Catering

 

The freshest caterer in the industry


IFS is the freshest catering company in the Australian market, with expansion into the catering arena complementing our established facility support services. It’s a natural progression for us and our new Catering Management Team, which comprises professionals whose combined experience totals more than 130 years in major business operations, and includes catering management, chef training, and catering industry education. Our team has produced the policies and procedures that guide our catering business and each member brings hands-on experience in negotiating, developing, and operating leading projects for some of Australia’s largest companies, both within Australia (particularly remote sites) and internationally.

 

Good food, good health, good business


We understand that a well fed, healthy workforce is a happy workforce with energy, drive, and higher productivity outputs. IFS accomplishes this by providing well-balanced, tasty, and nutritious menus, with variety and freshness.

Recognising the importance of offering filling and nutritionally balanced meals, we develop our menus as a link in the lifestyle chain – one that encompasses nutritious diet choices, exercise, and social recreation. This philosophy is promoted right across all areas of the business. IFS menus are designed by qualified and experienced chefs in consultation with our clients, nutritionists, and health professionals as well as our key stakeholders – the dining workforce. Furthermore, all food produced in our kitchens is made and managed in line with HACCP system standards.

 

Remote camp and mine site catering


We understand the unique and demanding needs of remote catering environments and plan menus carefully around providing the freshest, healthiest food at all times through logistics management and safe storage. Our experience dictates our approach and we provide a variety of healthy, filling, and balanced food to sustain the hardest workers through their long shifts, and provide a feeling of home cooked goodness as they return to base, tired and hungry.

All meals are cooked without using saturated or trans fats, which further enhances the health and wellbeing of our clients.

Ethical, sustainable and healthy choices


Our choice of catering products and purchasing decisions is based on our desire to provide environmentally sustainable catering options – such as sourcing fair trade products, through to minimising products with multi-layered packaging, and promoting recycling and composting where available.

Where possible, we research the supply chain to source ethically produced ingredients with the lowest carbon footprint available – which is a challenge in remote area catering.

Our philosophy extends to using foods that are lower in fats and we reject the use of unhealthy saturated fats, trans fats and hydrogenated oils, known to increase cholesterol levels. We choose healthier oils, such as Canola or Sunflower oil...
