Our Story

Tasty Plate is the brainchild of a group of committed individuals intent on creating meaningful life opportunities for local people.

Years in the planning, this innovative business model today provides support and exciting career pathways to staff who have a range of abilities.

On-the-job skills development with training helps to create bold new opportunities for these remarkable people.

But far from simply providing a job, Tasty Plate's Board of Management has placed particular emphasis on creating a warm, welcoming and inclusive work environment. The people who work here are enthusiastic and passionate about what they do and genuinely love being at Tasty Plate.

Under the patient and careful guidance of Catering Manager, Jean Phillipe Gaston, the Tasty Plate team creates innovative catering options that bring functions to life.

This is true soul food created with real love!

Our Food Philosophy

Our catering menus are created around the seasons. Our menus are food that tastes the way food ought to taste at its best! Our seasonal menus ensure we can remain at the forefront of changing food trends, delivering not only quality and freshness, but  also innovation.

We also take great care to support our local producers. You can be sure the food we present to you and your guests has travelled a minimum number of 'food miles' to your plate.

Tasty Plate specialises in quality catering for:

  • corporate lunches
  • morning tea
  • afternoon tea
  • birthdays
  • anniversaries
  • memorial services
  • children's parties
  • picnics
  • and a huge range of other functions and events

"The food always arrived at the perfect moment, beautifully presented, fresh and bountiful. The Tasty Plate teams were wonderfully helpful and friendly to deal with, we have since recommended them to other Warrnambool businesses."
