We are currently unable to ensure the availability of Nutricia Karicare and Aptamil products on New Zealand supermarket shelves.
Further pressure on supplies has occurred following new food safety concerns overseas. Consequently, we have experienced further demand for Karicare and Aptamil products.
Over the last three years we have invested significantly to increase production and supply. As a result we have gone from making five thousand tonnes of Karicare and Aptamil products to twenty thousand tonnes each year.
Further, Nutricia is working with supply partners to increase capacity by 50% over the next 12 months.
Nutricia also works closely with New Zealand retail partners to ensure all Kiwi Babies and Toddlers have access to our products. Should New Zealand families be unable to find Karicare and Aptamil in supermarkets, our products are available through our online distribution partner, Baby Online: www.babyonline.co.nz.
