David and the team from David’s Larder swear by the philosophy ‘We Serve to Serve Again’ which means their main focus is to provide and distribute a product that is of excellent quality and taste which customers will continue to enjoy.
But what is the David’s Larder story and what makes this butcher such a great one?
Founder – David Robb MacDonald, was born 1980 in Dundee, Scotland.
He graduated from Aberdeen University in July 2001 with a Master of Arts degree, and after graduating returned to his hometown of Dundee to follow in his father ‘s (Brian Robb MacDonald) & grandfather’s (David Robb MacDonald) footsteps to develop his skills in the butcher trade and expand the family business in Lochee, a local suburb of Dundee.
In that same year David met an Australian Lass who was visiting her family in Dundee. Subsequently in the years to follow, a marriage and 2 babies, David, his wife Natalie and their sons returned, in January 2010, to Natalie’s hometown Sydney where David took a role as a butcher in Cox’s Road Mall. In 2012 baby no. 3 arrived Ms Scarlett MacDonald.
David believes the most important aspect on a professional level is gaining approval from customers who are critiquing honestly (not just his wife saying she likes it out of love). David’s Larder has all the things you expect from a great butcher, such as the best quality meat you can get in Sydney. But it’s the extra things David’s Larder brings to the table such as a vast range of Scottish favourites and gluten free options that set it apart from the rest.
