Culture

As the flagship company for The Truffles Group, our team at Truffles Catering is driven by 25 years of unwavering passion for extraordinary catering services.

 

Truffles Catering is Victoria’s largest caterer for corporate events, weddings, office functions, social occasions and celebrations.

Our reputation and success is the direct result of consistently delivering responsive, quality catering services to our clients in Victoria, Canada and internationally.

 

Natural, ethically-sourced foods

As one of the original founders of the Island Chef’s Collaborative, we have a strong understanding of utilizing sustainable practices in food.

We purchase from local suppliers who can deliver products that meet our commitment to sustainability. All of our meat and fish are prepared with care in our in-house kitchen.

All of our seafood products are certified Ocean Wise.

 

Innovation & Integration

Our culinary team is constantly researching food trends locally and internationally in order to integrate fresh new ideas with our Canadian West Coast regional specialties.

Experience & Understanding

We understand catering. All of our menus are created to bring out the natural qualities of the food in an eye-catching and unique presentation.

 

Our Expertise

Our event planners are there for you, from the first meeting through to the day of the event. 

A dedicated, highly trained on-site manager and chef will be designated to you on the day. We’ll manage the event procedures and ensure that everything comes together as planned.

The infrastructure and depth of expertise in our team allow us to cater to multiple occasions on any day, seamlessly and with care. We promise to do everything in our power to ensure your event unfolds according to your expectations.

 
 

Sustainability

As early adopters of sustainability, Truffles Catering has maintained a commitment to innovation in environmental stewardship since the inception of its sustainability program in 2008.

This program encompasses management principles for purchasing, transportation, waste, energy and water, community involvement and climate action.

Green Accomplishments

Waste Management
Truffles works to create the green standard for “low impact” events by successfully diverting 95% of waste through the adoption of a comprehensive composting and recycling system used in-house and on-site at events. 

Sourcing Responsibly
Truffles sources from suppliers that share our vision for sustainability. We look for partners who are committed to sustainable innovation and integrity, and who produce natural and ethical foods. All of our sandwich meats are preservative and additive free and all of our seafood products are certified Ocean Wise.

Energy & Water
Truffles uses Energy Star appliances that are well maintained to further conserve energy. In 2012, our entire facility underwent a major lighting retrofit which will save the equivalent of two single family households’ worth of annual energy use.

 

 

Community Program

We believe giving back to the community contributes to the betterment of Vancouver Island and its residents.

With your help, every month we donate to a featured local non-profit through our coffee purchasing community program with Level Ground Trading.

For every pound of coffee we purchase (served at our events, Habitat Café and through our express catering), we donate $1 to rotating community partners.
