Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) confirms the renewal of its national partnership with Foodbank.  

To help ensure the food relief organisation can provide a consistent supply of fresh milk to the many Australians doing it tough.   

“We know more than 3.7 million households struggled to put a meal on the table in the past year,” said Foodbank Australia CEO, Brianna Casey. 

“Foodbank relies on the invaluable support of our partners like Saputo Dairy Australia to meet the increasing demand for nutritious food and groceries.” 

SDA Commercial Director, Cameron Bruce, highlighted that SDA looks forward to continuing to deliver on our community commitments, working alongside Australia’s biggest hunger relief charity to provide dairy nutrition to those who need a hand. 

“We remain committed to supporting Foodbank with our fresh milk donations, discounted long-life milk and dairy products,” said Bruce.  

“With our long history of giving back to the communities where our employees live and work, and with the current cost of living challenges, this partnership with Foodbank is a valuable way for us to support families in need,” he said.  

SDA is a long-time partner of Foodbank, contributing dairy products that have helped support thousands of frontline charities since 2011. In 2023, SDA’s support provided the equivalent of 594,100 meals for people experiencing hardship and 8,400kg of other grocery items.   

SDA further supports the efforts of Foodbank through its employee volunteering program, with its Melbourne team members recently lending a hand at Foodbank Victoria in Yarraville.   

“Saputo have been donating fresh milk to Foodbank for over a decade and its committed support is making a difference in communities across the country,” added Casey.  

According to Foodbank, Australia is in a food security crisis, where 48 per cent of the population feels anxious about or struggles to access food consistently.
