Australia COVID LIVE updates: Victoria enjoys first weekend out of lockdown as COVID-19 cases continue to grow across the state, NSW

Stefan Roth is one of a growing category of Victorian businesses selling themselves as “non-discriminatory” as the state reopens with widespread vaccine mandates.

“I absolutely refuse to become a vaccination policeman,” he says. “As a businessman, I will deliver my inventory to everyone, everywhere, whenever they want me, without discrimination, period.”

Mr Roth’s food delivery business has been non-contact since the pandemic began. He takes orders online and leaves his cakes and sweets at the door of his buyers.

Victoria’s COVID-19 jab mandate, enforced in almost all public settings from Friday, scarcely impacts his day-to-day operation.

Yet Mr Roth’s Alpen Delicious is among Victorian businesses advertising themselves as “non-discriminatory”, promising to serve customers regardless of their vaccination status as the state opens up.

“I’m sending a message: if you’re getting product from someone and they’re causing you grief because of your decision around the vaccine, there is an alternative,” continues Mr Roth, who says he received his first AstraZeneca dose last week.
