Big Harvest P/L was established in January 2000.
After a corporate catering career with a Melbourne law office, chef Angela Kellett took her skills and joined forces with a friend to run the kitchen at the Public Office, an offshoot of local architects Six Degrees.

After the sale of this kitchen, Big Harvest established their own in February 2002 at new digs in Elgin St. Carlton. The Big Harvest Food Store offered meals to hungry locals, served as a convenient base for catering gigs, and employed about half a dozen Big Harvesters.  Today, it creates bespoke and a la carte catering for functions, events, conferences, and office lunches.
