Smith & Co. Foods: Creating unforgettable events and memorable moments with visual and edible feasts

Meet the brilliant local business bringing people together through food

Smith and Co. Foods began as a passion project in Melbourne whilst owner Camilla was still working in the media industry. She noticed that there were no delicious, healthy options for corporate lunches and private catering in her area and so she began cooking for friends and family from her small apartment. 

When life took a turn and her boyfriend said they were moving to regional Victoria for work, she decided to give Smith and Co. Foods a red hot go. What started as small food deliveries, soon turned into weddings and private events. Overnight, Smith and Co. Foods went from a one-woman business to a flourishing company with a strong team catering events for up to 1400 people and counting.

Keep up with the latest food and booze news across the region here.

In April 2023, Smith and Co. Foods took a leap of faith and moved to Mercer St in Geelong. Moving just felt right for Camilla; with her incredibly talented and amazing chefs based in Geelong and a noticeable rise in a younger demographic heading to the area. And with that brings a new clientele who want beautiful canapes and events with a Melbourne feel but in a regional city – the best of both worlds.

The new beautiful space allows Smith and Co. to not just cater to, but also host cocktail parties for up to 130 people, as well as sit-down events ranging from 20 to 70 people. Regardless if you are after a private bespoke intimate dinner party, a corporate do or a stand-up cocktail party with everyone you know, they will work with you to develop a renowned tailored menu with fresh and seasonal produce to suit your event needs and budget. 

Having their own new space to cater to guests means that guests don’t have to worry about organising catering at a different location; they can go and see the space and know that the food will be right there when they need it – it’s just one less thing to worry about.  

Adding flair to any event, Smith and Co also specialise in grazing tables, providing a perfect option for almost all parties and events. Here the team create a spectacular and delicious visual masterpiece in any space.

And, to make things even better, they absolutely love weddings at Smith and Co Foods. With a knack for bringing an event to life and making it one to remember, Camilla and her team are here to create catering fairytales with beautiful, seasonal and tailored menus for both sit-down or cocktail love-filled events.
