Local community partnerships
Saputo Dairy Australia (SDA) is proud to be a national donor of Foodbank Australia.
Our ongoing support and dairy product donations help communities in need and addresses the issue of food security.
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 and flood emergency food relief programs.
We believe in building healthier communities and promoting healthy lifestyle habits. Working with Foodbank means we can help support over 2,950 front line charities, local community organisations and over 2,890 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.
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. Our support helps deliver the program to over 1,500 Australian schools and early childhood centres.
The partnership reflects the heart of the Saputo values, which is our commitment to healthy living and nutrition.
We are committed to the communities where we operate. As part of this commitment, we invest in improving the quality of sport and health facilities with the objective of building a lasting legacy.
