One of the most important aspects of Bitton as a business and David Bitton personally is to consistently give back. To give back to the community that has supported us and to give back to the industry that we have been a part of for so many years.
Some of the Charities we have worked with
Chris O’Brien Life House for Cancer
Board Member from 2013 to 2016
It is difficult to find someone who has not been touched in some way, by Cancer. Over many years David and a team of friends and colleagues have supported the wonderful work that the Life House does by raising funds through the Ride to Conquer Cancer. In addition David was honoured to have been invited to be on the Board of this research and treatment centre in 2013.
Ronald MacDonald House at Randwick Children's Hospital
Family Room Ambassador from January 2013 – Present
This incredible Charity first came to David's attention when his own daughter was very sick as a young girl. Thankfully she recovered fully however there are many families who are not so lucky. The work that the Ronald MacDonald House do to ensure that families of sick children have comfortable a home away from home in often such devastating circumstances.
Australia Day Ambassador
Proud ambassador since 2012
As a Frenchman who immigrated to Australia and then married a South African women who's family also immigrated here, you cannot imagine the joy it brings David to tell his story and give other Australian's the gift of citizenship on Australia Day.

Our Local Communities
Bitton has always been very involved in the local communities that support our cafes. Whenever possible, we like to employ local staff and give back where we can.
