Nutrico Optimum is a new infant and
toddler formula that is 100% made
in Australia from 100% Australian
powdered milk. The company is also
100% Australian owned with its Stage
1, 2 and 3 formula distributed in
Australia by Grocery Industries Australia.
According to the company, unlike
other infant and toddler formulas sold
in Australia, Nutrico Optimum includes
essential nutrients in each of its three
stages including the prebiotics FOS
and GOS, DHA (Omega 3), Taurine,
Choline, Beta-Carotene and L-Carnitine.
These and its other nutrients, vitamins
and minerals have been shown in
clinical trials to be beneficial to the
development of infants and toddlers.
Further, it does not include artificial
sweeteners, colours and flavourings,
which are commonly found in branded
infant formulas in Australia.
Nutrico is produced from milk farmed in
the western district of Victoria through
its production partner Camperdown
Dairy International (CDI). Craig Ford,
Managing Director of Nutrico, said the
impetus for developing a new infant
formula was when he and his partner,
Maia Dodds, could not find a branded
formula for daughter Camila that was
free of sweeteners such as maltodextrin,
sucrose and corn syrup and was made
ethically with 100 per cent Australian
To ensure authenticity, every tin of
Nutrico Optimum formula has a unique
QR code on its base. Scanning the
QR code with a smartphone provides
purchasers with an instant check to
ensure it’s a genuine tin of Australian
made Nutrico Optimum formula.
Zyrtec Nasal Spray
Zyrtec is growing three times as fast as
the category as a whole according to J&J
Pacific and now has Zyrtec Nasal Spray in
its allergy portfolio, offering pharmacy a
complete and effective range of solutions
to suit every allergy occasion. Almost
20% of the Australian population has an
allergy and this number is increasing.
Allergic rhinitis (or hay fever), one of the
most common allergies, affects around
15% of Australians, or about 3.1 million
people. Further, females among the age
of 25–44 report being affected by allergic
rhinitis more commonly than men.
Zyrtec Nasal Spray provides customers
with targeted, on-the-go relief from
sneezing and a runny or itchy nose.
With a non-drowsy formula, Zyrtec Nasal
Spray delivers relief within minutes and
lasts for hours, so they can get back to
enjoying life the way they want to.
Sonya King, Group Marketing Manager,
Johnson & Johnson Pacific said:
‘Unexpected allergy flare ups can be
incredibly disruptive to one’s daily
routine and cause significant frustration
and stress. We know that customers with
allergies often keep their tablets at home
and forget to carry any relief with them
should they experience any allergy flare
up triggered while out and about. Zyrtec
Nasal Spray provides fast relief you can
see, so people can get back to enjoying
their day quickly.’
