The Dinner Ladies is a vibrant, multicultural place to work. We are proud that our staff come from all over the world: China, Mongolia, India, Malaysia, the Czech Republic, South America, Germany, England and, yes, even Australia.

Rosie
Logistics Manager.

We are committed to equal opportunity and to helping staff find a balance between their work and the rest of their lives. We love that some of our key people have grown with us over the years and are now running the show!

Shen Wei
Operations manager.

Because the business is 100 percent owned and run by its founders, Katherine and Sophie, in some ways it’s like a big, boisterous family, with traditions and in-jokes and a lot of shared history and pride.

Arlene
Quality Assurance.

We love our weekly staff lunches, monthly birthday celebrations – complete with cakes baked by Katherine – Star of the Month announcements and quarterly Dinner Ladies Bulletin (hey, it’s a great read – and has puzzles!). It all serves to make us closer as a team, whether we work in the kitchen, the coolrooms, the delivery vans or the office, and makes us strive to do our best by each other and our customers.

At the Dinner Ladies, we're committed to efficient, sustainable solutions to sourcing ingredients, packaging our food and disposing of waste.

We go ourselves to Flemington Markets in Sydney twice a week and buy most of our fresh fruit and vegetables from local growers. Our meat is all Australian reared, predominantly grass-fed and all our poultry – chickens, ducks, turkeys and eggs – is free range – and always has been. Our seafood either comes from Australian aquaculture – Humpty Doo barramundi from the Northern Territory and Huon salmon from Tasmania – or is wild caught in Australian waters.
