A tag shop=dairy is used for shops selling  dairy products. Not rare such shops are not big stores, which are designated for inhabitants of some urban quarter, which get new fresh production every day.

A production facility or factory producing dairy products should instead be tagged using man_made=works with dairy specified as the product=*.

Note in New Zealand English, "dairy" usually refers to a small convenience store - These should be tagged using shop=convenience and not this tag.

How to map

Set a node at the center of the shop or draw an area along its outline.

Tag it with shop=dairy.
