APTAMIL FEED THICKENER
We have experienced a delay in the latest production of Aptamil Feed Thickener and as a result there are very low stocks available at retail level. Unfortunately, our best estimate on when this product will be back in full supply again is the 3rd week of October.
We understand that this product is extremely important in the diets of some babies, and we encourage you to please contact our Careline team on 1800 438 500. We would like to provide you with support that is specific to your baby’s needs.
We apologise for the difficulty that this situation may cause your family and assure you that we are doing everything we can, to try and improve on the current estimated availability date.

Danone Nutricia is committed to providing mums, dads and carers with products that meet the highest quality and safety standards. Our commitment is such that our standards exceed Australian and New Zealand industry requirements.
Change in suppliers
Danone Nutricia’s product range has always been made from a blend of ingredients sourced from New Zealand, Australia and other overseas suppliers. A recent shift in Danone Nutricia’s supplier network has led to a change in the origin of some of these ingredients.
Our base powder is now sourced from a number of other suppliers in Australia, New Zealand and Europe that have all met Danone Nutricia’s rigorous quality and safety standards.
Same nutritional support
Our products still deliver the same nutritional benefits, however there may be a slight variation in taste, colour and or/smell of your usual product. All packaging labels have been updated to reflect any changes in the source of ingredients used and these products will also display an on-lid sticker to notify mums, dads and carers that the change has taken place.
Look out for this sticker on lid:
Still blended and packed in New Zealand
Danone Nutricia remains committed to source ingredients locally from New Zealand and Australia, and will also continue to proudly blend and pack the majority of our Karicare and Aptamil products in New Zealand. This commitment was recently demonstrated through Danone Nutricia’s agreement with the Sutton Group and Gardians to acquire local facilities in New Zealand. These facilities will provide Danone Nutricia with long term access to fresh NZ milk supply, and additional blending and packing capabilities.
Which Aptamil products does this affect?
All Aptamil Gold+ products, stages 1 to 4, in Australia & New Zealand (with the exception of Aptamil Gold+ De-Lact, AllerPro, Pepti-Junior and Feed Thickener).
As part of the change, some products will transition to a new scoop. We make the scoop size to hold the correct weight of formula powder to ensure the required nutrients in each serving. Look out for this when you see the on-lid stickers above. It is always recommended that you use the scoop enclosed in each tin purchased.
If you have any questions about this change, our trained Careline team of Nutritionists, Dietitians and Midwives are happy to provide you with information and guidance.
