About Us

Based in Darwin, Arafura Catering Equipment was established in 1999 by Roger and Sharon Pearson, both highly experienced in the catering industry.

Since opening it’s door the business has not stopped growing. Roger and Sharon put this down to the fact, that as well as offering quality service and products, Arafura Catering Equipment follows up with excellent maintenance and spare parts.

We now service Northern Australia to East Timor, including the Northern Territory, Northern Western Australia and Northern Queensland.

Our team is highly qualified and experienced in the hospitality industry and has the skills and ability to meet your specific needs and budgets.

Our extensive industrial experience and knowledge ensures we have an understanding of the main types of food services, the structure of menu's and flow patterns, what equipment is available, how each item of equipment can be used and its capacity.
