Our ethos

Appetite Events was set up with two purposes in mind. Firstly to deliver top class food and service to our clientele and secondly to set a benchmark in the industry for doing this in an ethical and sustainable way.

Our Clients
We believe that listening to our clients is the key to delivering a great event. Our approach is based on fairness and clarity which is why you will always get our best price set out in a clear and transparent proposal.

Our food
Is locally sourced as far as possible and we support the principals of local, seasonal and sustainable in all our menu products. We work with the best suppliers in Scotland and support smaller producers and growers to make sure we are delivering the best possible to our clients. 

Our staff
We believe the culture that we create within our organisation, based on mutual respect, team work, fairness, creativity and a desire to continually improve, sets us apart from other catering and event companies.

Our partners
We work with a number of partners to help us achieve our goal of reducing our impact on the environment such as ChangeWorks Recycling and Vegware and we are committed to continually improving in these areas which is why we are ISO14001 accredited.
