Remote Camp Catering


Food is a basic human need that takes on added value in a remote work camp. Catering quality is almost as important to your workforce as wages – the comfort found in hearty, nutritious catered meals after a tough shift can be the factor that convinces skilled workers to stay on the job.

Remote camp catering is our specialty. For more than 25 years, Outland has offered superior camp catering services in Canada’s far north. Our well-established relationships with national food suppliers let us provide catering in remote camps with the best products at the best price.

Quality catering and employee morale

Premium catering in a remote camp setting has a positive effect on turnover rates and productivity. A well-fed workforce is a healthier, happier workforce. Our remote camp catering menus are designed to give your workers great-tasting meals and better nutrition. The result? Fewer sick days and accidents, enhanced wellbeing, and improved safety. Our clients are so pleased, they rarely leave us – we enjoy a 99% client retention rate for our remote camp catering services.

Fresh food philosophy

To us, cooking in remote camps does not mean pre-packaged boxes. We create our menus to rely on quality fresh ingredients from top suppliers. Our chefs prepare healthy, hearty meals from scratch with the freshest produce, finest cuts of meat, and brand name products. Our menus and recipes continually evolve to optimize seasonal produce and supplies.

We create customized menus that appeal to different tastes and palates. With Outland catering your remote camp worksite, your workers will appreciate the extra effort we put in to make them happy:

 Menu theme nights

  • Holiday celebrations
  • Special VIP dinners
  • Meals to suit dietary restrictions

 Experienced Red Seal chefs

We hire licensed Red Seal chefs with hotel and restaurant training and screen them carefully for specific qualities that suit catering in a remote camp setting. Our excellent track record as an employer means we attract the best culinary talent and enjoy low turnover in our kitchens.

We work with communities in the far north to hire locally wherever possible and support all our remote-camp catering staff with a team of executive chefs and nutritionists based at Outland’s head office. This collaborative approach ensures that morale remains high and quality is never compromised.

Hands-on kitchen management

We manage all catering operations ourselves – no subcontracting to third parties. This way we can ensure all our remote camp catering services meet the highest standards for quality, safety and environmental stewardship.

Outland is Canada’s only remote camp catering company that staffs camp kitchens with a team of Red Seal chefs and regional managers to oversee operations. We work directly with you to craft a customized remote-camp catering program that is cost-effective and top quality.

Well-fed workers are happier
