Caterfood has a unique relationship with Cantina, working directly with their head Chef, Barry George to secure only the best, and ideally, locally sourced products.
There is nothing “standard” to be found in the Cantina kitchen, and the creative process is constantly ongoing. Barry might be inspired to create a selection of new dishes for their seasonal menu and require an array of new ingredients. It is at this point, Barry will contact our Sales and Purchasing teams to request those foods; but only the best and ideally local versions of these will do – and we will find it for him.
Having a working relationship like the one that exists between Cantina and Caterfood is a perfect example of the ideal symbiotic relationship between a supplier and a restaurant kitchen, when exemplary food and memorable service is the goal of both.
