Award-winning Food & Healthy Venues

We are about real, fresh food sourced locally

The Forum
Our food philosophy

One of the most important aspects of a feel-good event is fine food, an experience outside the ordinary. However, a day or two sitting at a conference, combined with heavy eating at meal breaks, works against the aspect of learning and creative thinking.

We are on a mission to change this.

We are about healthy food choices…

…about real, fresh food sourced from our kitchen gardens and ethical local suppliers. About menus with reduced fat, sugar, salt – free range and Green List compliant – no harmful additives. And we are about smaller, healthier desserts and snack portions as a lifestyle option.

Creative menu choices, beautifully served

Menus to nourish both body and mind

Delicious food, nutritious food, sustainable food, creating joy and delight with each food serving, be it a grand dinner or a light snack – this is our feel-good as food visionaries, our language of love. Our kitchen and serving staff are enrolled in the “Be The Finest” programme fostering love and pride for every aspect of the food and hospitality journey.

Well-being | The event as a healthy experience

Nature as a source of well-being is important to us. All our venues are Healthy Venue Gold Certified with a focus on daylight in the conference rooms and outdoor or landscaped gardens as breakaway meeting spaces. We have pioneered the concept of more standing at conferences, walking meetings, breaking for a few minutes for stress relief – yoga stretching, breathing, meditation… even a local Pilates class or a round of golf at the end of a long day.

The Forum is the first African venue to be awarded the status of a WOF Gold Healthy Venue

Christine Abrahams-Ewers, PA to the CEO, NinetyOne


… amazing experience. The food served throughout the day was exquisite, and different. The venue is absolutely beautiful, my team was blown away. Phenomenal service – consistent from set-up to welcoming to breakaways to lunch. My people, from the service industry themselves, complimented the staff on how wonderful they were.
