Flame Tree Kitchen pride ourselves on our ability to provide innovative catering solutions of exceptional quality, no matter the size or nature of your function or event.
Flame Tree started in early 2014 with a select few when we entered into a partnership with the University of Auckland. This has given a centrally located base for all of our operations and with Flame Tree forever evolving, we now have 5 large production kitchens in Auckland and are partnered with other venues including The Generator, Karaka Pavilion, and Trusts Arena.
Our state-of-the-art integrated food preparation and delivery system includes huge blast freezers for storing food and “combi” ovens which allow food to be cooked in several different cooking styles – steam, dry heat or fan forced.
Because our kitchens are so sophisticated, it means the food we serve is as well. Our meals are prepared from a range of fresh produce, cooked using top of the range production facilities and delivered to your table within minutes of leaving the stovetop.
We have a total of 7 vehicles including tail-lift trucks, refrigerated trucks, vans and people movers which enable us to deliver catering across Auckland and beyond. Flame Tree specialises in setting up temporary off-site kitchens for events that may be in marquees or remote locations. We have built up a large amount of transportable equipment such as ovens, cool boxes, and holding ovens, which all helps to maintain food quality and safety.
We are experienced in every type of catering you can think of. On a daily basis we can deliver anything from a morning tea to a wedding. Other types of catering include: lunches, buffet dinners, plated dinners, bbqs and bars. We have the ability to flex up and down very easily and aways embrace a challenge.
All of our food handlers have food hygiene qualifications and we run an extensive food control plan throughout all of our kitchens which tracks food from raw ingredient to the table. This also includes the necessary health and safety procedures and checklists required to operate safely and responsibly in the catering industry.
Flame Tree has recently received the prestigious Qualmark stamp of approval. The lengthy audit process explored our products and services, customer satisfaction and feedback processes, facilities, equipment, staffing processes, cultural considerations, health and safety, and overall business management. We are extremely proud to be awarded this achievement.
