About the Big Fig

The Big Fig makes fresh, delicious food using locally sourced ingredients. We offer exciting menus for events, parties and business meetings. From our freshly baked focaccia bread, to our Sussex wood pigeon carpaccio topped with maderia jelly, to our delectable brownies – we’ll ensure you’re getting something special.

We are a part of The Platform, a social enterprise with the aim of creating a thriving social economy in Brighton and Hove and beyond. We achieve this through running our own social businesses, supporting people to achieve their potential through learning and skills, and supporting other social enterprises in the city to set up and grow. This project is part funded by the Big Lottery Fund.

At the Big Fig we deliver exceptional catering whilst also creating positive social outcomes. Our profit is reinvested to teach people with barriers to work to cook healthy food, learn skills, gain qualifications and get into a career in catering.
