University Meat Director, Alex Marcocci, believes that in the current climate, community solidarity is critical.
“It’s so important to keep supporting each other during this time so we can keep the farmers, our supply chain and employees working in order to put food on the table. We source predominantly from Victorian producers and are proud to be able to offer such quality, local goods to the broader community”.

Though Alex emphasizes that part of its mission has always been to offer restaurant quality meat directly to the local community.
“It has been a long-time coming, but we couldn’t have done it alone and so I’d like to thank everyone for their continued support over the years – we’re committed to the health and safety of our suppliers, employees, customers and the community we serve”, said Alex.
