Tips for your functions
If you are only having a few snacks at an event, and not actually serving it as a meal, then we normally recomend 6 units per person. So if you have a light snack for 100 people then you would need app. 600 units to cater for the function.
Starter before a meal (Eg: Buffet / Table Starter)
For a starter option, we recomend 3 - 4 units per person, you can serve this by laying it out on the buffet table, in baskets on a table or you can put 3 individual items on a plate if your starter is plated.
Should you be providing snacks over a meal time, then we recomend 8 - 10 Units per person. So if you have a function for 100 people then you would need between 800 - 1000 units to cater for the function.
