In 2006 the Board took the decision to make greater use of our kitchen facility and the expertise of our staff.
The Village Caterer was established as a wholly-owned subsidiary in 2006 not only to provide catering to TORBAY but also to enable TORBAY to raise funds for the aged care facility by providing external catering to the community at large.
Rather than expand the Torbay–Torquay kitchen to cope with Torbay–Parklands it was decided to take all our food prepared off-site.
In 2007 the Airport Nursery site was purchased and after setting aside land for the production kitchen and for a possible laundry site the balance of the property containing the nursery was leased out. The production kitchen was opened on 12th February 2010 by the TORBAY President Ted Killer.
This is the biggest and most complete kitchen in the region and allow us to not only to meet the requirements of our two Villages but also to raise extra funds by servicing other organisations and by providing catering services to the general public.
