The Gatting’s Story

One of Auckland’s most innovative, respected and ‘go to’ food and entertaining companies

Our Gatting’s story started in 2001 when it was founded by Sally Gatting. Sally’s goal was to deliver an exceptional food service experience, and this is still held close to the heart of our company. We are a close team, that has grown significantly over the years, and many of those who started with the company are still with us today, hence there is an enormous wealth of experience.

Gatting’s is brimming with creative and professional people. Our team work hard to create modern twists to traditional cuisine. Our service is second to none.

We are versatile and can cater all kinds of events, including weddings, celebrations, at work, private soirees and Christmas parties. Our event team are full of knowledge and expertise, our chefs are extremely talented and our staff are the best! Whilst we are experts at creating bespoke events with intricate and detailed planning, if required, we can also deliver food and service at short notice.


We are also proud supporters and sponsors of local schools and one of our favourite charities is Breakfast Club Kids. This amazing charity works with low decile schools in south & east Auckland providing breakfast, lunch and support to the children and their communities.

Sustainable Ethos

Gatting’s recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.

Some examples of implementation

  • All packaging used is genuinely recyclable including confoil aluminium trays.
  • ‘WeCompost’ collects all Gatting’s food waste, baking paper and hand towels, reducing our land fill by 10,000kgs of waste a year. We have 6 bins that are collected once a week.
  • Ideas and concepts for further sustainability are continually being developed in Gatting’s kitchen, office and in the field.
