Catering is by no means a new industry. In the 4th millennium BC, catering provided food for soldiers during transportation and along trade routes in China, Egypt, Greece and the Roman empire. In the Middles Ages, catering started throughout the monasteries and fed people during the Christian pilgrimages in Europe. However, the idea quickly spread as a way to entertain the upper class and became a service for the rich and famous. Who could afford to pay others to prepare food and drinks for their events. Seen as a luxury, catering continued to flourish amongst the aristocracy in Europe. French chef, Alexis Soyer, even invented the catering boiler to keep food warm during events. The first of many technical innovations which enhanced the catering industry.
It was not long before the idea of catering reached our shores and companies popped up everywhere to provide their services.
