the history of little breads & catering
Egg is based in Prahran, Victoria and employs over thirty people, all passionate about little foods.
Established in 1997, Egg Unlimited commenced as a bespoke bakery, supplying miniature breads to Melbourne’s finest corporate caterers and hotels. Egg established itself as a leading supplier of unique mini bread and pastry products, all handmade and baked in their custom made tins.
The demand for these little breads quickly grew and within twelve months, Egg released its first canapés range – the bread and pastry range filled with delicious and seasonal produce. From here, the Egg Unlimited team became known around Melbourne as ‘the people that do the little smoked salmon bagel’’. The little world of perfectly sized cocktail food had hit and was the toast of the Spring Racing Carnival, the Grand Prix and every leading Melbourne corporate catering event in between.
By 1999 Egg had developed its sweet canapés range, a delectable feast of miniature sweet goodies that included the ever popular chocolate ganache cake and uniquely shaped, perfectly portioned, pudding range. The popularity of the sweet range saw the Egg production grow with the demand for corporate catering grow to over 8000 units a day.
No rest at Egg! In 2004 Julie devised the Deluxe Lunchbox range to refresh the tired old boardroom lunch. The Hamper range was to come in 2009 and with it more options for corporate catered lunches. Like the Lunchboxes, the Hamper range included classic Egg Unlimited flavours along with some new favourites.
In 2011, Egg Unlimited released its Wellbeing range. The Wellbeing range is incorporated across all Egg Unlimited product lines, from breads, sweets, lunchboxes and hampers and is an ever-growing list of items that focuses on seasonable, sustainable and positive eating.
