Environmental Policy

At Pachamama Catering, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact and promoting sustainability in all aspects of our operations. We recognize the importance of permaculture, ethical practices, and sustainability principles in preserving our planet for future generations. Our goal is to provide delicious, high-quality catering services while actively contributing to a healthier and more sustainable environment.

Key Principles:

Local and Seasonal Sourcing:

We prioritise the use of local and seasonal ingredients to support regional farmers and reduce our carbon footprint. By sourcing our produce locally, we contribute to the vitality of our community and ensure fresher, more flavourful dishes.

Permaculture Practices:

We embrace permaculture principles in our own kitchen garden here on the Central Coast of NSW, aiming to work with nature rather than against it. The permaculture principles include sustainable farming, waste reduction, and biodiversity enhancement. We strive to create a balanced ecosystem and use our garden fresh produce in our catering wherever possible.

Ethical Procurement:

Our commitment to ethical practices extends to all aspects of our supply chain. We work closely with suppliers who share our values, ensuring fair labour practices, animal welfare, and responsible sourcing of ingredients. We believe in fostering long-term relationships based on trust and mutual respect.

Waste Reduction:

Pachamama Catering actively works to minimise waste throughout our operations. We use vintage tableware, cutlery and glassware at weddings and events, and we continually seek ways to reduce single-use items. Leftover food is donated to local charities whenever possible, contributing to the fight against food waste.

Energy Efficiency:

We strive to minimise energy consumption by investing in energy-efficient appliances, utilising renewable energy sources when feasible, and implementing practices that reduce overall energy use in our kitchen and transportation.

Water Conservation:

Pachamama Catering is committed to responsible water usage. We implement water-saving technologies, regularly maintain equipment to prevent leaks, and educate our staff on the importance of water conservation.

Community Engagement:

We actively engage with our local community to raise awareness about sustainable practices and support environmental initiatives. Pachamama Catering participates in and hosts community events and workshops that align with our commitment to environmental stewardship, social justice and healthy lifestyle education.

Continuous Improvement:

We regularly review and update our environmental policies and practices, seeking new opportunities to improve our sustainability efforts. We encourage feedback from our customers, suppliers, and employees to identify areas for enhancement.


By adopting these principles, Pachamama Catering aims to be a responsible and sustainable business, setting an example for the catering industry and supporting residents and other local businesses on the Central Coast of NSW. We believe that through collective efforts, we can make a positive impact on the environment and contribute to a more sustainable future.
