Centrally located at 201 Beaufort Street Perth, the AAC building holds a longstanding significance for the Indigenous Community of Perth. This dwelling was widely known as the ‘Aboriginal Centre’, until 1968, when the CBD exclusion zone curfew for Indigenous people was lifted. It then became the ‘Aboriginal Advancement Council Building’, where Kuditj now operates.
Kuditj is Fully Licensed Corporate Function, Training and Conference Centre. We also produce our own range of Premium Beef Jerky, sold throughout Australia.
Kuditj offers corporate catering both on premise and delivered. On site, we have multiple venues to suit our clientele’s needs. These include: a venue for corporate functions, a training and conference room and registered manufacturing facilities. Kuditj also delivers catering and offers a selection of menus, all of which incorporate Native Australian ingredients. Our Chefs create every item on our menu, and the food is made fresh to order.
Kuditj provides genuine opportunities for their employees and trainees, as the centre functions as a unique “hands on” training environment, working in tandem with educational pathways. Our Project Manager and Head Chef are experienced mentors who provide assistance and support in the development and career pathways for our Indigenous staff and our Aboriginal school based trainees.
We support and cater for a variety of Indigenous cultural events. These include: art shows, concerts or trade shows. As an organization that focuses on providing culinary training for Indigenous Australians, we can assist in creating an authentic, cultural experience at these events. We take part in many significant Indigenous events throughout the year.
As a multi-faceted company, we are able to cater for a variety of scales and purposes, whilst simultaneously mentoring and training our staff in several areas. These include: Certificate III in Cookery, Certificate III in Business, Food & Beverage Services, Customer Service, Event Planning and Retail Marketing.
