Below are snapshots of some of the major events Fresh have helped bring to life.

We have been the exclusive caterer for Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour since its inception in 2011. This prestigious event is presented by Opera Australia on a stage floating on Sydney Harbour in front of specially constructed stands and dining areas on the Fleet Steps. It runs for 28 days and during that time, Fresh caters nightly for up to 80 fine dining guests, 150 premium Platinum Lounge and up to 2770 guests seated in the stands.

Our food philosophy
“At Fresh, the Food Philosophy is based upon three basic principles, which dictate the way we cook, the food we source, our menu construction and how we behave in our kitchens.
We believe in the provenance, flavour, freshness, sustainability and nutritional value of all our food, sourcing locally wherever possible.
We cook with integrity, passion, intelligence and professionalism, with a focus on the guest experience and safety.
We always respect one another and believe in diversity, sharing and inclusion at all levels; our leadership focus is building proud teams for the future.”
Geoff Haviland – Culinary Director
