Why Gourmet Dinner Service?
Gourmet Dinner Service is 100% Australian owned and operated. We got our start in Janel’s home kitchen with a few dollars and a lot of hard work. Since then, we’ve grown into one of Australia’s most respected, innovative meal companies, with commercial kitchens in three states and employing a multicultural, passionate team.
Profits stay in Australia. Since we started in 2010, we’ve cooked millions of meals and helped countless happy customers save time, feel great and achieve their healthy eating goals. Unlike many of the big players in the industry, we’re proud that all our profits stay right here on Australian soil.
100% sustainable, eco-friendly packaging. In 2020, we were the first prepared meals company to make the switch to environmentally-friendly packaging options. Our meal trays are made from plant sources and are biodegradable and compostable. The lids are recyclable. This year alone, we will stop using 2 million+ plastic containers and lids, and 50,000+ single use plastic bags.
Cardboard delivery boxes. By July 2021 we will switch to all cardboard delivery boxes, complete with wool pack and dry ice for insulation ensuring your delivery in arrives in tip top condition. The box and wool pack can be recycled, however if you would like to give them a longer life, our delivery drivers will happily collect your used box and wool pack when they drop off your next order.
Zero food waste. Because we cook to set recipes, our kitchens create near zero food waste.
Taste + quality never compromised. The proof is in the pudding…so tuck into one of our meals and enjoy a flavour-packed meal by chefs who know what they are doing.
No fake foods or additives. Cooking from scratch is the only way we know how to cook so we never use any preservatives, additives or genetically modified anything here. Our health and yours is our only concern and that’s why what we leave out is just as important as what we put in! Because we freeze our meals there’s no reason to add any nasty stuff - freezing is nature’s preservative.
Passionate + talented chefs. Our kitchen is headed by foodies who love eating and love cooking. Coming from all corners of the globe they bring expertise, tradition, and authentic recipes…and none of them consider McDonalds a ‘restaurant’!
The secret is our herbs and spices. True enough, you can’t build flavour in a meal without The Holy Trinity of flavours; garlic, herbs and spices and the key is the combination and balance. We draw inspiration from all over the planet, so there’s plenty of cuisines to choose from on our menu.
