At HostCo, we are committed to creating sustainable events in Sydney. Using fresh, locally sourced produce is key to our sustainability strategy. Our chefs are passionate about delivering delicious dishes brimming with natural flavours. That’s why HostCo partners very closely with local suppliers, ensuring that our ingredients are procured as close to your Sydney event venue as possible and keep with the season.
Here are a couple of reasons why seasonal, locally produced food matters in Sydney’s event catering:
Flavour & Freshness
One of the most obvious benefits of buying seasonal ingredients from local vendors is the extra burst of flavour you get from HostCo’s event catering experience.
Our fruits and vegetables are harvested at pick ripeness, ensuring natural flavours and juiciness – a noticeable difference from artificially ripened produce.
For seafood, freshness is key. Less travel not only ensures freshness but also maintains texture, avoiding the pitfalls of long-term refrigeration. Taste the difference at our seafood station, where quality and freshness are always our top priorities.

Reduced Carbon Footprint
Supporting local businesses and food purveyors benefits the environment. Less energy is consumed in harvesting, and less fuel is burned in the transportation process. Additionally, local crops normally use fewer pesticides and chemicals.
Furthermore, local foods are often package-free, leading to less waste, especially in single-use packaging and plastic bags.

Supporting Local Economy
As a proudly not-for-profit organisation, HostCo’s commitment extends beyond quality service. Our commitment to sourcing ingredients locally is a dedicated effort to support the local economy.
Actively engaging with neighbourhood businesses creates strong, mutually beneficial community ties. This approach not only enriches our menu offerings but also contributes to the thriving of local enterprises.
