WE LOVE FOOD! Lux Catering and Events is committed to regional cooking and creates dramatic menus for our clients focusing on the diverse offerings of our region. We cook from scratch with all-natural ingredients. This means we employ more chefs and bakers because we do things by hand rather than buying prepared or frozen ingredients, and we use organic ingredients whenever possible. We work with an extensive list of purveyors to offer the freshest local ingredients, in fact 40% - 70% of our food is sourced locally (depending on seasonality). We source many of our ingredients from local farmers and work with like-minded companies that practice sustainability and exercise sustainable thinking.
WE LOVE UTAH We feel it’s our responsibility to take a close look at our impact on the environment and do our part to protect our planet and the beautiful state that we live in. Our offices are 100% wind powered through the blue sky program, which means all of the electricity we use is offset by wind power energy that we purchase. LUX Catering and Events is one of the first caterers in Utah that has an award winning comprehensive recycling system in place. On average, we have 150lbs of food waste per day - that’s 27 tons a year! Instead of taking up space in a landfill, these leftovers will be recycled into fertilizers for city parks, and local farms. Over the course of 6 months, we will have recycled enough to fill a dumpster the length of 30 football fields. A variety of items enter our kitchen on a daily basis, but only 4 things end up in a landfill: plastic wrap, tape, gloves and solid items that accompany food, such as aluminum foil. The rest is recycled or composted!
WE LOVE EVENTS We are always looking for new and creative ideas to bring to our clients. Bringing what’s new and trendy while still maintaining our focus on the environment can be a challenge. We love recycling what’s old making it into what’s new and trendy. Upcycling event décor has become a passion for our design team. We also offer several lines of biodegradable disposable-ware, one made from corn starch, and one from sustainably harvested palm fronds. All in all we are committed to a better, cleaner world for all of us. To learn even more visit our website: www.luxcateringandevents.com
