Growing up in the hospitality industry, Belinda started out early in her career managing her parents restaurant before moving on to a national catering company. In 2004 she started her own catering business focused on just sandwiches which very quickly grew into what Flavours Catering + Events is today –one of Sydneys most successful catering companies.

Belinda has a genuine passion for all things culinary and believes that food contributes in such a significant way when celebrating special occasions. When she isn’t at Flavours, she loves to spend time with her husband and sons on the Gold Coast, dining out and exploring new restaurants and loves a good Netflix series power watch!

Her favourite menu item is the compressed watermelon, togarashi, feta, mint & lime canape.

Don’t leave chocolate around in the office, he’ll always be the first to sneak it away to his desk.

Simon Sullivan

Simon Sullivan

Official Flavours Pooch

A very important part of the Flavours team, Simon is known for his fun and affectionate attitude around the office. As Belinda’s shadow when he comes to visit, Simon sits quietly in his spot in the office unless he’s just woken from a nap and needs some pats. Apologies in advance if you call us and hear Simon playing or barking in the background, he’s likely demanding a hand shake to which the office team will always oblige.
