EXPERIENCED

In our 16 years of being in the industry, we have catered for companies such as Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures.

WELL-ESTABLISHED

We have grown from just having one small mobile kitchen in 1999 to having kitchens with state-of-the-art facilities and various refrigerated trucks and vehicles.

DIVERSE MENUS

We are able to offer English, Eastern European and Asian Menu's, encompassing Chinese, Thai, South Indian and many other cuisines.

Big Portion International Location Caterers have been caterers to the Film & Television Industry worldwide for over 15 years.

Ronnie, the founder of Big Portion International, started of by washing dishes in 1995 for Silent Movie Location Caterers at Pinewood Studios. Ronnie was promoted through the ranks in the kitchen after three years, which led him to become a head chef. In 1999, Ronnie decided to start his own company. His first film was Dinotopia for Adam Goodman at Pinewood Studios. Since then we have worked on hundreds of projects in the film and television industry. Including Lara Craft: Tomb Raider, Troy, X-Men, The Intimidation Game, Gilmore Girls and Johnny English Reborn.
