Trispace Catering is committed to providing food to its customers that is safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate.

In practice this has a direct effect on how we prepare food and how we present information about our food to you the customer.

The following is a list of our practices and information that will help inform your food choices

  • Our kitchens operate using a Food Safety Management system
  • The Food Safety Management system has a series of checks to help prevent food becoming unsafe.
  • Our Scones are made freshly on the premises daily
