Carbon Neutral
Certified Catering

atiyah assesses and quantifies the greenhouse emissions of your meals across all stages of their life cycle to highlight the emission savings from your event.

By choosing atiyah for your catering needs, you are replacing other more emission intensive meal and drink options, and as a result, also reducing their footprint.

Compostable Packaging

There is no Planet B. atiyah uses BioPak – the most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging on the market. We’re focussed on reducing the tree-based paper and fossil fuel-based plastic so often used in foodservice ware by offering an eco-friendly alternative.

Organic Waste Management

atiyah will provide compost bins to divert all the organic waste and compostable packaging from both the kitchen and the event itself from landfill. This waste will be processed into nutrient-rich compost in less than 12 weeks through Compost  Connect.

Our authentic family recipes celebrate a generous Lebanese culture tradition where whole food ingredients rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes and healthy plant based fats from olive oil, nuts and seeds are combined with spices and herbs to produce incredible flavours. We bring the authentic flavours from the streets of Lebanon to your plate.

Sourced from ethical growers and sustainable farms, our awesome food is always made fresh. You really can taste the difference, from the tangy flavour punch of sumac, to the nutty toasted sesame seeds in our za’atar and the slightly sweet and salty goat’s labneh. The quality of the ingredients we use shines through every time. 


We combine the Lebanese and Middle Eastern diets with fresh, local, premium produce to create an incredibly healthy and delicious food experience. Our menu selections range from lunch & picnic boxes to seasonal grazing platters and hot food. Our team will happily customise a menu for your special event or occasion and can accommodate any specific dietary requirements.
