Food Re-imagined

Passion in development

We haven’t become Australia’s market leader in contract catering services by resting on our laurels. We are always innovating to keep our offer fresh. Key to this is the ongoing development of the culinary skills of our chefs and their teams.

Our food leaders love to share their passion for food, hosting Master classes for our chefs and leading ‘Paddock to Plate’ excursions where our food teams can touch and taste the produce and meet with farmers, growers and key suppliers in our network. 

As part of a global food company we also greatly benefit from the rich collaboration with our international colleagues, helping us keep pace with new culinary techniques and trends from markets around the world.

Global and local expertise

Compass attracts the best culinary talent because we offer our cooks and chefs a collaborative work environment, career development opportunities and the chance to work across different industry sectors here and overseas.

Our access to international culinary expertise means our clients benefit from the latest food trends and event theming. Via our global Compass network, we collaborate with Michelin starred culinary luminaries including Albert Roux, Michel Roux Junior and Gary Rhodes– who partner alongside Compass Chefs around the world.

In Australia, our partnerships have included Sean Connolly, Guy Grossi and Giovanni Pilu, collaborating on menu design and concept development at several properties.
