About Us

Established in 2003, the Appetite Events team brings together decades of combined experience, the very best local and seasonal ingredients, an ethical approach and exquisite service to create show stopping, world class events for our clients.

From our ever expanding base in Newhaven, Edinburgh, we specialise in bespoke catering for weddings, corporate and private events in some of the finest venues throughout the Lothians and across Scotland.

Our mission is simple; to listen to our clients, deliver sensational food, exceptional service and to surpass expectations while supporting local businesses, reducing our impact on the environment and provide benefits to our local community and partners. Every member of our passionate and dedicated team from our professional event planners to our highly skilled kitchen crew shares a desire to create spectacular events, helping you to host the ultimate party with the minimum amount of hassle. Our enthusiastic professional approach, innovative ideas, attention to detail and a 'never say never' attitude ensure that we deliver successful and memorable events with a personal touch. Along the way, we can promise we will have a lot of fun working together on your event.

Over the years we have built up a wonderfully loyal portfolio of clients from a diverse set of industries and sectors, many of whom we are privileged to call friends. We feel extremely lucky to work with some of the best known local, national and international brands as well as many third sector and arts organisations.

We are passionate supporters of the arts and Edinburgh’s festivals and we are extremely proud to be official catering Partner to The Edinburgh International Festival a relationship that has developed over the past 15 years. We also sponsor the Edinburgh International Science Festival and regularly support the Edinburgh international Book Festival and Film Festival.

As part of our commitment to corporate responsibility we have a number of Charity partners who we work with regularly. Our kitchen team have coordinated and delivered Edinburgh’s Crisis at Christmas for the past 5 years, which delivered 1,400 hot meals to homeless people over the Christmas period in 2017. We also support the Soldier’s Charity, Big Curry Lunch and The Prince's Trust. In addition, we work with local schools to provide work experience for young people and have provided placements and employment for the homeless through our partner Crisis. As part of our environmental commitment, we work with and promote local suppliers and growers, support small businesses and work with ethical partners such as Changeworks and Vegware to ensure that we are making as little impact on the environment as possible. We are very proud to have won numerous awards over the past few years, including Best Caterer, Events Team of the Year, Supplier Excellence, Best Independent Caterer and Event Services Grand Prix.

Finally, to demonstrate our commitment to continual improvement, we are ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 certified so you can be sure you are dealing with a company you can trust.
