Australian business Brownes Dairy has expanded its ‘Milko’ delivery service of milk, cheese and other dairy products in Perth to meet the demand during the state’s five-day Covid lockdown.
The company said home deliveries of its dairy products doubled compared to WA’s first lockdown last year.
“Brownes Milko quickly became a lifeline for people in Perth who were unable to get to the shops during the lockdown, and since then we’ve kept this traditional community service going strong,” said Brownes spokesperson Natalie Sarich-Dayton.
“Now as WA faces another lockdown, Brownes is proud to be on the ground for West Australians again with a wide range of quality products and more delivery locations.”
WA premier Mark McGowan announced another lockdown on Sunday for Perth and the Peel and South West regions. Brownes Dairy dispatched 12 Milko vans for the delivery of the dairy products from 6am to 8pm and included deliveries to Armadale and Rockingham.
The company will add more areas this week to meet the demand.
Brownes is applying Covid-safe plan for deliveries such as drivers wearing masks and gloves and texting customers before they arrive. The products are set down outside the doors instead of handing them to customers for safety.
Customers can order milk, cheese and other dairy products online and they will be delivered the next day for free for a minimum spend of $10.
