Our Secret Recipe
Nourishment isn’t about calories and macros. At Foodfolk we’re all about generous servings of fresh, natural produce, prepared by folks who love to cook — not by machines.
We believe that food is more than fuel; it’s packed with emotion, culture, discovery and desire. Dishes can transport us in time to happy moments, gathered with family, evoking memories of a mouthwatering meal from the heart. We know that diners can taste the care we put into every meal, and appreciate the simple joy of its seamless journey to them.
As considerate citizens, we’re always looking for ways to ‘give more good’ — opting for environmentally sustainable processes, providing meals for those in need, and supporting the work of other good folk.
Our Dining Partners
It all began in a lunch bar
The Hazife family started out from a small family lunch bar: Tony’s Sandwich Supply in Belmont. Pilots regularly visiting the shop proposed we should take on airline meals.
New recipes, new name
Ismail and Maria Hazife started Perth Inflight Catering (PIC) with four staff, operating out of a tiny kitchen at Perth Airport — working together around the clock.
Booming with WA mining
Perth Inflight Catering expanded our staff to 40 people and our facilities from 400sqm to 800sqm as our contracts for WA regional airlines continued to grow.
More big events in catering
We further expanded our catering services to deliver meals for Perth stadiums including Subiaco Oval, Burswood and RAC Arena.
PIC goes global with Etihad
With Salim Hazife now Managing Director, PIC gained international airline customers, including Etihad, continuing as a supplier until they ceased flights to Perth in 2017.
South African Airways
Earned an international contract for South African Airways, continuing until they ceased trading due to the impact of COVID.
PIC is awarded our third major international award in three years, firmly placing us amongst the world’s best airline caterers.
Great food on the land
More people get to experience the PIC difference as we begin catering for Royal Perth Hospital for the WA Government.
Continuing through COVID
While some inflight caterers shuttered their doors, we began directly servicing Virgin Australia flights in Perth, and were awarded a large, short-term contract for Crown.
A new recipe for the future
With a fresh new vision and a delicious new brand, we relaunched as Foodfolk Australia.
