An Important Update from St David Dairy

Important information from St David Dairy about changes to Fitzroy Retail Shop – 18/03/2020

Update 24/3/2020

In light of increased community need, our retail window opening hours have been extended.

As the COVID-19 situation rapidly evolves across Victoria and the rest of the country, it is more important than ever that we are actively putting precautions in place with the safety of our customers and people front of mind.

We are a business made up of people, run by dairy people, who make products to be enjoyed by people. Whilst the production of our 100% Australian made dairy in Fitzroy is continuing, we appreciate that it is not business as usual in the amazing cafés, restaurants, shops and supermarkets where our dairy products are bought and enjoyed. Our thoughts go out to all those within our tight-knit dairy community during this challenging time.

In this time of uncertainty, the best thing we can do is to continue to serve our community by doing what we do best, and that is to keep creating our locally made dairy products. We will, of course, be employing special policies and precautions to protect our team and our customers, and we’ll be continually reviewing and updating our practices in line with best advice from health and government authorities. We’ll also endeavour to communicate the impact of any changes on our local dairy operation via our customer channels and our website.

Out of an abundance of caution, we advise the following changes to the operation of our local dairy retail store;

Thoughts and best wishes,
