Forklift Catering is a chef-owned and operated catering company based in the Boston area. It was founded on the principles that a great event is built around great food and that the Boston event industry needs a sustainable catering option. Forklift’s commitment to sustainability is evident in our everyday practices. Our team strives to reduce waste in every aspect of our operations, from the office to the kitchen and on-site too. This includes cooking oils which are converted to bio-diesel, and inedible food waste which is composted and turned into fertilizer.
Beautifully presented menus featuring local food are the centerpiece of any Forklift event. High quality ingredients provide the base for an exceptional menu. Luckily, New England has a long history of growing, raising, and producing some of the nation’s superior food. (No bias!) While we’re at the mercy of our local weather patterns, our kitchen works to preserve these flavors, extending our enjoyment beyond the growing season. Responsible sourcing goes beyond just buying local. Vendor partners are selected based not only on the quality of their product, but on the thoughtfulness behind their process. We work to ensure our partners are equally committed to reducing our impact on our planet, while working to enhance our communities.
Using locally sourced and sustainable products whenever possible, our team will work with you to create an experience that is both personalized and seamless.
