FILM | PRODUCTION | LOCATION CATERER
Get Cheffed is a location caterer specializing in supplying meals to film sets around the country. We have extensive specialised experience catering for the New Zealand film industry. Film catering offers uniquely rewarding challenges and allows us to showcase our creativity, versatility, and love of the craft for a very special industry in a fast paced, high-pressure environment.
We’ve got you (deliciously) covered, NZ! From catering in the Bay of Islands to the bottom of the South Island, some of our milestone projects include catering for well-known offshore productions in Wellington and servicing local dramas and numerous television commercials in Auckland.
We value being a supportive and collective part of the dynamic film industry that Aotearoa NZ has established over the years – one which has become globally respected and critically acclaimed. Ensuring our passion for wholesome and nutritious food contributes to making for a happy place in this challenging and creative sector. It was the great Italian film director Frederico Fellini who said: “Life is a combination of magic and pasta”!
Get Cheffed understands the unique demands of the film sector and we have systems in place from planning to delivery. Good working communications with the client is essential to our success – as much as our own seamless operations, meticulous attention to detail, commitment to quality and dedication to deadlines as a team to deliver the results expected. We’re constantly reviewing our processes, menus and approach and seeking to improve, innovate and elevate our craft.
Eat well, think well, there is good food for everyone.
HOW IT WORKS
MENUS & SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Our mission is to make sure everyone eats – and eats WELL. Over the past six years we have devised our own formula for feeding large groups of people in often tricky locations or within challenging time frames.
We are committed to showcasing and sourcing local free range and organic products as far as possible. Our menus are diverse so there are no boring repeats. Some of our creations have enabled us to develop an online offer, [see below in “COMING SOON”].
We provide meat protein, vegetarian, pescatarian, vegan and gluten free options. Medical dietary requirements are prioritized. In some instances, to the extent of the menus being designed around them. We make our own base stocks and use native edible spices in our cooking.
WE FUEL YOUR CREATIVITY WITH FRESH & FLAVOURSOME FOOD.
Produce & Sustainability
Our commitment to great food extends to using great produce. We source locally as much as possible, and value developing relationships directly with local growers, free-range and organic farmers, and ethical suppliers.
As the landscapes around us continue to evolve, environmental sustainability has become an important part of our growth and we’re working hard to uphold these values. We’re committed to using sustainable materials and products, and finding innovative ways of catering food and events within the hospitality and film industry.
We recognise that every event and need is different. We cater and tailor to a wide range of settings, styles and specifics – from breakfast to dinner, morning to supper, canapés,
buffets, hangi and more.
All food is prepared and presented by our team of qualified and seasoned chefs who are passionate about creating quality food.
For film location catering we can provide breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or supper. Film hours can be around the clock so it always varies. We can also provide delectable packed meals to large groups.
"PASSIONATE ABOUT FOOD. .
GET CHEFFED is committed to providing delicious, nutritious catering that is as far as possible ethically and locally sourced,
organic, and free-range.
All our practices and processes involve ways to minimise our impact on the environment, by using biodegradable materials, and
sustainable eco-friendly methods to prepare, store, serve and dispose of our food.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL ETHOS
Being sensitive to our environmental impact and eco-footprint is vital to our working philosophy. Our food packaging is biodegradable, and we compost all our daily food scraps, with a plan to one day convert this waste into biogas which we can use for cooking. Other materials such as glass, paper, tin, and plastics are all recycled.
We’re constantly motivated to improve on the system of supplying food en masse while not impacting the environment.
If you have any specific catering requests or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you!

THE ORIGINS OF GET CHEFFED
Get Cheffed is led by Carl Newman, a professional and dedicated chef with over 27 years’ experience in the hospitality industry. Carl’s experience spans across hotels, restaurants and for the past 15 years, catering to the New Zealand Film Industry. His passion and commitment to great food and local produce eventually led to the development of Get Cheffed.
Alongside a team of experienced chefs and front of house, over the past 6 years Get Cheffed has established itself as a quality, trusted catering company that aspires to sustainably provide nutritious and innovative catering services.

In response to good reviews and repeat requests we have decided to venture into selling our original dry store products online. Muesli for example has bitter seeds which are good for the body in so many ways. Add some fresh fruit yoghurt and berries - yum! Located very close to the Northwestern motorway based at our residential address Covid postponed our plans to establish a commercial HQ and home for our mobile vehicles. Each client’s need is different and is determined at the time, be it an onsite catering truck, pickup and delivery or any enforced limitations that may apply at the time.
Drop off Service
For a lot of the smaller film catering jobs, a catering truck is not required on set, so we often perform a drop off service. The usual routine involves someone from the production picking up breakfast, and we would either drop off lunch or serve a buffet on location. Or, under the current Covid regulation settings, meals can be ordered and packed, to be handed over to the unit department on arrival
