As well as making it our mission to source only the best locally and ethically raised produce, we also see it as our responsibility to educate consumers about the difference between ethically raised, outdoor bred, free-range and organic livestock versus animals who have spent their very short lives being intensively farmed.
Through eight generations our family have distinguished themselves as artisanal butchers dedicated to our rich and ancient craft. We consider butchery a noble art.
We respect the animal and how it has been raised and this respect is carried through to when it arrives in store and is divided into primal cuts.
The produce we hand select and turn into products for your consumption, is devoid of fillers, preservatives and water, but full of taste just as nature intended. We guarantee you will love what we have on offer.
After all, we only serve you - our valued customers - what we are happy to serve our own family.
MERCHANTS OF FINE FOOD
Both myself and Rose are passionate about healthy food. Food that is sourced from nature in its most wholesome state. That is why in addition to higher welfare, organic, free range, grass fed and outdoor bred produce, you will find a huge selection of gluten, fructose, preservative free and allergy friendly products for your pantry.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
As a consumer you have choices. You can choose to buy your meat from the supermarket, where you will pay less but you will also get an inferior product. Or you can choose to purchase your meat from a butcher that cares about the lifecycle of the animal. We care about where your meat comes from and how it has been bred. We're very happy to explain the process of making ethically raised, locally sourced, hand selected and free range produce available to you at a price point that is not only affordable, but fair for everyone. We also stock an extensive range of speciality grocery items for those who suffer from gluten, dairy, nut or other allergies/intolerances as well as vegan and vegetarian foods. Di Censo Fine Foods is proud to be allergy friendly!
HIGHER WELFARE PRODUCE
The produce we source must have been cared for to the highest animal husbandry standards. It must be ethically raised and higher welfare in order for us to partner with a farmer as a supplier of our meat and poultry. Our customers can therefore trust they are getting premium produce.
ALLERGY FRIENDLY PANTRY
Di Censo Fine Foods stock an extensive range of pasta, bread, eggs, sauces, stocks, broths, oils, vinegars, flours, cereal & grains, all stocked for their allergy friendly profile. We also stock vegan and vegetarian products, & don't use preservatives, artificial flavours or MSG in our ready made meals.
AWARD WINNING SAUSAGES
Our sausages are award winning as judged by the Australian Meat Industry Council. They are gluten, fructose, preservative and MSG free and have no artificial flavours or fillers. You can tell the quality of meat and poultry used in our sausages by their tenderness and flavour.
HOUSE CURED SMALLGOODS
All our small goods are house cured. Whether it's ham, bacon, kranskys, smoked hocks, pastrami or smoked fillets you need, we make them all on the premises. Our smoking process is nitrate free, which ensures you get a range of premium cured meats to choose from.

We believe in educating the next generation about the importance of eating well. Our contribution to helping make this happen is to have small groups of school children come into the shop and see how produce is prepared and get them to make something to take home for dinner.
