How We Cater For Food Allergens and Intolerances

Because we produce our catering foods from scratch, in most instances we can adapt our menus and dishes to suit any of your guests who suffer from food allergies and intolerances including coeliac disease.

In situations where this isn’t possible, we can prepare special tasty dishes for them, meeting their specific dietary needs.

Our chefs and kitchen staff carefully follow the Food Standards Agency’s menu matrix and use the chef’s recipe sheet whilst preparing the food for your event. This enables us to log all of the allergen information for each dish, so we can provide accurate allergen information to you and your guests.

Our Staff Allergen Training

On the day, at least two members of our event team will have been trained on your menu to answer any allergen or dietary questions you or your guests may have about the food we’ve prepared and are serving for you.

Catering for People with Coeliac Disease

We can provide any of your guests who suffer from coeliac disease special alternative dishes that are free from gluten, so they can relax and enjoy your event and the food we serve them.

Catering for People with Specific Food Preferences

If any of your guests have cultural, religious, vegetarian or vegan, food preferences, we can prepare and serve alternative, delicious dishes they can enjoy.

Menu Planning with Allergens, Intolerances and Food Preferences

When we are organising the catering for your wedding, party or event, it’s important you let us know if any of your guests have any food allergies, intolerances or preferences, so we can take account of these when planning the menu with you.

Once we have agreed upon your menu, we will then confirm the details of the menu’s dishes and any allergens that are present within these dishes.

At the same time, we’ll also confirm any special dishes for your guests who have specific food intolerances, coeliac disease or preferences.
