Gourmet grazing boxes in all shapes and sizes
Conveniently crafted by professional caterers and delivered straight to your workplace, grazing boxes are an easy way to impress guests at a meeting, attendees at a workshop or just treat your staff as part of a Friday-night drinks offering.
Available in sweet varieties (including treats like mini muffins, macarons, chocolates and fruit) or the classic cheese-and-charcuterie-in-a box option, grazing boxes can be made for groups of just about any size and taste.
Individual grazing boxes make portion control and catering for special dietary requirements easy, where larger boxes can easily cater for a dozen people or more.
The perfect food-filled gift boxes for a holiday or event
Sometimes a holiday is best marked with an extra special treat, and a sweet grazing box can do just that.
Hot cross buns and bunny-shaped cookies baked fresh for Easter, “snow”-covered lamingtons and candy canes dished up for Christmas and plenty of purple treats for the incredible women in your office on International Women’s Day.
But whether it’s an annual event or not, it’s always a lovely surprise to come into work in the morning to find a box of goodies to enjoy for morning tea.

Some of the must-have items in grazing boxes
Of course there are no hard and fast rules to creating grazing boxes, but there are often some expectations by guests when they know they're on the meny
Brunch boxes often have baked goods, including sweet items like danishes and muffins as well as savouries like croissants or mini quiches. To balance it out, sliced fruit or skewers are often included. Of course, don't forget condiments like butter and jam too!
If you're serving snacks or nibbles, cheese and meats are usually the main attraction of a grazing box. Think of a cheese or charcuterie board, just in a box! Guests will expect a range of soft and hard cheeses, mild and spicy meats along with sides like olives and dried fruit.
Dessert boxes are an extra special treat. Packed with chocolates, bite-sized brownies, mini cupcakes and small slices, these indulgent grazing boxes are perfect for after lunch or as an afternoon pick-me-up during a day of meetings.
Why you should order your grazing boxes with EatFirst
Huge variety of grazing boxes you can order with us
We all love a cheese and charcuterie board packed with gourmet cheeses and cured meats, but at EatFirst, there’s a grazing box for every meal!
Breakfast boxes filled with mini croissants stuffed with ham and cheese, granola cups and muffins; lunch boxes with various wraps, mini quiches and fruit skewers; delicious dessert boxes come stuffed with sweet treats.
We can help cater your grazing boxes to to special diets
The beauty of a grazing box is that they can easily be prepared individually or based on personal or dietary preference. Since you aren’t cooking or making the items, there’s no real science to how much of which item goes in - or is left out! Personalise them as you need.
So if you’re catering for a group with a lot of vegans and vegetarians, easily avoid cross-contamination with a separate box that only includes plant-based items, like cashew- or soy-based cheeses, grilled vegetables instead of charcuterie and plenty of veggies and dips.
If you have anyone that coeliac, gluten-free biscuits kept separate from wheat-based ones is vital. Dairy-free cheeses and sweets are needed for those with lactose intolerances as well.
Portioning made simple
Not sure how much cheese, nuts or cured meats to prepare for each person? We're here to help!
As seen on the screenshot below, our marketplace items list out how many people shared boxes and platters are designed for so you can get a better idea of budgeting, how much food to order and whether you'll need small, medium or large grazing boxes for your group.
Where can I order grazing boxes?
Almost anywhere in Australia! We work with hundreds of caterers from coast to coast to bring quality catering to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Many of caterers will travel to smaller cities nearby capitals, too, including Newcastle, Wollongong and the Gold Coast.
What's usually in a grazing box?
For savoury grazing boxes, expect to find cheese, cured meats, nuts, dried and fresh fruit and biscuits. Some will also include veggies and dip.
If you're getting a sweet grazing box, you'll likely find macrons, mini cupcakes, chocolates, fruits and bite-size slices and brownies.
