Todd Cheavins - Aurum Catering Executive Chef

Meet our Executive Chef

Our innovative and new approach to food in aged care is driven by Canadian-born Executive Chef Todd Cheavins, a former Executive Chef at The Richardson Hotel in Perth.

Todd has cooked for many celebrities including Pink, Oprah, Pippa Middleton and even the King of Malaysia. For Todd, the most rewarding part of his job is sharing his knowledge and passion of creating good food for our aged care residents with his team of chefs.

Our Story

BaptistCare WA, a not-for-profit aged care provider, has been Aurum’s largest client since 1995. Alongside the acquisition of Aurum, BaptistCare also acquired Aurum’s sister company, DCL Services. As a result of this transaction, Aurum’s corporate structure now operates under Gnocci Holdings Pty Ltd, acting as a trustee for The Gnocci Charitable Trust.

This transformation has made Aurum a “not-for-profit” organisation, channelling its surpluses back into the WA community through its parent, BaptistCare.

Service Offerings

With over 27 years of experience, Aurum has become a leading provider of food services for aged care and healthcare facilities, schools, colleges, and community care organisations throughout Western Australia.

Aurum takes pride in producing and serving over 1 million meals each year, accommodating special diets and providing nutritionally balanced menus to cater to the specific needs of our clients.

Our current clientele includes 15 Aged Care facilities, both in metropolitan and regional areas of the state.

In addition to our core catering services, we have expanded our portfolio to include Facility Maintenance and Management. We recently entered into a long-term agreement with Baptistcare to provide these services across their state-wide property portfolio.
