Gold Infant Formula
Faulding, Australia’s oldest pharmacy
brand, is expanding its portfolio
with the launch this month of an
Australian-made infant milk formula.
The Pharmacy-Only Faulding Gold
Infant Formula range includes Newborn,
Follow-On and Toddler formulas. Unlike
many premium brands, Faulding Gold
Infant Formula is made in Australia using
milk from Australian cows.
Endeavour Consumer Health’s Executive
Director, Jennifer Luke, said the business
was committed to helping meet the
demand for Australian-made formula here
‘Many market-leading infant formula
brands sold in Australia are currently
manufactured overseas. Faulding Gold is
one of only a few premium formulas made
in Australia from Australian milk and sold
in Australian pharmacies,’ she said.
Ms Luke said the product was
manufactured in Australia under strict
quality controlled conditions and
complied with all Australian laws applying
to infant formula, including those
related to quality control, testing and
‘Importantly, we want to ensure greater
availability of our premium formula for
Australian families while supporting
manufacturing in the Gippsland region.’
Blackmores Infant Formula
Blackmores has partnered with Bega to
develop a nutritional range of products.
The first of these are infant nutrition
formulas that went on sale earlier this
Blackmores CEO, Christine Holgate
said: ‘We’ve developed three Australian
made products, formulated with the
highest quality, premium ingredients
and based on the combined expertise of
Blackmores and Bega’s subsidiary Tatura.
Together our companies have more than
180 years of combined experience in
nutrition and dairy manufacture which
is one of the key reasons our customers
trust our quality and ingredients.’
Australian pharmacies were the first to
receive delivery of the new formulas
and received more than 80% of the
total available supply according to
‘Our initial focus is supplying Australian
pharmacies so mums have quality
advice from a trusted healthcare
professional,’ Ms Holgate said.
Blackmores has also bolstered its
healthcare professional support in infant
nutrition including the addition of a
breastfeeding counsellor to its freecall
Ms Holgate said: ‘We are conscious of
the supply challenges in this category
and the Blackmores and Tatura teams
will work together to help ensure the
continued supply of this range.’
The products will supply the local
market and will also be sold through
established retailers in Asia including
Alibaba Group’s Tmall Global.
