“I just wanted to let you know how extremely pleased we were with the catering you provided for our 2019 Conference this past Friday evening, 11th January.  The prepared dishes were exceptional; each of the meats, all of the salads and every sweet selection… I know this because I sampled them all!

David was a delightful representative for your services and provided just the right amount of attention at each moment.  Everything was set up perfectly according to schedule and any concern over dishes was swept away before a chance to think about it even occurred.
Your Catering Company was a shining example of everything a catering company should offer, thank you.  I hope to have the occasion to utilise your services once again and will happily recommend to anyone in need.”

“Thank you for your outstanding contribution! I write to thank you for the exceptional contribution your organization made to the success of our Rotorua Conference during the week 26 November to 1 December 2018

Responsible Care NZ had the honour of hosting 55 delegates from 43 countries for a long-awaited and eagerly anticipated meeting in New Zealand. Rotorua was chosen because of its world-class conference options, together with extra-curricular activities featuring the world’s leading tourist attractions.
As host for this small but discerning group of experienced international travellers, our aim was to showcase the very best of New Zealand food and wine.
You will be pleased to learn our delegates were unanimous in their praise for your superb catering for both events at Rainbow Springs and the Tree Walk BBQ.
Throughout the planning and delivery phases, Jess was a pleasure to deal with, freely offering her expert advice about maximizing the value derived from two events.
David and Nikkii in particular deserve special mention for their expertise and professionalism, which enhanced the dining experience. The Fork Menu for the Tree Walk function was a highlight of a memorable week.
In short, two outstanding catering events which exceeded our high expectations, reflecting great credit on your people and the level of service they provide.
Please convey to your team the gratitude and appreciation of Responsible Care NZ and especially our discerning international guests, for a memorable, Kiwi style dining experience in Rotorua. “

“Hi Simon

The feed back from the event was absolutely top notch 🙂 everyone has been raving about the event and the food. The service from the staff you provided and the help they gave to our volunteers was amazing.

We had one of our fighters come up to me after the evening had finished and told me his family had attended, they are in the business of hospitality and they were very impressed with the way the food came out, the timing, co-ordination and the food presentation amount and taste was perfect.

We had such a great evening and your service to us was great. We are so happy with the outcome. We raised about $12,000 so that will help start the playground project for the Centre.

Thanks so much Simon, you and your team made things that much easier for us :-)”

“Dear Simon & The Catering Company,

We can not say thank you enough for the fabulous catering for Aratika Trust at the Concert Chamber last Saturday.  I know that the vegan menu was a challenge but you all rose to the occasion brilliantly. We received many many compliments from those attending about the beautiful nutritious food.  It was great to have the food labelled and people were asking for the recipes.

I know that people approached your staff on the day to compliment them but we wanted to make sure you were aware just how much it was appreciated by our Trust. Both the quality of the food and the effort that went into ensuring that it ran so smoothly. Below are just some of the comments we have received already about the day. You can see that the food rates highly.”

Again, many thanks
