Special Dietary Requests Menu offers a range of catering menu items that cater for common dietary requests including Gluten, Diary, Vegetarian, Halal and Vegan preferences that are available to order online.
One-in-three Australians are removing dairy, meat, and gluten from their diets and are healthier as a result, according to Australia’s largest ever diet survey. In some other research, they noted that that the majority of people are removing gluten and other foods from their diets to alleviate adverse and distressing symptoms, which is why we see more and more people redefining their dietary preferences. However, it is not just about taking a few ingredients out of the platter to ensure they are not getting any gluten, dairy or meat. Catering experts have to consider different health and lifestyle aspects to properly respond to everyone’s specific needs.
33% of people are eliminating gluten, dairy or meat for a healthier lifestyle.
Food allergies affect around 2% of all Australian adults and almost 8% of children under the age of 5. As the majority experience terrible reactions to peanuts, eggs, cow’s milk, and fish, it’s quite challenging to prepare a meal that would exclude all of the listed items.
And there are those whose religion or other beliefs prevent them from eating certain foods, which is quite common in a multicultural country like Australia.
Finally, vegans and vegetarians make up about 5% of the country’s population, meaning that there should always be a meal which lacks meat, fish, and all animal-derived products.
So what do you do when you plan a menu for an upcoming party?
Fast and Fresh delivered on time for our early meeting on a Saturday. The food arrived exactly as it appears on the website and received numerous positive comments from attendees. I will definitely use Fast and Fresh in the future.
Thank you so much for doing a fabulous work on catering for my birthday party. The service was amazing, everyone enjoyed it and we had lots of lovely compliments on how good the food was. Thank you again. We really appreciate your professionalism and great service. Highly recommended.
We used Fast and Fresh catering for our staff social club event and we were impressed by their service. The food was provided on time and presented well. We received a lot of positive feedback from our attendees, complimenting the flavours and food presentation. Thank you again to the team at Fast and Fresh catering for being such a delight to work with.- The Children's Hospital at Westmead
Food arrived a little late and was either cold or lukewarm. For the cost I would have expected better than that. The food was transported to the party on the same trays that bread is delivered to supermarkets, simply wrapped in plastic rather than temperature controlled hot boxes which is why the food was cold. For the $100 delivery fee, it's not really acceptable. To be fair, some of the food tasted nice and there was some distance to travel from the kitchen to the party. However, distance and time is no excuse for cold food, a professional business would plan far better so that wouldn't happen. If the food arrived at the appropriate temperature and on time, we would have given more stars.***Edited to add*** Have been contacted by Fast and Fresh - they were eager to discuss our concerns and issues, which was much appreciated.
I used fast and fresh catering for our office catering. Their finger food is to die for, and their range of finger food is amazing. We ordered the Turkish cigars, and it’s a must with every repeat office lunch order we place. Highly recommend fast and fresh, on time, hot food and amazing food. Thank you again to the team at fast and fresh catering
