.

Human contact is always important! Despite the ease of ordering online, many people still want to speak to an actual human for recommendations, discussing dietary requirements and so on, meaning having this option available is a must.

Understanding the temperamental nature of meetings and events is essential for catering companies, as clients will typically need last minute orders or changes from time to time – flexibility is vital.

With flexibility in taking orders, also comes punctuality when delivering them! Whether caterers have their own delivery service or use external couriers, being on time (or early) is vital, and at R&V we try to maintain this with every order.

Despite the obvious (excellent food) all the above factors come into play when providing top corporate catering. Please get in touch with our team at R&V for more information or to order!
