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 professional 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

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 kitchens.

All of our seafood products are certified Ocean Wise. In addition, our company was one of the founders of the Island Chef’s Collaborative — a group focused on using and promoting local producers to help ensure a strong and sustainable supply of local food.

 

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 that leave guests with a lasting memory long after the event. 

 

OUR EXPERTISE

Our event planners will work with you in the planning, from vital first meetings through to the day of the event. 

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

Infrastructure and depth of team expertise 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 as you wish, by working with you to create a memorable experience.

 
 

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.

 

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.

 

GREEN ACCOMPLISHMENTS

We have achieved a 34% reduction in carbon emissions since our 2011/2012 report.

We have partnered with the Green Business Certification Program which was developed to help provide a set of tangible actions that businesses can take to tread a little lighter on the environment. They have audited our environmental practices and awarded us the highest Green certification level!

We are a proud recipient of the Green Business of the Year award from the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. 

We bring sustainable seafood to your plate that is Ocean Wise certified. This Vancouver Aquarium conservation program educates and empowers consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood.
