During this time, our thoughts are with all those affected by the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) around the world.

Like any family, we are in this together and we are here for you.

For us, that means continuing to safely produce the essential products that our communities rely on with the utmost of care. On the ground, we have implemented the strict precautionary measures from local and global experts to help keep our people safe. We want to express our gratitude to every Saputo employee for their ongoing passion and dedication during these unprecedented times.Read more

Local community partnerships

Foodbank Australia

Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) is proud to be a national donor of Foodbank Australia.

In September 2019, we were pleased to sign a three-year agreement to continue our dairy product donations to help communities in need and address the issue of food insecurity.

Our Devondale milk donations are distributed by Foodbank every week to hungry Australians, including school breakfast clubs to feed students. We donate additional dairy products as needed, including for Foodbank’s bushfire emergency food relief program.

We believe in building healthier communities and promoting healthy lifestyle habits. Working with Foodbank means we can help support over 2,400 front line charities, local community organisations and over 2,000 schools across the country.

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation

Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) is pleased to be partnering with the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation (SAKGF) to help provide children with skills and experiences that can lead to positive food behaviours throughout their life. In October 2019, SDA signed a three-year agreement to become the sole Professional Development Partner of SAKGF.

SAKGF is a not-for-profit charity that supports educators to deliver pleasurable food education to children across Australia. Pleasurable food education teaches children to grow, harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal, delicious food to form positive food habits for life. A key element of this support is providing professional development to educators, teachers and specialist at over 2,000 Australian schools and services delivering the SAKG Program.

Our contribution will be used by the SAKGF to increase its capacity to deliver professional development to more educators across urban and regional areas. The partnership reflects the heart of the Saputo values, which is our commitment to healthy living and nutrition.
