After over 35 years pouring his inventiveness and passion into his business, Philippe Capdevielle’s son Romain has now taken over, continuing the family tradition of authenticity, creativity, sharing and sustainability. Meeting an event caterer who never ceases to amaze us with the excellence of their cuisine and commitments!

CAPDEVIELLE TRAITEUR, an event caterer based in Nouvelle-Aquitaine, is well-known for the high-quality and originality of their culinary creations, as well as for their strong, long-standing commitments to the environment and social responsibility and for having built a strong spirit and a clear, shared identity.

For over 30 years they have adapted the spirit of the gourmet cuisine we love, with seasonal offerings and a passion for the products, to suit the requirements of the catering profession and receptions by constantly proposing new creations and new culinary concepts.

The team of professionals combine their passion and skills to create fun cocktails, prestigious dinners and home meal deliveries.

These values are a source of trust for their customers and true pride for their employees.

The vision

This family business has a real desire to pass on the values they hold dear.

CAPDEVIELLE TRAITEUR develops a clear vision of the customer experience, employee experience, employer brand and the new interactions that the company must foster.

Responsible innovations

CAPDEVIELLE TRAITEUR is the first caterer to have created a carbon calculator certified by ADEME to use for its events, reception venues and customers. Their ISO 20212 in 2019 marked a new step forward in their responsible approach.

After 6 months of work, they presented the Delta Project: their entire carbon balance for 2022 and their actions to reduce their impact by 2024.

Their personalised carbon calculator, adapted to their production tool and their menu, allows them to provide clients with an ADEME certified carbon analysis on request after their events.

Year after year, they will be able to measure, compare and reduce the carbon impact of their events and activities with the aim of offering increasingly responsible events.
