Film production in Portland

In case you didn’t know, one of the things that sets Mundo Catering apart is that we cater for film crews.

Just recently, we had the pleasure of catering for My Dead Friend Zoe, which was executive produced by none other than Travis Kelce, a Chief’s star and boyfriend to the iconic Taylor Swift!

What’s it about? This film is a dark comedy about a female veteran, her deceased veteran best friend, and her grandfather who served in Vietnam. In addition to Travis Kelce, other notable names involved with the film include Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris. 

We at Mundo Catering love catering for films in Portland, and we figured what better time is there than the present to talk about some of the trends we’re seeing in this space so far this year?

Without further ado, let’s get right into some of the best film production catering trends for 2024.

5 film production catering trends for 2024

Here are some of the film catering trends we’re seeing in 2024:

#1: catering to dietary restrictions

Over 100 million Americans have allergies, with that number rising every year. The top eight food allergens include milk, soy, eggs, wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.

When you consider that anywhere from a hundred to a thousand people or more can be involved in a movie production, there’s a high chance that you’ll have people with dietary restrictions. Whether there are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free eaters in your crew, Mundo Catering is well-equipped to accommodate their allergy requirements.

#2: compostable and eco-friendly packaging

The pandemic made many people more conscious of their health. Since what most film production crews want is the convenient provision of food for the entire team, most people are hoping for and needing favorable packaging that ensures that both the food and customer are hygienic.

Over the past few years, there’s been a rise in demand for to-go orders. However, utilizing plastic wrap for so many of these orders can be detrimental to the environment. Therefore, the better option is to use compostable and eco-friendly packaging. (Also, learn more about what we do with leftovers.)

#3: individually boxed meals

Individually packaged meals contain creatively displayed foods for use by a single person. They are not only visually appealing but also health-conscious.

Mundo Catering puts its customers’ best interests at heart, so we will adopt these trends as they suit your needs and ensure a personalized catering experience that you and your crew can appreciate.

#4: global options

One of the things we hear a lot from film crews is that they want global cuisine, which includes foods from various parts of the world. Having internationally inspired recipes transports you to another location entirely, allowing you to enjoy a delicious meal from your favorite countries without having to hop on a plane.

Global cuisine is a fun experience that we are proud to accommodate. If your team has specific requests on what kinds of international foods they enjoy, we’re happy to work with you and make that menu a reality.

#5: boards and bars

Having grab and go options is highly requested about film crews. We make that happen by catering to each film crew’s unique requests, creating dessert bars, charcuterie boards, and much more.

Not only are boards and boards convenient and quick for film crews, who are often in a rush, but they can also look aesthetically pleasing. That can leave a great impression and ensure your team is taken care of and fed in the process.
