Events Management and Food Handling Responsibilities
Party Food Melbourne considers that the function host is the Event Manager. As such, the Event Manager is responsible for advising Party Food Melbourne of all particulars for food handling, access, provision of a safe working environment according to current Occupational Health and Safety requirements for deliveries, hospitality or other services booked with Party Food Melbourne.
The Event Manager is responsible for suitability of menu and special food needs. Party Food Melbourne provides many food alternatives to cater for special food requirements and religious considerations. However, there are often constraints with food preparation at your venue kitchen. Your consultant can provide specific advice for your particular event needs.
Caterers provided can only prepare food provided by Party Food Melbourne. We are unable to determine the quality or standard of food not provided by us.
