COVID-19

We take the safety and health of our clients and staff very seriously. To that end, we wanted to share with you that The Sauce Kitchen Caterers has taken precautionary measures to ensure the safety of clients and employees in response to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. With all of us working together, we can help to eliminate spread of this virus and stay safe and healthy.

The way we work

As a catering company The Sauce Kitchen operates in a closed and controlled setting, allowing us to employ the highest safety standards. Our ingredients come directly from reputable suppliers and are never exposed to the public the way they are in Supermarkets. Our staff are trained to follow strict food safety protocols.

What we are doing

  • Closely monitoring the outbreak situation and following guidance from the New Zealand Government
  • Daily check in with essential staff on site to ensure no one is experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms or feeling unwell.
  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting of common areas, work surfaces and equipment in our commercial kitchen.
  • Maintaining our already strict food safety measures, including strict hand washing procedures along with wearing gloves and head coverings in all food prep areas.
  • Delivery trucks sanitized daily.
  • Contactless deliveries with delivery drivers practising increased hand sanitizing measures throughout the day and when entering and leaving buildings.
  • Offering separately packaged meals for those clients who request it.
  • No unauthorised personnel to enter our workplace
  • Lastly we ask that anyone who is feeling unwell to stay home. Protect yourself and your communities from getting and spreading respiratory illnesses like COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in staying healthy.

Also, don’t forget to support your local businesses when you can. This is a tough time for all.

Wishing you good health.

“Sauce Kitchen is hands down the best caterer in Christchurch. The food is so varied and flavorful. We have asked Gabrielle and Jilly to cater for a number of events where we have had vegetarian and gluten free guests – nothing has ever been a problem and the standards, unbelievably, keep getting better and better! I cannot recommend them enough – these people know food and will wow your guests with a gastronomic journey. Book them now – you won’t be disappointed!”

"We at Acorva Technical Recruitment have been calling on The Sauce Kitchen to provide morning and afternoon teas for our top clients for a few years now. Not only is their food genuinely tasty and superbly presented, they also go that extra mile for us at Acorva producing a special ‘Acorva Orange Cake’ – just for us!
Acorva Technical Recruitment – Lachlan McNeill
"The food is divine, each occasion demands a different variety, and the variety of foods is outstanding, and well suited for each different occasion.
The girls are very easy to deal with, their delivery and pick up service is an additional benefit and thoroughly reliable.
