About Us

The Cartery is the “third child” of Auckland based couple, Gus and Char White. With over 20 years experience in PR, Marketing, events and project management, the couple launched ‘The Cartery’ to combine their love of entertaining with great food and styling in a way that helps brands tell their story in a memorable way.

“We realised there was a clear gap in the market for a company that could provide a one-stop shop to help brands provide a visually unique catering and event experience with a fun, creative twist. We’re not just a catering company – our ‘genius zone’ is in helping brands connect with their target audiences by providing a complete activation experience that makes a mark on all their senses. Presentation is everything for brands so our focus is always on creating a unique point of difference with our cart offering and fully customisable setup. Not only does this work well for brands, but also for people wanting to create a special focal-point for their wedding or private event that leaves a long-lasting, ‘insta-worthy’ impression.”

We specialise in brand activations, launches and events

Our food, beverage and cart configurations are designed to create a bespoke experience. From branding all aspects of our carts and equipment through to personalising all food and packaging items, we can tailor everything to create a personalised event for you.

In today’s Covid-conscious world, we can also offer a unique way to provide safe, single servings with our cone wall or individual grazing cones, cups or boxes.

Whether it’s a brand event, corporate gig, wedding or private party, ‘The Cartery’ has the customisable food or beverage cart setup for your next event.

Taking care of the environment and our people.

We love our world and are committed to doing everything we can to take care of it. We choose local food providers (where we can) and also ensure everything we use is compostable, reusable or recyclable, where possible.

We also ensure diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do and we are focused on ensuring our team, as well as those we work with and for, is valued for who they are.
