Our Story

Born from humble beginnings and inspired by a vision to revolutionise the Dubai catering market. Harness Foods was founded on the ambition to make great food experiences by family trio (Rob, Chris and Josh Riding) in early 2020.  

Having experienced the full range of catering services available in Dubai, the Father and Son’s team saw a clear opportunity for a new approach. One based on conscious values, health ideals and exceptional service. Since inception to the current day, Harness Foods has built a reputation for world-class catering solutions. Crafting the best in class through the finest culinary chefs, skilled baristas, efficient food service and menu development.  

As with the original idea behind Harness Foods... Everyone deserves great food!
