Gold Licence Sydney Catering

The Gold Licence Accreditation Program has been operating for over 20 years and gives a point of difference to consider when hiring a caterer. The program is often a key element in catering contracts for government and private function venues. Boardwalk Catering is thrilled to announce that we have joined the ranks of the top Sydney Caterers and Sydney Catering Companies. We look forward to assisting Sydney further with their catering needs and requirements.

Thats right, we have achieved Gold Licence status according to the Restaurant and Catering Association.

This is a significant achievement for catering companies in Sydney and means that we have to follow strict guidelines on food safety, professionalism and work standards including pay rates & workers compensation. This is a fantastic scheme to be a part of and ensures our customers and members of the public can trust us when hiring our catering services.

There were a number of requirements which Boardwalk Catering has to adhere to to maintain our Gold Licence caterer status.

1. A satisfactory Health Inspection Report: this ensures that we are producing quality, safe food. We take this element extremely seriously.

2. A certificate of currency of workers compensation

3. A certificate of currency for public and product liability insurance : In other words that we are fully insured.

4. Food safety program: This outlines how our food is prepared and what logs we keep in order to ensure our food is produced safely. It also ensures that our staff know how to safely produce food. It covers elements of food preparation such as hand washing, heating, cooling and food transport. I am happy to show our food safety plan to anyone who may be interested.

5. Background resume: My resume showing at least 5 years experience in the catering industry as well as my full trade qualifications.

6. Food safety supervisor certificate: to show that we monitor our food to ensure its safe production

7. A statement explaining how you keep food safe during transport: As most of our catering jobs are off site, food transport is particularly important. Boardwalk Catering ensures all food is transported safely and remains out of the danger zone.

Thank you to all our clients who have supported us in obtaining our Gold Licence. We are looking forward to the summer season with this new feather in our cap.
