Nuztri: A Safe Formula Alternative for Concerned Kiwi Parents
Baby Formula maker Nuztri would like to offer concerned Kiwi parents a trusted alternative to the recalled Karicare Stage 1 and Stage 2 Formula products.
“Parents need to know what to do in this situation, which can cause so much fear,” says Nuztri operations manager Sheena Burton. “We want them to know our product is available and has been given the all-clear by Fonterra. We have not been affected.”
Nuztri are the ONLY 100% New Zealand-made formula on the market and yet have struggled to gain distribution for their product in the North Island due to pressure from the major players in the formula industry.
“In New Zealand, we have access to top quality milk products at very affordable prices, however, all infant, follow-on and toddler formula milk products marketed in New Zealand are currently dominated by multi-national brands, which are mostly produced overseas,” says Burton.
“No one has become ill from the products as yet and this can be put down to Fonterra’s action,” says Burton. “But, we still believe that buying NZ products is safer.”
Sheena Burton is available for comment on this issue.
